تم الإرسال
 
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.
This meant that despite one MFR having a setback, the other 2 will continue to be delivered on time.
I don't know what benefit this is to Boeing, placing all their eggs in one basket, and quite often GE have dropped broken the eggs!

Top managers manage the entire company. They ultimately are where the buck stops or the ax falls. As an American, I hate to see Boeing in the difficulties it is in and those coming down the line...
But, the responsibility for EVERYTHING that has gone wrong or been revealed in recent months resides with Boeing's top management.
I am surprised the Board of Directors are pussyfooting around the problems. Not good for a public company...

As customers, Boeing management gets to choose where to buy. Limiting those choices as a matter of policy appears not to have worked out for them.

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.
