The first part of the trial will focus on liability, and a decision on the size of the combined damage claims will be decided at a later time.

Qatar Airways stopped taking deliveries of the Airbus A350 first in 2021 claiming a flaw in the surface below the paint which was degrading at an accelerating rate.

In the hearing yesterday, Qatar Airways highlighted that Airbus is avoiding the disclosure of documents relating to damage repair solutions addressed to other airlines.

According to the carrier; multiple airlines including Cathay Pacify, Lufthansa, ITA Airways, etc have faced similar issues.

Qatar Airways also claimed that Airbus has carried out commercial agreements with other carriers regarding repairs.

Throughout the case, Airbus acknowledged quality flaws in the A350 but continues to deny design issues.
