DOHA - IAG shareholder Qatar Airways said it may convert its ten orders for the Boeing ultra-long-range 777-8 widebody jet to the larger 777-9, depending on the performance of the 777-9.

"If the 9 is performing very close to the parameters that the 8 will operate, yes we may convert the 8 to 9," Qatar Airways CEO Akbar al-Baker told "Reuters" on the sidelines of an event to launch a new route from Doha to Langkawi.

In the wake of the 737-crisis Boeing postponed the 777-8 EIS but remains committed to building the jet. Emirates backs the aircraft with an active order for 35 777-8s.
