Lufthansa plans $10bn jet order

Deutsche Lufthansa’s board of directors and supervisory board are expected to approve in mid-September an order for about 50 wide-body jets worth more than $10bn at list prices, according to two people familiar with the matter. The German airline previously said it expected to place such an order in the second half of 2013. Lufthansa is evaluating Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner, Boeing’s still-to-be-launched 777X, and Airbus’s A350.
