Boeing halted production of its 737 MAX for about 10 days in May due to supply chain problems, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday, citing people familiar with the matter.

Delivery delays for the new narrow-body aircraft have frustrated airlines seeking to capitalize on growing demand for air travel, and hampered the manufacturer’s efforts to generate cash.

Last month, Boeing CFO Brian West said 737 MAX production and deliveries were affected by a shortage of a particular wiring connector.

Resuming deliveries of 787 Dreamliners and clearing 737 Max inventories are vital to Boeing’s ability to emerge from the pandemic-driven crises and aircraft safety, a task complicated by supply chain bottlenecks and the war in Ukraine.
