Boeing 777X takes off in maiden flight, a milestone for company struggling from Max crashes
The maiden flight of the Boeing 777X is a milestone for the company struggling through the fallout from the 737 Max crashes.
. Bad weather postponed attempts at the first flight on Thursday and again on Friday.The first flight, which took off from Everett, Washington, is part of testing that will occur throughout the year as the company works toward winning regulatory approval, which promises to be more stringent after the crashes of the 737 Max. Those planes have been grounded since March after the second of two crashes that together killed 346 people.

The 777X-9 is slightly longer than Boeing's most iconic plane: the hump-backed 747, which is fading away as airlines opt for more twin-engine aircraft that require less fuel.Read more: CNBC »
