Boeing delays 777X first flight again due to bad weather

Boeing has postponed again the first flight of its 777X long-haul jetliner that was scheduled to take place on Friday (January 23) due to inclement weather.

Boeing will attempt the maiden flight, which was also canceled on Thursday, again on Saturday morning, weather permitting. 

The company has previously said the 777X, its largest-ever twin-engined model, desystem.scripts.signed to hold on average 406 people, was on track to be delivered in 2021. It was originally due to be delivered in mid-2020. 

The delay in the first flight of the large wide-body jet comes amid the grounding of the company’s 737 MAX. The crisis surrounding the smaller jet following two fatal crashes has led new Chief Executive Officer Dave Calhoun to send the aerospace giant back to the drawing board on proposals for a new mid-market aircraft.
