DOHA Jan 5 Qatar Airways is to swap its order
for up to 80 Airbus A320neos for the larger A321
version, the airline's chief executive said on Thursday.
The Doha-based carrier has refused to take delivery of at
least four A320neos since December 2015 over what it claims are
performance issues with the aircraft's engines.
The airline has yet to decide whether it will swap its
engine order for the jets from Pratt & Whitney, a unit of United
Technologies Corp, to CFM, a joint venture between
General Electric Co and Safran SA of France, CEO
Akbar Al Baker told reporters in Doha.
