Qatar Airways has indicated that a provisional agreement to buy up to 50 Boeing 737 MAX jets has lapsed, Boeing’s rival Airbus said in a court document released on Thursday.

Airbus requested a copy of the Boeing 737 MAX agreement after the airline brought it up in a dispute on a separate jet. But Qatar Airways rejected the request on the grounds that the Boeing deal had now “expired”, Airbus said in a UK court filing.

Qatar Airways had no immediate comment. Boeing declined to comment on discussions with airline customers.
