LONDON, UKQatar Airways has issued legal proceedings against Airbus in the Technology and Construction division of the High Court in London over the painting issues on its A350 jets.



"We have sadly failed in all our attempts to reach a constructive solution with Airbus in relation to the accelerated surface degradation condition adversely impacting the Airbus A350 aircraft. Qatar Airways has therefore been left with no alternative but to seek a rapid resolution of this dispute via the courts," the airline said in the press release.

Qatar Airways said it currently has 21 A350 aircraft grounded by the condition and the legal proceedings have been commenced to ensure that Airbus will now address the airline's legitimate concerns without further delay.

"We strongly believe that Airbus must undertake a thorough investigation of this condition to conclusively establish its full root cause. Without a proper understanding of the root cause of the condition, it is not possible for Qatar Airways to establish whether any proposed repair solution will rectify the underlying condition," said the Airline.
