Boeing has been storing some of its undelivered 737 Max jets in the employee car parks at Renton facility in Washington, US.
The employee parking lot is packed with grounded 737 Max jets and planemaker says the move was part of its “inventory-management plan”.
Boeing 737 Max planes have been grounded since March 2019, after the two crashes within 5 months interval.
According to Boeing, the 737 Max crisis had already cost it more than $1bn, and continue to cost some $2,000 a month per plane.
The Bloomberg Intelligence analyst George Ferguson estimated that Boeing’s inventory costs would surge to $12 billion by September.
“They can’t keep building and parking planes indefinitely,” Ferguson told Bloomberg.
“We are using resources across the Boeing enterprise during the pause in 737 Max deliveries, including our facilities in Puget Sound, Boeing San Antonio, and at Moses Lake,” the Boeing spokesperson Paul Bergman told Business Insider.
