Updated On: Mar 23, 2018
Boeing Co is close to winning a keenly fought contest to supply 787 Dreamliner passenger jets to American Airlines, beating the Airbus A330neo, three people familiar with the matter said.
The deal, which remains to be finalised, also marks a victory for General Electric, whose engines are expected to power the Boeing aircraft, beating competition from rival Rolls-Royce, they said, asking not to be identified.
None of the parties agreed to comment.
Industry sources had said American was looking for about 25-30 wide-body jets.
