Vietnam Airlines CEO Duong Tri Thanh, speaking on CAPA TV, stated (04-Jun-2018) the airline's first A321neo delivery was delayed until at least Dec-2018. Vietnam Airlines has 20 A321neos on order and was originally planning to take 10 aircraft in 2018 and 10 in 2019. "With the leased order for 20 A321neos is there the delivery is rescheduled time and again due to the engine delay", Mr Thanh said. "Now we are talking about the first delivery instead of first quarter this year into the very last month of 2018 or even into 2019. So it's almost a one year delay".
