Qatar Airways, whose CEO last week gave his support to Boeing's (BA) 787, has joined other carriers in indefinitely grounding its fleet of five Dreamliners after receiving instructions from Qatari regulators. On the brighter side for Boeing, its 921 aircraft orders in 2012 means that it's regained the crown of being the world's biggest planemaker after Airbus received 833. Airbus delivered 558 jets and Boeing 601.
