Boeing schedules first 777X flight for 23 JanuaryBoeing has scheduled the 777X’s maiden sortie for 23 January, an event that will finally kick off the revamped widebody’s delayed flight-test programme and potentially keep the airframer on track to begin deliveries in early 2021. Under the manufacturer’s current schedule, the 777-9 test aircraft should depart at around 10:00 Seattle time on the 23rd, although Boeing cautions that the timing “could change due to weather and other factors”.

Wish them the best... I am Airbus/Boeing fan (yes you can have the best of both worlds) and it's time for Boeing to clean the dirt, move on, and give us an upgraded amazing flying machine :D
Been hearing good things so far about the new CEO and his more firm approach to restoring order to Boeing. Hoping for a great flight tomorrow.
Just read on Twitter that they are going to postpone the test flight due to weather. They are considering the following day as an alternative.
I am so tired of people basking in Boeings problems; I hope for Boeing a flawless first flight and a recovery not predicted by any of the people that just don't understand competition keeps us all honest and is the essence of business........
and this too shall pass. only a matter of time before they're back on track. a lot of people have great faith in the company even with the current black eye. like most disasters, you identify and recognize the problems, correct them and go forward to become even better. onward!
