Qatar: Delivery of A380 delayed

Comment on this story

Delivery of Qatar Airways’s first A380 aircraft has been delayed as Airbus and the airline put the final touches on it, in a setback for the carrier as Doha prepares to host the International Air Transport Association’s annual meeting. “Qatar Airways and Airbus have agreed to some fine-tuning elements on the first A380 to be delivered to Qatar,” Airbus said on Saturday. Qatar is slated to take its first three of the superjumbos in the next weeks. – Bloomberg
