Air India confirmed Boeing will pay USD145 million to the carrier as compensation for B787 delays, downgraded from the carrier’s initial claim from USD710 million (Press Trust of India, 16-Mar-2010). Air India parent, the National Aviation Company of India (NACIL) ordered 27 B787s in 2006, with the first initially scheduled for delivery in May-2008. The first B787 is now due to be delivered to the carrier in Apr-2011.

Air India:The deliveries of Dreamliner 787 should have been complete by now. But it got delayed completely and we have slapped a compensation claim of USD710 million. Obviously, they have confirmed $145-million they will pay as compensation for the delay and so we have tried to push the entire delivery,” Arvind Jadhav, Chairman and Managing Director.
