Airbus logs A350 order; Boeing 787s at LAX

Airbus won an order for 10 A350-900s from CIT Group Inc., the jet maker announced Thursday.

It’s the second time CIT has ordered the A350, bringing its total request to 15.

“We are very confident that our A350 XWB Family will perfectly meet long haul operators’ needs by offering them the highest levels of comfort and efficiency,” John Leahy, Airbus chief operating officer, said in a statement.

CIT’s latest request brings the A350 sales total to 572 firm orders from 34 customers.

Airbus announced the new A350XWB order shortly before rival the Boeing Co. released its 2012 totals for orders and deliveries.

In other Boeing news, the company’s 787 Dreamliner has been making appearances at Los Angeles International Airport.

South American carrier LAN began international flights using 787s out of LAX on Wednesday.

On Thursday, United Airlines launches 787 service between Los Angeles and Tokyo’s Narita airport. However, the carrier has pushed back some of its planned 787 international service due to recent reliability issues with the Dreamliner, reports Flightglobal.
