|By:, SA News Editor

Airbus (OTCPK:EADSF, OTCPK:EADSY) is near an agreement to sell 37 current-generation A321 passenger jets to Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL), a deal that would be worth $4.3B at list prices, Reuters reports.

If confirmed by the airline's board, the sale could be announced next week as part of a fleet renewal plan that also may include an order for 75 Bombardier (OTCQX:BDRAF, OTCQX:BDRBF) CSeries jets, according to the report.

The Airbus part of the deal is for the current version of the A321, a 185-seat jet that has scored significant gains against the largest member of the competing Boeing (NYSE:BA) 737 family.
