The plan? What plan? When did Boeing state that their plan was to deliver in 2024?? Maybe now, but never before. Original so called plan was 2019...slipped to 2020.

We'll see what actually is the delivery of the 1st 779. Let's hope it's not a repeat of the 787 fiasco. FFS!!

Are there any published definitively increase on the 787 capibility? Would seem a quite easy enhancement to do, in that no huge investment is required. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Are there constraints or limitations that prevent these being made, or are they dependent on engine PIPs only??
