Boeing, Airbus parent, Embraer down on swine flu concerns, B/E Aerospace keeps falling - SHARE WRAP


Shares in major global aviation suppliers eased again yesterday over concerns about the spread of swine flu. Boeing fell 1.6%, Airbus parent EADS eased 2.2% and Brazilian aircraft manufacturer, Embraer, fell 3.3%. B/E Aerospace slumped a further 4.4% after yesterday's massive 23% fall, as it cautioned of a "further downdraft" in its major markets and predicted additional cuts to aircraft delivery rates by manufacturers in 2010.
