Etihad in talks for Airbus order: Reuters

  • Etihad Airways is discussing potential orders for Airbus (EADSF -1.1%) A320neos and/or A350s, Reuters says, citing sources.
  • The airline is also reportedly in talks with Boeing (BA -0.3%) for the 777X and 787, although CEO James Hogan says he has "made no comment on that at all" — "[It] is Reuters speculating," he adds.
  • In other Airbus news, WSJ says India's Ministry of Civil Aviation as well as domestic airlines and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation are involved in a consultation process that may help clear the way for adoption of the A380 which in the past was considered too much of a threat to domestic carriers for widespread adoption.

    Yea, Thomas, I'm beginning to see your point. The stock is only up 81% year to date. I'm just not doing any good at all with Boeing. I'm going to sell it all and buy Abrams Air Craft Corporation.
