Boeing has today confirmed that it won’t be delivering the first Boeing 777-9 aircraft until late 2023. The first delivery was initially planned to have taken place last year, however, the program has faced multiple delays along the way.
The first deliveries of the Boeing 777X had been planned to take place in 2020, although this didn’t happen. Last year Boeing confirmed that the aircraft wouldn’t be delivered until 2022.
However, the program has now slipped again until late 2023. Recently Emirates’ President Tim Clark mentioned that his first 777X delivery could slip to 2024.
