More problems for Qatar Airways…

 

Today a press statement was published where Qatar Airways welcomes the 50 Boeing 777. The world’s longest flight Auckland/AKL – Doha/DOH was specifically mentioned in the press release.

However, Reuters has cited unnamed sources as saying that A350 deliveries have been hindered due to shortages of cabin equipment, and that Qatar Airways has voiced concerns about the reliability of parts and equipment supplied by a specific subcontractor.

During the interview, Al Baker did not say what exactly was causing the delays.
