SEATTLE (AP) _ Boeing Co. delivered 489 commercial jets to customers in 2000, the company announced Tuesday.

Deliveries included 130 jetliners in the fourth quarter. In 1999, Boeing delivered a record 620 planes, including 165 in the fourth quarter.

Boeing forecast a year ago that it would deliver about 490 planes in 2000, reflecting lower demand for new airplanes since the most recent airline industry boom cycle. Boeing expects to deliver 530 planes in 2001 and the same number in 2002.

A 40-day strike by engineers and technical workers in early 2000 caused Boeing to deliver 75 planes in its first quarter, 50 fewer than planned. However, it was back on track by midyear, having delivered 242 aircraft by the end of June.

The 2000 deliveries included 32 717s, 281 737s, 25 747s, 45 757s, 44 767s, 55 777s, 3 MD-90s and 4 MD-11s.
