Qatar Airways is said to be considering plans to cancel the entirety of its Boeing order owing to repeated 787 delays, according to a Dow Jones report. It has orders for 60 787s including options and 24 777s including freighters and options. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The writing is in the wall for Boeing and they donÃ¢â‚¬™t care. TheyÃ¢â‚¬™re too busy having lunches and dinners,Ã¢â‚¬Â CEO Akbar Al Baker said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Boeing doesnÃ¢â‚¬™t realise how much theyÃ¢â‚¬™re hurting their customersÃ¢â‚¬™ plans. TheyÃ¢â‚¬™re very much mistaken if they think weÃ¢â‚¬™re going to give them much more time on the issue. Then Boeing will be left with a load of parked planes. It may be that we become an exclusive Airbus customer,Ã¢â‚¬Â Al Baker added. Qatar placed a firm order for 24 A320 family aircraft at the ParisAir Show only days earlier.
