Boeing doesn't expect to fly the 777X before 2020

Chicago, Illinois - The first flight of the Boeing 777X is delayed until early 2020 due to a technical problem with the GE9X engines that will power the aircraft. Boeing announced the delay during the presentation of its quarterly results today, July 24. The company was initially planning to carry out the first flight of its new widebody jet in June.

Boeing need to quit this monopoly of General Electric propulsion, and return to the past where we regularly saw 3 engine manufacturers supplying the aircraft.

I am surprised the Board of Directors are pussyfooting around the problems. Not good for a public company...

Lets GE weed through all the engine problems and continue to build bullet-proof powerplants. Give them time.
Just another bird strike for Boeing.

Not much of an article, blurb on the engine then talks about the 737 Max. Waste of article space.
