State-run Air India Ltd’s plans to take delivery of two Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft could get delayed since the central bank is yet to clear funding for the same, a senior Air India executive told Mint on Saturday. Air India, which already has seven Dreamliners in its fleet, was scheduled to take delivery of its eighth plane by July end, and ninth by the second week of August.
