From the article
“Qatar Airways is also demanding that the court prohibit Airbus from delivering A350s until the defects have been rectified, according to the Reuters report.”
Did the Reuters report actually say that ?
We to remember that the contract this falls under (A350 purchase contract) QR is in default for not making payment or taking delivery of aircraft it committed to.
I don’t see this ending well for QR, it has been reported earlier that Airbus has offered fixes, however QR has refused to let Airbus do them.
Typically this is called hindrance, if you have defects with a building, and the builder offers to fix them however you lock them out, courts will side with the builder.
If you have a building that has damage that needs repair, that is not a valid reason for not completing the settlement on another new building one had committed to.
The numbers QR are presenting are obscene because they know they have significant damages owing to Airbus for failure to pay and take delivery of other new aircraft under the contract.
