Dispute rumbles on over Doha airport delay

Qatar Airways CEO says contractor 'seriously defaulted', must take responsibility for delay

Ex Qatar resident

This is yet another example of a State funded project which has crashed over non-payment or with-holding payments. The UAE seem to eclipse Qatar at every opportunity through their ability to honour financial obligations to suppliers.

Isn't this the same airport from which the CEO just recently blamed Berlin? Think before you blame would be something good.

LDI has very well stated it has got nothing to do with Qatar Airways as it never got into contract with the Airliner, which is something Mr. Al Baker is very well aware of. However, I personally think there is an attempt to use LDI as a scapegoat to blame for the tragic failure of the entire project which kept repetitiously missing completion dates over the past 5 years, and yet to miss another completion date, i.e. June 2013.
A State sponsored investigation must be launched to find out the real causes of the NDIA project failure and the unbelievable cost and time overruns.
