EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The Boeing Co. is planning to lay off about 800 workers in the Puget Sound area by the end of 2013.
    
The company announced Friday it plans to cut another 1,200 to 1,500 jobs through attrition and other means.
    
The Daily Herald (http://is.gd/Ti6u1e ) reports the job cuts will be mostly from the 747 and 787 jet programs in Everett. The company says production rates on those airplanes will not be affected.
    
Boeing has not issued layoff notices yet. The company has contacted the local district of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, which represents most workers who will be laid off.
    
The company also has moved 500 workers to other parts of the company.
