QANTAS SUES ROLLS-ROYCE FOR DAMAGES AND LOSS OF BUSINESS

After filing a claim in the Federal Court of Australia yesterday, Qantas has now confirmed it is claiming damages from engine maker Rolls-Royce over faulty Airbus A380 engines and loss of business.

The claim says that Rolls-Royce was in breach of duty and may have misled the airline when it supplied engines that were defective and could not perform according the standards guaranteed by Airbus and Rolls-Royce.

The amount of the loss was not declared but estimates caused by grounding of its fleet, reduced capacity over the summer travel season and reputational damage sets the cost at around $60 million.
