Qatar Airways CEO confident that Boeing's 787 will fly soon
CHICAGO (Reuters) - Qatar Airways Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said on Thursday he was confident that Boeing's (BA.N: Quote) 787 Dreamliner would be cleared to fly and carry passengers again soon, but he couldn't predict when that would be.
The airline suffered a serious impact and will seek compensation from Boeing for the Dreamliner being grounded worldwide after batteries overheated on two jets in January, Al Baker said at a press conference.
