European aerospace giant Airbus is poised to sign a contract to deliver 50 long-haul carriers to US Delta Airlines in a deal worth $14b at catalogue prices, sources told AFP on Thursday. Under the terms of the deal, Airbus will deliver 25 A350-900s, the company’s new long-haul carrier that this month received certification from the US Federal Aviation Authority and is due to enter service by the end of the year, a source close to the negotiations said on condition of anonymity. The other 25 planes will be A330-neos, an updated version of its wide-body medium-haul jet with fuel saving engines which is slated to enter into service at the end of 2017.
