Boeing records $3.5 billion charge as 787 problems mount

(Reuters) – Boeing Co said on Wednesday said it incurred a $3.5 billion charge in the fourth quarter due to longer-than-expected delivery delays of its problem-plagued 787 widebody jet.

Still, Boeing generated positive cash flow in the fourth quarter, representing its first positive cash quarter since early 2019, fueled by 737 MAX deliveries as air travel rebounds from the pandemic.
