Qatar makes Boe­ing deal

7 Days in Dubai - - BUSINESS -

Qatar Air­ways plans to buy 40 new long-range air­craft from Boe­ing Co, with a com­bined list price of $11.7 bil­lion. Air­lines typ­i­cally get a dis­count, es­pe­cially with larger or­ders. The grow­ing Qatar char­ac­ter is or­der­ing 30 of Boe­ing’s new 787-9 Dream­lin­ers and 10 of its wide­body 777-300ERs. Qatar also signed a let­ter of in­tent to buy up to 60 of Boe­ing’s 737 MAX 8s, the new ver­sion of its best-sell­ing short- and midrange jet. The list price is $6.9 bil­lion. Qatar re­cently walked away from four Air­bus A320­neo de­liv­er­ies due to de­lays.
