Boeing is basking in what is not very great or impressive news: its new and huge plane, the 777-9X, flew successfully for four hours on Saturday, January 25, after taking off from Paine Field in Everett.
But there was such timidity in this maiden flight. A little wind spooked the pilots. They did not want to take off except under the most acceptable conditions ("the manufacturer wants optimum conditions"). A failure could not happen no matter what. There are over 300 hundred orders for this plane, which costs a little more than $400 million.
Sure, it's not as popping in sales as the 737 Max, but the company was very desperate for good news of any kind, as it has received absolutely none since that crash in the Horn of Africa.
But what's not being stated at this moment is this: What is management still doing in Chicago?
Clearly the 2001 headquarter move from Seattle did not work out. It has indeed brought the company down...
