Quoting Flying-Tiger (Reply 1): Why are they now allowed to participate on CASC´s bulk order(s)?
Well, perhaps CASC has met some resistance from the larger Chinese airlines with respect to taking all of the A320 orders for which its has contracted. I think it's pretty clear that the orders from China for both Airbus and Boeing airliners aren't just motivated by commercial concerns, and it may be a bit of a challenge to place 450 new narrowbody airliners all ordered within the past 18 months.
