Fewer aircraft

AIRCRAFT MAKER Boeing said the Asian economic crisis will result in about 150 fewer aircraft orders for all manufacturers over the next five years. In its "Current Market Outlook" the Seattle company forecast that small aircraft - those with a single aisle - will account for seven of 10 delivered over the next two decades. "This was the basis for our decision not to build an airplane larger than today's 747," Boeing said.
