Bloomberg reported that IAG Chief Executive Officer Willie Walsh supports the decision of Airbus to remove lithium-ion batteries from its A350 carriers. IAG SA is currently awaiting the delivery of the first 30 Boeing 787s in May.
As quoted in the market news:
Walsh said the Airbus shift will come at a cost because it adds weight and will therefore “clearly have an environmental impact.” The older-technology batteries weigh 60 kilograms (132 pounds) more to deliver the same power, he said.
