A dispute between Boeing and Air India has broken out over compensation for 787 Dreamliner delays.
The Indian government claims that Boeing agreed to pay $500 million in compensation to the airline for the delays in delivery of 27 Boeing 787s ordered in 2005. The aircraft manufacturer denies agreeing to the compensation payout.
But Boeing chief executive Jim Albaugh said: “We don’t comment on deals that we’ve done. But I can tell you we’re not writing anybody a cheque for $500m.”
