About this Article

Japan Airlines is buying its first-ever jets from Airbus in a deal with a list value of $9.5 billionwith a purchase of 31 A350 planes. JAL's fleet has been dominated by Chicago-based Boeing Co. offerings, partly because of the ties between Japan and the U.S. that span decades and include security arrangements.
