SEATTLEBoeing continues to suffer the lack of demand for its Dreamliner family jets. The aircraft generated zero deliveries in December for the second month in a row.



The American planemaker recorded 107 order cancelations last month. They included 105 737 MAXs and two Dreamliners jets. Boeing lost 641 orders for its 737 MAX series jets last year. The manufacturer delivered just 53 Dreamliners in 2020, down two-thirds from 158 in 2019. Boeing had 184 orders for all of last year, including 130 for the MAX.

Last week, Boeing agreed to pay $2.5 billion to the Justice Department to settle fraud and conspiracy charges linked to the MAX. Prior to its grounding, two MAX jets crashed, killing 346 people. The crashes involved flight control issues for the plane. Boeing said it already set aside $1.77 billion for costs related to settlement and will use that money to compensate its customers for the losses resulting from the MAX's grounding.

The MAX was cleared to fly in November by U.S. regulators after being grounded since March 2019.
