Dream on hold: Qantas cancels Boeing order

Qantas has deferred delivery of 15 B787-8 aircraft by four years and cancelled 15 B787-9s due for delivery in 2014/2015.

According to Travel Today, the move was agreed with Boeing “by mutual consent”.

Chief executive Alan Joyce said the move was in response to current trading conditions and had nothing to do with any design issues or delays to the aircraft’s first flight.
