Report: United in talks with Boeing for 200 jets
United has called off negotiations with Airbus. It had been in talks with both Boeing and Airbus over the last six months.
The 200-jet deal would be for a mix of Boeing's existing 737 and upgraded 737 MAX.
An all-Boeing deal would be a boost for the Chicago-based jet maker after losing its exclusive position with American Airlines last August. American split an order for 460 single-aisle jets between the two, ordering Airbus aircraft for the first time. Boeing tentatively launched the re-engined 737 MAX for the order and since has grabbed more than 1,000 commitments and orders.
The 737 MAX will be built in Renton, where the Next-Generation 737 is assembled.
