BA favour Boeing over Airbus

British Airways have added to its fleet of aircraft by buying four Boeing 777-200 with a delivery date of 2009.

There is an option of four more being added in 2010 with a price tag of $201 million for each one.
Airbus and Boeing were to both try to outbid the other for the contract but BA decided that the Boeing jets would be more harmonious to its fleet.

BA last year had said that they were looking to buy 34 planes at least yet at the same time said it had to cut its £2.1 billion pension deficit first.
