Lufthansa Said to Plan Boeing-Airbus Split on Jet Order

Deutsche Lufthansa AG will split an order for about 50 wide-body aircraft between Airbus SAS and Boeing Co., a purchase with a list value of at least $14 billion, people with knowledge of the matter said.

The twin-engine jets will be Boeing’s 777-9X, which is due to fly by decade’s end, and Airbus’s A350-900, said two of the people, who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t yet public. The order, which would be the first for the 777-9X, may be announced as soon as next week, the people said.
