Qatar Airways Confirms Change To Airbus Plane Order
DOHA, Jan 5, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 05th Jan, 2017 ) - Qatar Airways has renegotiated an order with Airbus to take delivery only of larger A321 planes, not A320s as originally planned, the Gulf carrier's chief executive said on Thursday.
The switch to the different aircraft comes after the airline refused to accept four A320neos last year over issues with their engines. "We are going to take all A321s, there will be no more A320s," Baker told reporters at a press event in Doha. The original order with Airbus was for up to 80 planes.
