Mitsubishi jet delivery pushed back again

The first MRJ test aircraft, seen here taking off in Japan, has arrived in the U.S.

NAGOYA -- Initial delivery of Mitsubishi Aircraft's regional passenger plane will be postponed beyond the current target of mid-2018 owing to design changes, it was learned Friday.

The unit of Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has notified partners of the delay. The first Mitsubishi Regional Jet is now likely to be handed off to buyer ANA Holdings in 2019 or later.
