And another airline getting frustrated by aircraft production delays... 

Quote:
Aeroflot, Russia's largest airline will impose penalties on Russian producer Sukhoi Civil Aircraft for failure to deliver Sukhoi Superjet-100 short-range alriners on schedule, Aeroflot Deputy General Director Finance and Investment Shamil Kurmashev said on Wednesday.

Kurmashev also threatened a $100 million penalty to Boeing, which has postponed delivery of 22 Boeing-787 Dreamliner passenger aircraft from 2014 to 2016. Two aircraft may be delivered before the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. "Of course, we will impose (the fine)," he said.

Does anybody know what penalty will be imposed on Sukhoi?

Why does Kurmashev threaten Boeing to pay the $100 mln? Isn't it just straightforward that when you fail to deliver in time you are going to pay the fine?

It's leverage to sweeten this deal (or any other deal) by a tangible or intangible value in excess of 100MM.
