With the lifting of sanctions today, one assumes it will not be long before the greasy reps at Airbus and Boeing will be knocking on Tripoli’s door looking for a moderate order. Further I would assume that LAA, a historic operator of western types (albeit now ancient) will not consider such exotica as the new Tu-204 & 334 for its needs.

...you're forgetting one "minor" little detail: the UN has lifted its sanctions, but the USA has not lifted its. Since that affects the production of both Boeing and its European counterpart, Libya is still at square-1.

When the sanctions were lifted some years ago, LAA sent a few of its pilots to Ireland for simulator training on the A330. Back then everybody ws expecting a huge B777 or A330 order. So far nothing materialised yet. LAA still flies very old B727's and F28's. They have since retired the F27 fleet.

Libya will get nothing from USA so its bound to go for an all Airbus order even if it means used A 313s and AB6s.

The fleet should consist of a few A 319s for the small markets, A 313s for the medium-longe range market and a 2-3 AB6s for the high demand routes.

This is the perfect fleet for a "restart-up" carrier like Libyan.

There is no need right now to spend lavishly on new A 330s A 320s or A 340s!

Buying used Airbus's is the best option for them...otherwise buy TU 204s!
