Default AA places massive 787 order, cancels A350 order.

Big boost for Boeing :

American Airlines Group Inc. AAL -3.55% on Friday announced a huge order for Boeing Co. BA -3.06% twin-aisle jets worth more than $12 billion before discounts and canceled a deal to buy rival Airbus SE EADSY -0.57% planes......The airline is canceling an existing order for 22 A350 jets placed by US Airways, which merged with American in 2013.

American also reached a deal with Boeing to defer delivery of 40 737 Max single-aisle jets due to arrive from 2020 to 2022.

Second switch by an American Airbus customer this year following Hawaiians switch to 787 last month.

Having flown on both types, as a passenger I vote for A350.

Not really surprising - IIRC, the 9 A330 they have in their long-haul fleet were inherited form US Airways. The rest of the long-haul fleet is Boeing.
