Will Air India Defer Boeing 787 Deliveries?

Air India is thought to be ready to refuse delivery of it's new 787's because they are unhappy with the compensation being offered to them by Boeing for the delivery delays.

Air India wants compensation totalling up to $1 Billion for the delays, something Boeing is baulking at. Two years ago, Air India informed its parliament that it wanted $710 Million for the delays, Boeing was offering just $145 Million.

If the two sides cannot agree, and they don't seem close to doing so any time soon, Air India is likely to defer or even cancel it's 787 deliveries - the first of which is due next month.
