Boeing Co said on Wednesday it would cut its 160,000-person workforce by about 10 per cent, further reduce 787 Dreamliner production and try to boost liquidity as it prepares for a years-long industry recovery from the coronavirus pandemic that drove its second consecutive quarterly loss.

“Our industry is going to look very different as a result of this pandemic,” Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun told investors.“We will be a smaller company for a while.”
