American Airlines tenative all new Airbus plane fleet
A shift from American’s all-Boeing main jet fleet also would be a boost for Toulouse, France-based Airbus by expanding the plane maker’s U.S. foothold in the narrow-body jet market. AMR Said to Review Split of Jet Order between Airbus, Boeing. The order under study would be for as many 280 single-aisle planes, people familiar with the matter said last month. A transaction of that size would be at least $22.6 billion at list prices; this is another loss for Boeing due to mismanagement of Boeing by the top brass. American is leaving open a possible winner-take-all decision for either plane maker or dividing the deal, one person said that Airbus had a tentative agreement with American for the full order last month,
Thank Obama for trying to shut down Boeing in S.C. too. That really helps Boeing doesn't it? Yeah sure Obama, you really care about jobs. You people should think again about how great you think Airbus is after the A330 crash. Learn some details about what happens to those airplanes in certain situations. I remember all the way back when the A320 crashed into the trees during the Paris airshow. It's not a pilots airplane. It's more like a video game. I avoid flying on them and I always prefer Boeing.
Boeing also is likely to sell American more planes, according to people familiar with the talks . Boeing, in a bid to counter aggressive sales tactics of Airbus, now is proposing to put new, more modern engines on its best-selling 737 model, according to these people.
Last-minute negotiations could still sway the deal

Just who are these people Murdoch's WSJ is talking about? Were their telephones tapped into?
And why not, that jerk in Chicago hasn't been able to execute since Lew Platt pushed that sucker into that hole. The dicision maker went to Ford and we have not had a good program on time or cost yet. What a mess at the top.
