Qantas cancels bookings for 35 longer-distance Boeing (BA) 787-9s aircraft with a list price of $8.5B after making a FY net loss of A$245M ($257.4M), the airline's first since 1995. However, Qantas is keeping an order for the 787-8, 15 of which are due to be delivered in H2 next year. Boeing is also paying Qantas $433M, with over $300M for late deliveries.

    I always felt that Boeing 787 was overpriced. Hell,Tupolev should continue the development of the LNG tu-154 platform and implement those measures on Tu-204. Such an plane could easily have first mover advantage.
