* Plans to buy 40 A320 aircraft, similar number of Boeing 737s
* To expand fleet by 53 percent to 322 aircraft by 2010
* In talks with Boeing on compensation for 787 delay
* Long-haul international routes in loss, so won't buy A380s

Means that by now we have three carriers which have announced what aircraft they want to take from the recent CASC order:

- China Eastern 40 A320
- Shanghai Airlines 10 A320
- China Southern 10 A330-200


Flown: A319/320/321,A332/3,A380,AT4,AT7,B732/3/4/5/7/8,B742/4,B762/763,B772,CR2,CR7,ER4,E70,E75,F50/70,M11,L15,S20

Do you mean all long-haul routes, or just those making loss ?

Here are some of MU long-haul destinations: CDG, LHR, YVR, LAX.

 eyepopping  Quite an expansion in 2-3 years.

I have been wondering the same thing. If not, I expect a 150 aircraft order going to Boeing in 2008.  Smile
