No kidding. 200 new aircraft that are NOT going to be built by union employees of Boeing.
Bet they are really happy with the union leadership and the NLRB.
They were ordered by Air Asia, a Malaysia based LCC.
They started out with 737's, but switched to Airbus a while back. The NEO provides better fuel economy, many airlines are bleeding red ink due to oil prices,
Boeing's recalcitrance on updating the 737 is fueling NEO sales, and may cause even more carriers to switch to Airbus.
Most airlines want their fleets to be all one brand, simplifying MRO, which is nearly as big a price factor as initial purchase.
