Boeing (BA +0.1%) takes another hit to its troubled Dreamliner program, this time over more fallout from the plane's flawed General Electric (GE -0.1%) GEnx engine. There appears to be a material defect in the midfan shaft of the engine, and Qatar Airways is refusing to take delivery until the defects are sorted out. The Government-owned airline has 30 firm Dreamliner orders and was expected to take five deliveries this year.
