Intelsat 29e arrived at final location 50.0°W, so the targeted in-service date (tomorroe) still seems correct.

Intelsat press release: Intelsat Reports Intelsat 29e Service Outage | Intelsat
Luxembourg, 10 April 2019 – Intelsat, S.A. (NYSE:I) announced today a service outage on the Intelsat 29e satellite which continues to affect maritime, aeronautical and wireless operator customers in the Latin America, Caribbean and North Atlantic regions.

Late on 7 April, the Intelsat 29e propulsion system experienced damage that caused a leak of the propellant on board the satellite resulting in a service disruption to customers on the satellite. While working to restore the services, on 9 April, the satellite experienced a second anomaly that caused a loss of communications to the satellite. Communication with the satellite has been intermittent. Intelsat continues to work with the satellite’s manufacturer, Boeing, on recovering communication. The Intelsat customer-facing team is focused on migrating customer services from Intelsat 29e to other Intelsat satellites serving the region, as well as third party services.

Intelsat will not make a determination of financial impact until the conclusion of the recovery mission.
The satellite has drifted away already from 50.0°W, with 0.5°E/day, now near 48.7°W.

Intelsat 29e is reported to have had a couple of pieces of "prominent debris" break off and is tumbling



Shes finished - and adrift and out of control on the geostationary arc is a distinct hazard.
