Boeing has halted deliveries of Boeing 737 Max in response to the global grounding of the aircraft, the company says.
"Boeing has paused delivery of 737 Max airplanes due to the temporary grounding," says Boeing in a statement. "We continue to build 737 Max airplanes, while assessing how the situation, including potential capacity constraints, will impact our production system."
"There has been no change in production rate at this time, but we continue to work through production decisions," Boeing adds.
The move comes in a year Boeing had hoped to boost 737 production from 52 to 57 aircraft monthly.
