Contract Damages for breach. The Commercial Court had previously found that a Romanian airline maintenance company had breached its contract with the airline and that it was liable for damages. As the parties were unable to agree on quantum, the court determined some disputed areas, including how many aircraft would have been serviced if the agreement had not been terminated and whether the airline could claim the salaries of its permanent staff redeployed due to the breach.
