Core earnings, which exclude some pension and other costs, were a loss of 44 cents per share, compared with earnings of $1.62 per share a year earlier.

The net loss in the latest quarter reflects $3.23 per share impact related to previously announced 787 cost reclassification and 747 and tanker charges, the company said on Wednesday.

Revenue rose about a percent to $24.8 billion.
