Boeing Postpones The Launch of 777X after Sunday’s crash

Boeing has delayed plans to unveil its huge new 777X jetliner after the Ethiopia plane crash.

China and Ethiopia have further ordered for the suspension of commercial operations of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 after the tragic crash which claimed 157 lives.

The grounding of the planes will highly assist in probing the cause of the crash, this being just less than five months after another 737 MAX 8 went down off the coast of Indonesia in late October, killing 189 people.

The Indonesia crash by Lion Air Boeing 737 Max happened a few minutes shortly after take-off from Jakarta, Indonesia. The airplane is said to have been less than three months old.

Similarly, the Ethiopian Airlines flight ET302 first flew in October 2018, and went down a few minutes after taking off.

The new Boeing 777X which was to be unveiled this week had a capacity to carry as many as 425 passengers, making it the largest twin-engine jet to be in existence.

Generally, Boeing saw the sales for Boeing 737 Max skyrocket since its launch with more than 4,500 Boeing’s having been ordered by 100 different operators globally.
