TUI Travel is negotiating to cancel 10 of the 23 orders it has secured with Boeing for the company’s 787 Dreamliner, Flightglobal.com reported today.
The European tour operator, however, will add purchase rights for an additional 13 of the twin-engine aircraft.
The company said in an update Tuesday: “We have been in extensive discussions with Boeing, and it is the intention of both parties to agree to cancel 10 of the 23 787 aircraft that we had on order.”
The 787 is more than two years late making its first flight because of production, design and labor issues. Boeing has already lost 60 some orders for the aircraft.
