Etihad due diligence on Naresh Goyal's Jet Airways seen within week: CEO
All 50 Boeing 787s remain grounded as authorities in the United States, Japan and France investigate the Boston battery fire and a separate battery failure that forced a second 787 to make an emergency landing in Japan a week later.
"(The) 787 is a great aircraft, we have no doubt it will be resolved and the aircraft will be up and fine," Hogan said.
When asked if Etihad would cancel any Boeing orders, he said: "Not at all."
Etihad, with a total of 41 787-9 Dreamliners on order and options for an additional 25 aircraft, would be one of the largest operator of the aircraft type in the world.
Hogan also said that the airline has had no discussions with Italian carrier Alitalia beyond code sharing.
