Reuters exclusively reports mammoth Airbus plane order; market reacts

Reuters exclusively reported a historic order for some 300 Airbus jetliners from fast-growing Indian carrier IndiGo, worth $33 billion at recent catalogue prices. Airbus shares rose nearly 2% after the Reuters story was published and gained another 0.5% four hours later when the airline confirmed the deal, believed to be the largest ever from a single airline for the European planemaker.
