New Delhi: Boeing Co. is liable to compensate Air India for the grounding of 787 Dreamliner passenger jets on safety issues, civil aviation minister Ajit Singh told reporters on Friday.
The lightweight, mainly carbon-composite aircraft has been plagued by mishaps, raising concerns over its use of lithium-ion batteries and forcing many airlines across the globe to ground them.
Poland’s state-controlled LOT Airlines earlier said it would seek compensation from Boeing for grounding its two planes.
