Reuters has reported that the carrier is in talks to double its order for Airbus A380 superjumbos to 10, and to award an engine contract for the planes to Engine Alliance, a joint venture between GE and Pratt & Whitney , which competes with Rolls-Rolls Holding Plc to power the world's largest airliner.
