American Airlines Places Unprecedented New Aircraft Order

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — American Airlines announced Wednesday that it has ordered 460 new planes – the largest new aircraft order in aviation history.

Many of the jets are newer, more fuel efficient planes manufactured by both Boeing and Airbus.

The purchase, which will cost billions of dollars, could put pressure on other airlines to upgrade their fleets.

    Oh goody! More fuel efficient planes. This can only mean lower ticket prices, right? Yeah, right…..right after they’re done paying Airbus and Boeing…then maybe.

    Why is American Airlines buying planes from Airbus??????? All the orders should be from Boeing, an AMERICAN COMPANY!!!!!!!!!!!

    You are right mike. How about if we buy buy American made products too ???
    Perhaps we would have jobs again. I’m hoping you’re leading by example and are driving an American made vehicle.
