Boeing has trimmed the production target for 787 Dreamliner to five a month in mid-2021 from six.
As the International Air Passenger traffic is around 90% lower compared with last year, overall near-term demand for wide-body aircraft have declined.
Earlier in October, Boeing reduced 787 output from 14 per month to 10 per month, and later said to reduce the output by six in Mid 2021.
Now on Friday, Boeing CFO Greg Smith said the company would cut the production rate to five from six in Mid-2021.
The 787 is built on separate assembly lines in Everett and in North Charleston, South Carolina., and the largest model, the 787-10, is only built in the South Carolina plant.
