BOEING TO TRIM 737 PRODUCTION IN LATE 1992; 757 INCREASE ON SCHEDULE
 SEATTLE, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Responding to changing market conditions, The Boeing Co.'s (NYSE: BA) Renton Division will trim the production rate of the Boeing 737 from 21 aircraft a month to 17 a month, beginning in the fourth quarter of 1992. An increase in the production rate of the 757, also built in Renton, from seven aircraft a month to 8.5 a month, remains on schedule for January 1992.
 "Just as we increased our 737 rates incrementally over the past few years to accommodate our customers' record orders, we are making an incremental reduction to reflect their changing delivery requirements," said Ron Woodard, general manager of the Renton Division.
 The short- to medium-range 737 is the best-selling aircraft in commercial aviation history, with total program orders to date of 2,939.
