ATLANTA (AP) — Delta Air Lines Inc. said Monday that it has agreed to buy 15 new Airbus A321 planes to replace older, less-efficient jets in its domestic fleet.

The Atlanta-based airline didn't say how much it was paying for the new planes, but each one had a list price of $110.1 million, according to the Airbus website. That would value the order at about $1.65 billion, but discounts for buyers of multiple airplanes are common.

Delivery of the 15 planes is expected to begin in 2018.

Delta now has a total of 45 A321s on order from the French aircraft maker. The first one will begin start service in early 2016, and has 169 seats, live satellite TV and in-flight wireless Internet service.
