Etihad cancels A340 order

09 July 2009

According to data from Airbus, Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways had cancelled one of eight outstanding orders for long-distance A340-600 jetliners worth $250m each at list prices, Reuters has reported. An Etihad spokesman has said the cancelled order related to an aircraft which rammed into a concrete wall during engine testing at the planemaker's Toulouse headquarters in November 2007, injuring nine people, including four seriously. 'Etihad has not deferred or cancelled any of its aircraft orders' other than the damaged A340, the spokesman said.
