    Boeing Co said on Friday it would not make the planned first delivery of its 747-8 Freighter to Cargolux on Monday, citing "unresolved issues" with the airline.

    The plane maker, which had planned three days of celebrations to mark the long-awaited first delivery, did not disclose the problem and referred questions to the customer.
    While Boeing declined to identify the source of the friction with Cargolux over the 747-8, aviation experts suspected the dispute was over performance guarantees related to fuel consumption of the General Electric engines.
