OMAN AIR TO SEEK COMPENSATION FOR 787 DELAYS

Peter Hill, CEO of Oman Air has indicated he wants compensation from Boeing for delays in delivering its 787 aircraft. The airline ordered six aircraft through Kuwait-based leasing firm Alafco and was expecting its first 787 next year but it will not now be delivered until the beginning of 2015.

Hill told Reuters: “Any compensation payable by Boeing for late deliveries would initially go through the leasing company, and then in some shape or form come back to the operating company, which is us. But we will expect significant compensation.”

“I’m sure there are a lot more compensation claims from airlines who are ahead of us in the queue,” he said and added he no immediate plans to cancel any orders with Boeing.
