    Boeing stock price for the year to date is down 1.47% compared to the Dow up 3.95%,Plane deliveries

     

    United Continental Holdings is in talks with Airbus about buying A350-1000 jets, a step toward the first U.S. purchase for the plane maker’s largest twin-engine model, people familiar with talks said.

    The world's biggest airline is considering the 350-seat plane to replace older Boeing 747s, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. United already has agreed to buy 25 of the mid-sized A350-900.

    A United order would help Toulouse, France-based Airbus in its effort to loosen Boeing's grip on the market for large twin- aisle aircraft. "This will be a big wake-up call for Boeing," said Richard Aboulafia, vice president of the Teal Group, a Fairfax, Va.-based aerospace forecasting company. "There's a big market emerging for the next-generation of the 777-300ER, and so far, Airbus is the only manufacturer with a firmly launched new product."

    Airbus is promising the A350-1000's first delivery by 2017 and promotes it as 25 percent more efficient than a 777-300ER, partly because it uses more lightweight composite materials. That timeline may give Airbus a head start of three years over a 777 replacement, because Boeing hasn't committed to a schedule beyond saying the new plane would be in service by decade's end
