Air France-KLM poised to expand long-haul fleet

Air France-KLM is poised to confirm a massive long-haul aircraft order split between Airbus and Boeing. News agency reports suggested the value will be tens of billions of dollars for 100 aircraft to replace older models.

Details are expected to be unveiled next month as the Franco-Dutch airline comes under pressure to support the Airbus A350, the European manufacturer’s answer to the much delayed Boeing 787 Dreamliner twinjet.

The French state holds a 15.7% stake in Air France-KLM. "The final result will undoubtedly be a balanced result between the two constructors," a source told news agency AFP.
