American Airlines to order 50 A321XLRs - reports

American Airlines will order 50 of Airbus' newest A321XLR aircraft, media reported on Wednesday citing sources familiar with the matter.

The airline will convert orders and options that were previously placed for A321neos into firm orders for the longer-range XLR, according to reports. The sources added that the deal will be formally announced later in the day at the Paris Air Show.

The deal would be the European planemaker's second major one of the day after Australian flag carrier Qantas earlier amended its existing order to include 36 A321XLR aircraft.
