The order would be worth over $8.5 billion at list prices, but airline customers frequently receive significant discounts.

Delta’s board of directors will vote on the purchase later this week.

A separate decision regarding the order of smaller jets, possibly Bombardier’s new C-Series, has been postponed, according to Bloomberg.
