This is good news for Boeing, who has suffered recently due to the 737 Max twin crashes.
On Saturday, the new Boeing 777X took flight heading to Paine Field north of Seattle.
High wind forced Boeing to again delay the inaugural flight of its long-haul 777X aircraft on Friday.
"With new breakthroughs in aerodynamics and engines, the 777X will deliver 10 percent lower fuel use and emissions and 10 percent lower operating costs than the competition", says the plane's Boeing page.
"We took the time to get the airplane ready for flight test so I think we are going to march through flight tests successfully and quickly and get it certified to the FAA standards".
Boeing is facing tough business conditions as the grounding of its 737 MAX aircraft continues following two fatal crashes.
Major airlines including Emirates, Lufthansa, Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines and Qatar Airways have placed some 340 orders for the 777X.
The first deliveries of the new model, with maximum capacities of 384 to 426 passengers depending on the configuration, are not expected before early 2021, instead of mid-2020 as initially planned.
This aircraft encountered significant problems during pressurization tests in September.
USA aerospace giant Boeing successfully completed the maiden flight of its twin-engined 777X jetliner, the company said on Saturday. Federal Aviation Administrator Steve Dickson called senior United States airline officials on Friday and told them the agency could approve the grounded Boeing 737 MAX's return to service before mid-year - a faster time frame than the planemaker suggested this week, people briefed on the calls said. On Tuesday, Boeing announced that it did not expect to win regulatory approval until mid-2020.
Boeing suspended production of the MAX this month but Chief Executive David Calhoun said this week the company plans to begin ramping up production of the model in anticipation of winning regulatory approval to restart service.
Calhoun aims to turn the company around, and has highlighted restoring Boeing's reputation with regulators, customers and other stakeholders as an imperative.
The 777X is set to replace larger, ageing aircraft such as the 747 and Airbus A380, as well as older previous-generation 777-300ER. It is the world's largest and most powerful commercial aircraft engine and incorporates GE's most advanced technologies, developed over the last decade, to make it the most fuel-efficient engine in its class. With a spacious, wide cabin, new custom architecture and innovations from the 787 Dreamliner, the 777X will deliver the flight experience of the future. They serve to cut the aircraft's giant wingspan from 235 feet down to under 213 feet.

It will compete with the Airbus A350-1000 which seats about 360 passengers. The aircraft will seat 350 passengers and offer a range capability of more than 9,300 nautical miles (17,220 km).

There are two variants of the 777X family; the 777-9 is the larger and most popular variant which also carried out the first flight today, while the first 777-8 is still yet to be built.
