Qatar Airways in row with Boeing over Dreamliner cabin quality
- Qatar: Tuesday, September 18 - 2012 at 15:49
Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker has revealed that the carrier is in a spat with Boeing over the quality of the cabins in its new 787 Dreamliner. "We have a steady stream of 777 deliveries, but we have a problem with the 787. The problem is both technical and..(with) the quality of the cabin. Qatar Airways is very meticulous about our cabins and we will not take a cabin even if there is just a scratch. So we have a huge pissing match with Boeing to deliver cabins," he told AMEInfo's Phil Blizard.
Al Baker also dismissed media reports that his airline is in talks with British Airways about a possible joint venture.
