Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker lends his support to Boeing (BA +0.6%) following a series of technical problems with the 787 this week. "There will be small teething problems from time to time but this is foreseen with any new aircraft program," says Al Baker, whose carrier has ordered 60 of the jets. Al Baker notes that the glitches were isolated issues in each case and so less of a concern.
