Emirates Says it Will Refuse 777x Jets if Boeing Won’t Meet Commitments

24 May 2021

    The head of Emirates airline, one of Boeing's largest customers, has warned the company that it would refuse delivery of 777x jets if they fall short of contractual performance commitments.


    President Tim Clark said he had not received any performance details of the jet's engines so far, even though test flights began in 2020. Emirates has raised concerns that Boeing had a history of over-promising on performance of new jets, including the in-service 737 MAX and 787 Dreamliner.


    "We will not accept an aeroplane unless it is performing 100% to contract. Unless it is doing what they said it would do and contracted, we will not take that aeroplane”, Clark commented.


    Emirates, who was supposed to receive its first last July, doubts it will start receiving the jets until 2024 though Boeing had told them it would come in end of 2023. "There are issues on that airplane. I'm not altogether clear as to when we're going to get them”.
