LONDON (Reuters) - GE Aviation sees no need for further increases in planned jetliner production, the aero-engine maker's chief executive David Joyce said at the Farnborough Airshow on Monday.

"I see no need for further increases in production," he said.

Planemakers Airbus AIR.PA and Boeing BA.N are both planning to raise output to cope with record order backlogs.

However, some analysts think demand for new planes could weaken amid a faltering global economy.
