AirAsia's Fernandes undecided on plane order, no plans to attend Farnborough
Updated : July 18, 2018 06:23 AM IST
Fernandes might attend the air show where AirAsia and Airbus will attempt to end a rough patch in their relations and agree all or part of a package of wide-body and narrow-body plane orders.
Industry sources have said AirAsia is discussing the possible purchase of another 100 Airbus A321neo jets as the airline and Airbus go down to the wire in parallel negotiations for an expanded order for larger A330neo jets.
Fernandes said this month that AirAsia's long-haul affiliate AirAsia X needed to ensure the price, performance and engines of the A330neo were right before confirming its 66-jet order.
