American Makes Largest Order Ever!

American Airlines made the largest aircraft order in all of commercial aviation history! The $13billion, 460-plane order consists of 200 Boeing 737s and 260 Airbus A320s. Both types will feature re-engined models, including the new CFM Leap-X engine. It was not reported if any of the 737s will be ETOPS certified, considering that some of the aircraft to be replaced will be their early-model 757-223s.

American Airlines' report from their newsroom.

American's 737-823, N857NN (c/n 30907, l/n 3434), is seen above at LAX, clearing Runway 25L on Taxiway H9. It was delivered to American in October of last year, and photographed a month later.
