United Places $7 Billion Order for Longest-Range Airbus A321 JetUnited Airlines Holdings Inc. placed an order for 50 Airbus A321neo XLR-variant. United is the third U.S. carrier to order the A321XLR after American and JetBlue, and they intend to replace their aging Boeing 757s and use them on certain existing trans-Atlantic routes, and explore using it to serve additional European destinations from hubs in Washington D.C. and Newark.

Saw this one coming eventually. The 57 is a great airplane, but at some point they need to be replaced.
I always thought it had a great ride and didn't seem to need much runway to get airborne
Just a shame it wasn't by new 757's
Boeing problems have created quite a mess and this is what we are seeing more of. Airbus is out selling Boeing at least 2 to 1.
Boeing and United used to be one company.
