Air India To Hold Meeting With Boeing Over Dreamliner Glitches

Faced with frequent grounding of its "game changer" Dreamliner Boeing 787-800 aircraft due to glitches, national carrier Air India is likely to hold a meeting with Boeing officials in New Delhi next week to discuss the issue.   The meeting also comes in the backdrop of airline engineers' body urging the former chairman and managing director Rohit Nandan, in a letter two months ago to defer further delivery of the Dreamliner as long as the US aircraft major does not resolve its reliability issues.   "The new chairman and managing director Ashwani Lohani has called a meeting with Boeing officials next week to discuss the Dreamliner issue. Many Dreamliner flights been affected due to the frequent snags in these planes and he feels that the issue needs to be addressed at the earliest" sources told PTI.   The date for the meeting is expected to finalised in the next couple of days.
