United orders 270 Airbus & Boeing aircraft

Post by Greg »

United Airlines unveiled Tuesday its largest-ever aircraft order: 270 narrow-body jetliners from Boeing and Airbus as the carrier charts its post-pandemic growth.

The order includes 200 Boeing Max jets. Of those planes, 150 are Max 10s, the largest in the family. Boeing completed the first Max 10 test flight earlier this month.

The remaining 50 Boeing planes are the manufacturer’s most-popular model, the Max 8.

United also plans to buy 70 Airbus 321neos, adding to an order for dozens of the long-range version of the plane.
