Re: Delta to issue RFP for up to 150 Narrowbodies?

If Boeing offers a killer-price which Airbus is not willing to match, it will be a no brainer for DL. But with all the recent top-up orders for A321CEOs, the momentum...

So actually more -900 order may mean CX is looking at more secondary destination opportunities.

As to the A350-1000, does that mea...
