Re: no retina?
An ARM-based MacBook Air sounds like a plausible reason. That transition has been speculated about for some time.

Re: no retina?
I've wondered too. Rumors say the delay involves Intel's delayed Broadwell chips, though a few have resurrected long-running speculation that the MacBook won't use an Intel processor at all and will instead use some kind of custom A-series chip. I'd be surprised if an ARM Macbook appears this week, but whatever the delay, we've been hearing chatter about this ultra-thin, Retina-level model for quite a while now.

no retina?
I wonder what the delay on the MacBook Air Retina is. Seems to me the display availability shouldn't be an issue since it's smaller than the MacBook Pro and the iMac. Is the manufacturing that problematic?
