AZAL hesitates on Boeing Dreamliner purchase

23 May 2014 [08:30] - TODAY.AZ
Azerbaijan Airlines CJSC (AZAL) may refuse to get two Boeing-787 Dreamliner aircraft, a source in the company told Trend on May 21.

AZAL had previously ordered two Boeing-787 Dreamliner aircraft from Boeing.

Earlier, it was expected that AZAL will receive the first Dreamliner in June or July 2014, and the second one in November.

"Currently, the question is whether to get the planes or to refuse to do so," the source said, adding that the issue will be solved in a short time.

The source in AZAL also said the company's doubts regarding receiving the Boeing-787 Dreamliner are associated with a number of problems faced by some countries' airlines using this aircraft.

Currently AZAL's fleet includes such aircraft as Boeing 757-200, Boeing 767-300, Airbus 319, Airbus A320, Airbus A340-500, Embraer ERJ 170-100LR and Embraer ERJ 190-100.
