Japan Disaster Could Disrupt Boeing Aircraft Production In 'Several Weeks'

KIROTV.COMBoeing aircraft production could be affected in "several weeks" if the supply of parts from key Japanese manufacturers is disrupted, the head of Boeing's commercial airlines unit said on Monday.

Jim Albaugh told CNBC that "We have a little bit of stock, but not much," and that Boeing "will have issues" if the disruption lasts "several weeks. "At the main manufacturing facility south of Tokyo in Nagoya, work on production lines was stopped for a short time after the quake, said KIRO 7 Eyewitness News anchor Chris Egert, reporting from Tokyo.

Mitsubishi, the 787 wing maker, had to evacuate its buildings. But work quickly started back up, he said. Parts of several Boeing aircraft are made in Japan: 16 percent of the 767, 21 percent of the 777 and 35 percent of the 787. All 200 of Boeing's workers in Japan are fine, officials told Egert.

Thirty of the company's workers are from Western Washington.Egert said there's been an eerie feeling in Tokyo as uncertainty about nuclear power plants to the north and the strong possibility of another major quake weighs on people there.

On a normal Monday at noon, the area outside Boeing's offices in Tokyo would be packed with people, but many workers were told to stay home because of power outages and transportation problems.
