Boeing is liable to pay compensation to Air India, the Civil Aviation Minster, Ajit Singh, has said while speaking to the media in New Delhi.

India’s national carrier had grounded all six Boeing 787 aircraft (Dreamliners) in its fleet early on 17 January.

“Let us get some clarity on the situation before any decision can be taken.”

He said there is no decision or thinking on cutting down the number of aircraft ordered by Air India.

The Boeing 787, which is the newest civilian aircraft in the global market is a long-range, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner, developed by the US-based Boeing.

Its variants seat 210 to 290 passengers.

The aircraft entered commercial service in October 2011 after a delay of almost three years.

According to a Reuters Report, US Federal Aviation Administration issued an advisory to ground the Dreamliners in that country.

ANA, JAL, Ethiopian, Qatar Airways and Air India are among some of the global airlines that have inducted this aircraft into their fleet.
