Air Asia ‘is sticking with Airbus’

During a press conference owner/founder of Air Asia Tony Fernandes said that while Boeing wanted Air Asia as a customer there was nod deal on the cards.

Widespread rumours of discussions with Boeing were not denied, suggesting they did take place, but it’s unlikely Boeing could have brought the price of a 787-9 down to anywhere near that of an A330neo, and compensated Air Asia for any loss in cancellation fees.
