Qatar Airways says some orders may be upgraded to A350-1000 planes

TOULOUSE, France, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Qatar Airways said some A350-900 orders may be upgraded to the Airbus A350-1000 range of planes, although it ruled out expanding orders for the Airbus A380 superjumbo for now.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar al-Baker also told reporters at an event in Toulouse, held to mark Airbus' first delivery of the A350-1000 plane to the Gulf airline, that sanctions imposed on Qatar by some neighbouring Arab states would not hinder Qatar Airways' growth.
