Etihad said at the Farnborough Airshow it was buying 25 Airbus wide-body A350 aircraft, 10 A380 superjumbos and 20 single-aisle A320 planes in a transaction worth USD$11 billion at list prices. Etihad's orders included 10 Airbus A380 superjumbos as well as other mid-sized and short-haul jets from Airbus and Boeing.
