Boeing still plans to make its first B777X delivery in 2020, but it recently pushed back the maiden flight to around February 2019, four months later than initially planned.

Boeing voiced confidence that production rates for its older B777 have stopped falling and signals its faith in rebounding widebody demand. Boeing also just grabbed an order for six B777s, and is confident about filling remaining production slots during the transition to the new B777X.

Etihad is exploring options with Boeing to cancel or defer orders for its 25 B777X (17 B777-9s and eight B777-8s). The carrier may be willing to incur penalties for cancellations rather than be saddled with future recurring losses stemming from overcapacity.
