Qatar Airways takes delivery of its first Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner

Qatar Airways (Doha) according to this report by Reuters, has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner. The report is based on a confirmation by Boeing yesterday (October 5). The aircraft has been flown to Victorville, CA for some additional work and will return to the Seattle area for a formal delivery ceremony.

Previously the airline had refused to take delivery of any 787s until problems with the General Electric Company-built GEnx engines were resolved. A GEnx engine on a 747-8 failed last month in Shanghai.
