@Airbus Congratulations @BoeingAirplanes on the maiden flight of the #777X – a great achievement!.
@David_Slotnick Oman Air plans to start US service in late-2021 or 2022.
@e_russell “It was awesome. We would still be flying if we could be,” a pilot on the Boeing 777X after the jet’s maiden sortie today. @zlwichter.
@lesliejosephs Boeing’s 777X, the world’s largest twin-engine jet, completes maiden flight successfully. @Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Stan Deal said it shows the world “we know what we’re doing,” can design safe airplanes and “instill trust in the public.”
@lesliejosephs Southwest says might cut some longer non-stops and replace them with connecting flights because of Max-grounding capacity constraints.
