Air India asks Boeing to pay up about $1 bln for Dreamliner delays
New Delhi, Feb.10 (ANI): Air India has increased its demands for compensation from Boeing to about one billion USD for delays in delivering new 787 Dreamliners.
A civil aviation ministry official, speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald on condition of anonymity, said that there's room to negotiate until all 27 Dreamliners on order have been handed over to the national carrier.
Boeing, based in Chicago, declined to comment.
Air India had said in August 2010 that it would seek 840 million USD from Boeing, whose new 787 hadn't yet entered service at that point.
The carrier's order would be valued at about 5.7 billion USD, before traditional discounts off the plane's average list price of 211 million USD.
The Dreamliner was three-and-a-half years late when it began passenger service in November, after seven delays related to new materials and manufacturing processes used.
Boeing has said it's still in negotiations with customers over the delays, which forced some airlines to revise route plans or order other models to fill the delivery gap.(ANI)
