GE provided some of the coverage for the World Trade Center and the jets lost in the attack. It expects $600 million in pretax losses.
Hard-hit airlines may miss payments or return planes. GE expects no hit to profits this year but $120 million less in 2002.
Boeing pared expected deliveries through 2003 by 40%. That may cut $100 million from operating profits now and $200 million in 2002.
NBC, like other networks, ran several days of ad-free coverage. That is expected to sap $50 million from earnings this year.
