PARIS (Reuters) – United Airlines has ordered 10 extra A350 passengers jets while downgrading its overall order from the largest model, the A350-1000, to the smaller A350-900, Airbus said on Wednesday. United Airlines will now take 45 A350-900 aircraft instead of 35 of the upcoming A350-100 model, which is now being tested. United Continental Holdings <UAL.N>, the airline’s parent group, said separately it had deferred A350 deliveries to late 2022 through 2027 as part of a fleet review.
