Nov 30 United Continental Holdings Inc
said it was reviewing whether to alter an order of about $12.5
billion at list prices for Airbus Group SE's largest
twin-engine jets, the A350-1000s, for smaller long-haul models.
Bloomberg reported on Wednesday that United, the No. 3 U.S.
airline, may swap some orders of the Airbus A350-1000s for other
wide-body jets such as the A350-900, which can fly longer
routes, or the smaller A330. (bloom.bg/2fRL8mD)
The airline is also considering converting some order of
Boeing Co's 737 jets to 737 MAX 10X, a longer version of
the airplanemaker's next-generation 737 MAX model, according to
the Bloomberg report, which cited Chief Financial Officer Andrew
Earlier this month, United said it would convert orders for
61 Boeing 737-700 planes due to be delivered in the next two

A United spokesperson told Reuters on Wednesday that the
company had started a review of the orders, as an example of
changes the airline's new CFO, Levy, was considering since
joining in August.
