Both the Wall Street Journal and Reuters have reported that Boeing has offered American Airlines (AA) a re-engined version of the 737 which has led to a rush of last minute talks before todays expected aircraft order. We can logically assume that if AA does not make a large aircraft order announcement today then the delay is due to consideration of Boeing’s last minute cave-in and offer of new engines on its 737s. It is however expected that AA will now announce a split order (as reported here last week) between the A320/A320neo and a re-engined 737 as yet to be announced.
