Boeing gana pedido de Qatar Air, asestando un golpe a Airbus

By Jordi Bou

February 1, 2022 - Qatar Airways planea adquirir 34 cargueros 777X y 25 aviones 737 Max de Boeing, lo que constituye un golpe para la fabricante de aviones rival iAirbus, que está en una amarga disputa con la aerolínea basada en Doha por supuestos problemas con recubrimientos de superficie de su avión A350.

The deal, signed at the White House during a visit to Washington by Qatar's ruling emir, widened the fallout from a dispute between Qatar Airways and Airbus .

The European planemakerearlier this month revoked a contract with Qatar Airways for 50 competing A321neo jets as part of a spiraling dispute that began with disagreements over the severity of flaws on long-haul A350 jets.

Qatar is an important Arab partner for Washington. Home to the U.S.’s largest military base in the Middle East, it played a crucial role in the U.S.’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan last year.

In recent weeks, Washington has held discussions with Doha about whether it could help supply gas to Europe if a Russian invasion of Ukraine disrupts energy supplies to the continent.
