Air India 787 claims making local news reports as details leaked

Air India has sought compensation from Boeing for 787s ordered that do not meet the 20% fuel efficiency claims previously advertised, stating that they were in fact just above 17% at best.

“We have already sent a demand notice to Boeing seeking compensation for under-delivery of fuel efficiency as our six 787s on an average gave us only a little over 17% on the fuel efficiency front,” reports one source.

Air India is looking for price reductions on the remaining 21 787s to be delivered by 2016 year end. This is seen by many as being an announcement to compound already noted demands for compensation over the delivery delays on the 787s. Air India is seeking $700m in reparations for delivery delays. Maybe this latest leak/demand is aimed at gaining more traction from Boeing on the issue of 787 reparations, this in turn points to difficult negotiations on the issue at best between the two companies.
