SEATTLE/PARIS – Airbus leads a bid to sell A321neo aircraft to Dutch airline KLM. The deal could be more competitive than rival Boeing (NYSE :)’s 737 MAX according to three people who were familiar with it.
According to sources, Air France-KLM parent Franco-Dutch could take a decision by Thursday.
The people asked not to identify the sources, but they said that Boeing was still likely to remain a supplier for Transavia’s low-cost carrier. They warned that talks on these closely watched deals may go to the wire, and could change the direction.
Air France KLM claimed it hadn’t made any decision regarding a tender that was announced in January. Boeing and Airbus both declined to comment.
