The Boeing 767 of United Airlines can be substituted according to a reported.
Reuters reports that the Chicago-based airline is negotiating with Boeing and Airbus on a deal that would help it substitute the approximately 50 Boeing 747s currently flying in its aircraft population. As Reuters quotes in its article, undisclosed "people acquainted with the discussions".
Reuters said in the report: "Europe's Airbus is supposed to sell its revamped Airbus 330neo against Boeing's 787 Dreamliner in a $14 billion dollar transaction at listed price, the two reports said. and all three have refused to express their views on the type of talks." Commenting on the Reuters article, United refused.
United' Boeing 767 aircraft are among the oldest in the airline's main-haul airline fleets, with an avarage of about 21 years, says Airfleets.net. Airbus is of course impressed by the latest development for its new Airbus A 330neo. At the beginning of the year Hawaiian Airlines withdrew an order for the Airbus A330neo and opted instead for the Boeing 787-9 dreamliner.
Recently, American Airlines also ordered 47 new Boeing Dreamliners, which will select this aircraft from those offered by Airbus. U.S. already has Boeing 787 Dreamliner flights and has ordered even more. When United begins delivering its first "Dash 10" 787s later this year, the 787 aircraft will have all three Boeing jets in its family.
U.S. was one of the first clients to start with Boeing's first Dreamliner 787-8. Meanwhile it also took over the 787-9 as well. United' A330 is not part of its Airbus A330 family, although the carrier has ordered more than 40 of Airbus' A350 wide bodies. Shipments of this aircraft are scheduled to arrive at United in 2022.
United' latest Boeing 767s offer space for up to 242 occupants, according to aircraft type and precision configurations. Airbus A430neos can accommodate between 250 and 310 occupants in a typically two-class layout, according to the version. United' s 787-8s and 787-9s are designed to carry 219 and 252 passenger respectively.
