Qatar Airways will not be B787-10X launch customer

Qatar Airways has said it will not be a launch customer for Boeing's next passenger aircraft, a stretched version of its 787 Dreamliner, Reuters has reported. "We like launching aircraft but not every aircraft. We are not a supermarket," the Doha-based carrier's chief executive, Akbar al Baker told the news service. Boeing is expected to announce a formal launch of the aircraft as early as the June 17-23 Paris Airshow, though the timing remains uncertain and Boeing officials have cautioned the launch could be in coming months.
