Boeing (BA) slips to a loss in Q1 on COVID-19, 737 MAX grounding

The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA) reported its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 today. The bottom line was wider than the analysts’ expectations while the top-line missed consensus estimates.

Boeing slipped to a loss in the first quarter of 2020 from a profit last year, due to the impacts of COVID-19 and the 737 MAX grounding. As the pandemic continues to reduce airline passenger traffic, Boeing sees a significant impact on the demand for new commercial airplanes and services, with airlines delaying purchases for new jets, slowing delivery schedules, and deferring elective maintenance.
