SEATTLE (Reuters) - Spirit AeroSystems Holdings Inc (SPR.N), a major jet parts maker struggling in the face of the ongoing Boeing Co (BA.N) 737 MAX grounding and COVID-19 pandemic, is extending furloughs for hundreds of 737 workers through August 14, the company said on Friday.

Workers were due to return to work on July 6 after a 21-day furlough, but Spirit extended the leave after Boeing told Spirit not to deliver any more fuselages through all of July, Reuters reported.
