(Reuters) -Boeing Co is close to sealing an order from Japan Airlines Co (JAL) (T:) for at least 20 of its 737 MAX planes, Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday, citing sources.

The order will likely be a combination of smaller MAX 8 jets and some of Boeing (NYSE:)’s larger MAX 10 planes, the report said.

JAL was also in talks with Airbus SE (OTC:), but is considering going with Boeing, the report said, adding that the deal may close by the end of March.

A JAL spokesperson said they were still negotiating the deal and refused to provide more details.

Boeing did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
