Boeing is handed a head start

Posted by J VanDomelen

J VanDomelen Airbus delayed the availability of the A350-1000, intended to compete with The Boeing Company’s enhanced 777 twinjet; yet, customers continue to cancel early orders for the upcoming Airbus wide-body jet. This delay is giving Boeing the chance it needs to push its 777 successor (being called the Boeing 777X) forward, while utilizing all the lessons learned from its infamously delayed 787 Dreamliner. … Read More

J VanDomelen In a previous life, I was a DJ and the lasers were one of my favorite parts of the nightclub (aside from the music).
