AIR INDIA TO CLAIM FROM BOEING FOR 787 DELAYS

Air India is to send a $840 million compensation claim to Boeing for the delay in delivery of its 787s. The compensation package would be a mix of discounts and cash. “The package is being finalised… the compensation is a mix of different services discount and money,” Air India chief operating officer, Captain Gustav Baldauf, said. Earlier, Air India chairman and managing director Arvind Jadhav confirmed that the airline had sought $840 million from Boeing for the delay. Air India had ordered 27 787s. Air India had placed orders for 111 aircraft at an investment of over $13 billion with Airbus and Boeing in 2006 to replace its ageing fleet and leased planes. Under the original order the 787s should have been delivered in September 2008.

This latest claim is on top of the $145 million that Boeing agreed to pay last year.
