Japan Airlines shuns Boeing for new plane orders, goes with Airbus

Japan Airlines, which for half a century has bought nothing but Boeing aircraft, went with rival Airbus Monday, agreeing to purchase a fleet of 31 A350s to replace its workhorse Boeing 777s. It's a blow for Chicago-based Boeing, which was beset earlier this year with problems on its flagship Dreamliner 787 aircraft.
