From Bloomberg

By Andrea Rothman and Thomas Mulier
Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Airbus SAS, the world's largest
planemaker, won an order from Spanish carrier Air Europa for 10
A350s worth 1.5 billion euros ($2 billion) the first contract for
the model that will compete with Boeing Co.'s planned 7E7.
Air Europa, Spain's third-largest carrier and until now a
Boeing customer, will take delivery of the 250-seat plane between
2010 and 2012, the Llucmajor, Spain-based airline said in an e-
mailed statement. The airline also took options on two more planes,
worth an additional $300 million if exercised.
