Re: Updated: AA agrees to order 50 Airbus A321XLR's

This replaces their aging fleet of 757-200s, the exact aircraft we expected to be replaced by an A321XLR, and the exact part of the market that Boeing was willing to give up when looking at the NMA. Not a surprise here at all. Now they just need to get rid of the ancient 77E's, A333's, and A320's. ...
