OSLO, March 10 Norwegian Air expects
only minor delays, if any at all, in deliveries of four more 787
Dreamliners from Boeing, the company said on Monday.
Last week Boeing said "hairline cracks" had been discovered
in the wings of about 40 of the 787 Dreamliners currently in
Norwegian Air is scheduled to receive the four aircraft in
May and June.
"I don't know if our four planes under construction have
cracks but what we are told is that this could lead to minor
delays in future deliveries," Norwegian Air spokesman Lasse
Sandaker-Nielsen said, adding that the contract delivery times
have some built-in flexibility.
"So we don't expect any big delays, if any at all,"
Norwegian Air has three Dreamliners in operation. In
addition to the four planes it expects to receive in the first
half 2014, the company has another seven on order for delivery
from 2015 to 2018.
