Boeing on Wednesday said it would cut thousands of additional jobs through the end of next year as it scrambles to cut costs in the pandemic.

The company’s revenue came in ahead of estimates but the company is still struggling as virus and a plunge in air travel hurts demand for new aircraft.

The company reported third-quarter results ahead of the market open.

Here are the numbers: 

  • Loss: $1.39 per share, vs. $2.52 a share expected by Refinitive’s consensus estimates
  • Revenue:  $14.1 billion, vs. $13.9 billion expected

Boeing was also expected to report negative free cash flow of $5.4 billion, slightly less than the previous quarter’s negative $5.6 billion, according to FactSet.

The pandemic’s impact on air travel demand, which is still not back to half of last year’s levels, has worsened Boeing’s crisis stemming from two fatal crashes of the 737 Max. Regulators are at the tail-end of the planes’ review but have still not signed off on them, preventing Boeing from delivering them to customers and crimping its cash flow as a result.

Boeing executives will detail their results on a 10:30 a.m. ET call.
