Qatar Airways in talks to buy 15 A330s

Akbar al Baker, the chief executive of Qatar Airways, has said the Doha-based carrier is in talks with Airbus to buy up to 15 of the European planemaker's A330 passenger jets, a deal potentially worth $3.6bn at list prices, citing production delays to Boeing's 787 Dreamliner aircraft, Reuters has reported. "We are talking to Airbus about A330s to fill in the gap that the Dreamliner delays have caused Qatar Airways ... Anywhere between 10 and 15 (aircraft)," al Baker told the news service.
