Qatar Airways Takes Delivery of Airbus A380 superjumbo from Airbus

The delivery of the first of 10 A380s ordered by Qatar Airways brings to an end a three-month dispute between the airline and Airbus over the quality of the cabin interiors. The inauguration ceremony of Qatar's first business class Airbus A380 was held on September 18, 2014, at Hamad International Airport in Doha.
