Small but still meaningful order for both programs

Cheap end of line 773ERs would backfill this nicely and allow 787s to be redeployed.
Freight is another story altogether. They must need the capacity.

So basically it's confirming the two frames QR Cargo are already about to receive. Not another two on top of that.

Qatar’s Akbar Al Baker said the blockade had increased QR Cargo ops by 160% vs. 2016, carrying fresh food, medical supplies & equipment.

Can someone clarify if QR has actually confirmed those 787-9s. My understanding is that they were options that were never excersized.

Boeing closed the gap by lowering production rate to 3.5 aircraft per month.
