American Airlines Group Inc. split a $1.4 billion order of regional jets between Bombardier Inc. and Embraer SA , extending a push to update its short-range fleet.

The world’s largest carrier is buying 15 Bombardier CRJ900 planes and 15 Embraer E175 jets, according to a regulatory filing Thursday. American also took options from each manufacturer for 15 more of the 76-seat aircraft.

The purchase boosts American’s shift to bigger regional jets with room for two passenger classes, which better match the offerings of the airline’s larger single-aisle planes. American has also reduced the number of aircraft in the fleet that are smaller than the new ones it’s buying from Bombardier and Embraer.

Airbus SE widened its order lead over Boeing Co. in 2017 following a record year of jet sales, prompting the European manufacturer to talk up prospects for overtaking the North American giant by deliveries.

Airbus booked contracts for 1,109 airliners, or 52 percent more than in 2016, the Toulouse, France-based company said in a statement Monday, extending the margin over Boeing to 197 aircraft as its rival secured 912 net orders.

While Boeing retains the title of world’s biggest planemaker after delivering an all-time high of 763 aircraft versus Airbus’s 718, the order tally represents a coup for the European group after it lagged behind for much of 2017, even enduring a sales defeat in its own backyard at the Paris Air Show in June.
