Correct. Other airlines haven't had the issue.
I noted the parts that were engine related. There were electrical distribution part in short supply for six months. NOTHING gives AI
an excuse for the length of their grounding.
Standard industry guarantees reimburse for the parts and the guarantee labor (usually prorated on part expected life). First the airline must buy the parts, replace the parts, file a guarantee claim, then receive their money 30 days after the parts are received by Boeing. If dispatch reliability is below promise (it was), then Boeing pays the contract specific penalty. Usually in the form of credits for future parts and in some cases aircraft purchases.
No other airline had these level of issues. There were no multi-month part delays with any other operator. Yes, ANA and JL
refused deliveries of "terrible teens.". AI
has taken a reliability issue and multiplied the consequences.
Boeing cannot help that AI
's maintenance processes are that out of line with global standards.
I bet the dispatch reliability of 787s is now above industry standards if AI
and maybe one other problem child were excluded.
And forfeit GoI defense contracts?
. Boeing probably wouldn't sell on credit due to AI
's cash flow issues, but if AI
could pay, they would have the parts.
There was never such a shortage of parts to keep any other plane down more than a day or two. You cannot have 99.7% dispatch reliability if parts still have that level of issues.
could only buy parts ExIM, they are in deep trouble. ExIm is for the planes, *not* the maintenance/parts.
obviously shorted the spares budget. That is bad planning. Only Norwegian could blame Boeing as there was a two week period even the one Goldcare customer had to wait for fuel pumps. But two weeks multiplied into several aircraft flying years missed?
is the airline equivalent of a whiplash victim. Yes they were hurt and deserve some compensation, but this is trying to blame others.
had 777s parted too! There has NEVER been a parts shortage on that type. Someone has to explain that to me.
There was a time fuel pumps, generators, and power distribution parts were air-freighted daily and aircraft lost a day here and there of flight time. But that time ended years ago and after a few weeks of hell, it was just Boeing absorbing the express postage.
Then again, AI
was at the cash flow point they couldn't forward the postage with a month lead time...
