Aeroflot PJSC is targeting a deal for 28 Airbus SE A350 jets by the end of this year, double an initial outline agreement, as Russia's biggest airline pushes expansion plans buoyed by a recovering economy.Aeroflot later scrapped the 787 deal and began re-evaluating the Airbus purchase as planes became available from failed rival Transaero Airlines.State-owned Aeroflot posted a profit of 38.8 billion rubles ($657 million) in 2016 after two years of losses.Sealing the deal would represent a victory of sorts for Airbus, after Aeroflot offloaded the 787 contract to a leasing arm of state-run Rostec last year and canceled positions for eight A350-800s specified in the original accord.
