Boeing said it plans to cut production of widebody 787s and delay a ramp-up of its key 737 Max, which has been grounded since March 2019.

CEO Dave Calhoun on Wednesday said he was "hopeful" that demand for new aircraft, devastated by the coronavirus pandemic, would start rebounding in the second half of next year.

Calhoun said he expects an uneven recovery from the pandemic for airlines around the world and that carriers that emerge healthy might want to gain an advantage over competitors with newer planes, driving demand.

"It'll happen and I believe somewhere in, depending on a vaccine and the success and distribution of a vaccine, somewhere in the second half of next year I'm hopeful that this worm turns."
