Seems there is an issue with Qatar’s third 787. The plane just handed over to them on December 9 was forced to make an emergency landing at Heathrow after it developed a faulty generator. This follows a United 787 having a generator failure on Dec. 4 forcing a landing at New Orleans. Boeing is quoted as saying that it isn’t certain that it was an identical issue with a faulty generator.
Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Air CEO was quoted as saying , “Definitely we will demand compensation. We are not buying airplanes from them to put in a museum.” The airline has already been angered by the delays in delivery of the 787.
