American Airlines indicated to be in discussion with Airbus and Boeing for a single aisle control.

The American airline would consider ordering Boeing 737-MAX and Airbus A321neo to renew its fleet of 737-800, A319 and A320 single-aisle aircraft. “We are talking to Boeing and Airbus about our narrow-body aircraft needs for the second half of this decade and beyond“, she said in a statement yesterday.

American Airlines is considering ordering 100 planes, Boeing 737 Max and Airbus A321neo to renew its fleet of single-aisle 737-800, A319 and A320, according to financial agency Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter. But according to the Reuters agency, the discussions are only at their beginning and that no decision is imminent.

In any case, this future order is part of a context of increased needs for airlines, while the travel sector is experiencing a strong rebound in the post-Covid period.
