The golf company urges the manufacturer to finally provide reliable information on the 777X. We don’t currently know the exact delivery date or if version 777-8 will ever be built.
“We really need to have a conversation with the grown-ups now,” says Tim Clark. The Emirates president is finally asking Boeing to answer his question about the exact delivery date of the 777X. His airline has been planning to develop the fleet for more than 15 years. Therefore, it is very important that you acquire any aircraft.
So far, Boeing has given him no answer. “We need to know when the Boeing 777X will arrive,” Clark said Tuesday (October 5) on the sidelines of IATA’s annual meeting in Boston. In the lead up to the introduction of a new aircraft, several million must be invested, for example in the construction of a warehouse for spare parts, the purchase of simulators or furniture. This is why security planning is so important.
“I don’t even know if a Boeing 777-8 will ever be built.”
Clark now needs accurate and reliable information. “It is no longer enough to say that it will be the end of this year or the beginning of that year,” said the dean of the Emirates. Perhaps it is no longer enough. “I don’t even know if a Boeing 777-8 will be built. And that’s what I ordered,” the UAE president said.
Emirates has ordered a total of 115 Boeing 777Xs. 80 of these belong to the larger 777-9 and 35 to the smaller 777-8. Boeing is more than three years behind schedule with the plane. currently The aircraft manufacturer spoke about the first delivery date “the end of 2023”. In addition to Emirates, Lufthansa is the first customer of the new long-haul aircraft.
