Avianca, United Airlines study new jetliners

Tue 10th March, 2015 5:59pm
PHOENIX, March 10 (Reuters) - Colombia's Avianca  AVT_p.CN  
is ready to look at the Boeing  BA.N  787-9 wide-body aircraft 
but has questions about its  performance, its top aircraft buyer 
said on Tuesday. 
    "Boeing is trying to sell us the 787-9. We are analysing  
that option right now, but the performance is volatile," Jose 
Yunda, director of fleet management, said. 
    "If performance improves a little, we would like to take 
another look," he told a conference organised by the  
International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading (ISTAT). 
    United Airlines told the same gathering that the U.S. 
carrier was looking at both the Airbus  AIR.PA  A321LR, a 
long-range version of its largest narrowbody jet, and Boeing's 
studies for a possible jet between its single-aisle and 
twin-aisle models. 
    "We are looking at both ... The A321LR looks pretty decent, 
but we will see what Boeing is going to do in the mid-market," 
he told the ISTAT conference. 
    He declined further comment.
