'Terrible. I'm so disappointed in Boeing for allowing this to happen. They better get their s**t together and make sure this doesn't happen again!
To be fair, given the ambition of the programme in many ways, 6 months (to me) doesn't seem that surprising. I'll still call it a major achievement if they stick to this delay.

And it is now official - Boeing and Airbus both suck
Now we can debate which sucks the most
Hopefully the chinese whispers can stop now.

What a sad moment for Boeing
FWIW I don't think this is nearly as sad for Boeing as the A380 wiring delay (and its cause) was for Airbus, or nearly as damaging.
Hopefully, getting the "real" programme out in the open will allow the teams to focus on the right priorities, in the right order, without excessive "work-arounds" having to be applied.
