The world’s largest air carrier, American Airlines, has become the first major US airline to buy 50 long-range, single-aisle A321XLR jets from Airbus as Boeing is tries to win back customers’ trust after two recent crashes.

European aerospace giant Airbus announced the deal with American Airlines on its newly-launched narrowbody aircraft at the Paris Air Show on Wednesday. The purchase agreement includes the conversion of 30 of American’s existing orders for A321neo to A321XLRs and incremental orders for an additional 20 jets of the same model. (RT)
