American Selects Boeing Aircraft to Simplify Fleet


top story photo American announced that it has ordered 47 new Boeing 787 widebody aircraft consisting of 22 787-8s scheduled to begin arriving in 2020 and 25 787-9s scheduled to begin arriving in 2023.

The 787-8s will replace American's Boeing 767-300s, while later 787-9 deliveries will replace Airbus A330-300s and older 777-200 widebody aircraft, the carrier said.

As part of the company's strategy to simplify its fleet, American said it agreed with Airbus to terminate its order for 22 A350s, which originally was placed by US Airways.
