Table: How Boeing Could Benefit

-- With orders weak, a halt in production would preserve its contractual backlog

-- The company could pursue its labor-cost-cutting strategy, do more outsourcing, and buy from low-cost suppliers

-- By limiting supply, Boeing could maintain pricing on new and used aircraft

-- A hiatus would shore up the balance sheet, allowing Boeing to emerge from the strike in stronger financial shape
