Boeing Co. has reached out to Singapore Airlines Ltd. to discuss the U.S. planemaker’s failure to deliver long-delayed 777X aircraft on time, according to the Chief Executive Officer of the city-state’s flag carrier. 

“When the delay was foreseen you can imagine that Boeing would have reached out to us for early conversations,” Goh Choon Phong said in an interview with Bloomberg at the carrier’s new lounge at Changi Airport Tuesday. “Obviously, we expect Boeing to help us in the interim to make sure that we continue to be able to deploy the right capacity.”
