American Airlines says in talks with Airbus, Boeing over narrowbody jet order
Aug 2 (Reuters) – American Airlines (AAL.O) said on Wednesday that it is in talks with planemakers Airbus (AIR.PA) and Boeing (BA.N) over a new narrowbody jet order, at a time when airlines rush to order more aircraft amid a travel boom.
Bloomberg News earlier reported that the airline was in talks with the companies to order at least 100 jets, citing people familiar with the matter.
“We are talking to Boeing and Airbus about our narrowbody aircraft needs for the latter half of this decade and beyond,” American said in a statement.
