Air India expects to receive a compensation package worth as much as US$1 billion from Boeing for delayed delivery of 787 long-range aircraft on order that could be in the form of a deduction from the total cost of the 27 787s ordered by the national carrier and in discounts on future orders, says a Civil Aviation Ministry official.

While the actual compensation figure has not been publicly disclosed, Aviation Minister Ajit Singh says a package has been worked out with the U.S. manufacturer and accepted by the Air India board.



India now is seeking legal opinion on how to move it forward. A government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, tells Aviation Week the deal is valued up to US$1 billion. The package is now awaiting approval from the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, a panel of ministers.


Boeing officials were unavailable for comment.


The ministry official says the panel will look into the amount the U.S. company will need to pay to Air India and discuss options, such as arbitration and where to take this arbitration in case Boeing refuses to pay.


Air India expects to receive the first 787 this month. The first international flight will be in August between Mumbai and London, and flights to Australia will follow in September, Singh says. But "for the initial six to eight weeks, the first aircraft will be used on domestic routes to enable [pilot] trainees to practice landings and takeoffs."


Delivery of the long-awaited 787 almost came to a halt last month when the Indian government threatened to reject it unless the U.S. airframer provided compensation for a four-year delay in deliveries. Air India initially expected to receive the first aircraft in 2008.

Air India to Get Dreamliner This Week


By SANTANU CHOUDHURY
Source: Wall Street Journal
August 27, 2012, 3:09 p.m. ET

NEW DELHI--Air India is set to take delivery this week of its first Boeing Co. 787 Dreamliner after a wait of some four years and following a long, public battle between the airline and the jet maker over compensation for the delayed planes.

The first of the aircraft could land in New Delhi on Wednesday or Thursday, and two more will follow "in quick succession," an Air India executive said Monday.

If some formalities, such as documentation, "are completed today, the first plane should arrive Wednesday or Thursday," said the executive, declining to be named.

Air India ordered a total of 27 Dreamliner jets in 2005 as part of a $15 billion, 111-plane contract with Boeing and Airbus.

The delivery of the long-range 787s should be a boost to loss-making Air India's efforts for a turnaround by starting flights to new destinations.

Starting additional flights are crucial for Air India to regain market share, especially on its overseas routes, which have been weaned away by carriers such as Emirates Airline, Deutsche Lufthansa AG and Singapore Airlines Ltd.

The fuel-efficient Dreamliners would also enable Air India to cut costs by replacing older planes. The airline has posted losses for the past five years, due partly to high fuel and interest costs, which have been exacerbated by intensifying competition on domestic and overseas routes.

Dinesh Keskar, president of Boeing India, didn't immediately respond to questions.

Air India will join two Japanese carriers--All Nippon Airways Co. and Japan Airlines Co.--and Ethiopian Airlines in operating the Dreamliner, with as many as six more carriers set to receive them this year.

The delivery of the twin-aisle planes was delayed for several years due to production problems at Boeing, leading Air India to seek compensation.

Earlier this year, India's aviation ministry said it had asked Boeing to pay nearly $1 billion to Air India for the delay and that the Chicago company has agreed to pay half that amount. Boeing disputed that claim.

The Indian government on Aug. 3 permitted Air India to take delivery of the planes from Boeing after the two sides signed a confidential compensation agreement.

The Air India executive said the planes would be deployed initially on domestic routes for six to eight weeks, before moving on to international routes.

"We will start with flights to Melbourne and Sydney, as well as Western Europe," the executive said.

Boeing will deliver the first three Dreamliners from its new North Charleston facility in South Carolina.

Responding to a question about the recent failure of a General Electric Co. GEnx engine during a taxi test in South Carolina on a Dreamliner destined for Air India, the executive said: "We wouldn't have taken delivery of the planes if they were not safe."

He declined to elaborate.

The executive said Air India plans to raise money by selling the planes to leasing companies and hiring them.

The airline has arranged a bridge loan of $195 million from Standard Chartered Bank PLC to fund the purchase of the first two Dreamliners.

It is seeking an additional $500 million loan for the next four Dreamliners.

Air India eyes over Rs.2,500 crore from sale of Boeing 777s
The Hindu

http://www.thehindu.com/news/nationa...cle4137091.ece

After failing to find any lessor for its five Boeing 777s, the debt-laden Air India is now planning an outright sale of these aircraft to raise up to about Rs 2,500 crore, airline sources said.
The state-run airline will soon appoint a consultant to help it find a suitable buyer besides taking the assistance from Boeing on the issue, they said. The move is to trim over Rs 68,000-crore debt, they added.
“These are surplus aircraft after the induction of the latest Dreamliners in our fleet which we have decided to dispose of,” Air India sources told PTI on Monday.
Earlier, the carrier had sought to ‘sale and lease back’ the fuel-guzzling five Boeing 777-200 LR planes, which are of 2007 and 2009 make.
However, despite repeated attempts, Air India did not find any taker for them, eventually forcing to put them on the block.
“Currently, the price for these aircraft hovers around USD 85-90 million per unit,” they said, adding the proceeds from the outright sales would be utilised to phase out loan taken for these aircraft. These planes were part-funded by the US Exim Bank.
The airline will soon appoint a consultant to facilitate the sales. In addition “we have also requested Boeing to remark these planes,” sources added.
In 2005, Air India had placed orders for 68 aircraft with the US aircraft-maker Boeing consisting of 18 B737-800s, 27 Dreamliners and another 23 B777s, apart from 43 from the European plane-maker Airbus.
Of the 23 777s, 15 are B777-300 ERs and eight are B777-200-LRs.
Air India has already taken delivery of 18 737-800s and eight B777-200 LRs, besides 12 B-777-300 ERs.
The airline has also received three Dreamliners out of the 27 on order so far and four more are expected to join its fleet by the fiscal end.
The five B777s, which the carrier has now put up for sale, belong to the same order. The eight 777-200 LRs, of which Air India plans to sell five, are 235-seaters against the industry practice of 290-300 seats.
The idea behind this configuration was to operate them on ultra long-haul routes like Chicago, New York, Toronto etc, on premium fares, but that did not materialise.
This forced the airline to deploy them on medium haul sectors such as Hong Kong, Shanghai and London, rendering the aircraft operations economically unviable.
The aircraft, known as the Worldliner in the aviation parlance, or the one which can pair any two cities on the extremes, can fetch revenue only when operated on ultra-long routes.
In January, Air India had decided to do away with these aircraft by leasing them as soon as it got a firm indication about the delivery of the Dreamliners.
The first dry-lease tender was floated on January 2 this year but having failed to get a buyer it re-issued bids several times before finally scrapping the plan and deciding to go for an upright sale.
