Boeing’s troubles extend beyond its grounded 737 MAX fleet—with its newest jet, the 777X widebody, delayed due to recurring engine problems.
The 777X is powered by the massive GE9X engine, the biggest aircraft turbine ever built. But the engine has had nagging problems throughout its development and testing. GE claims that the engine’s problems have been solved—but the extensive testing needed to have it certified won’t be completed until later this year.
