From Air Transport World:

Airbus reportedly nearing Chinese order for 50 A320s
Dateline: Monday October 29, 2001

Airbus is close to securing an order from China for 50 A320s valued at as much as $2.7 billion based on list prices, according to the People's Daily.

The deal could be signed when German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder visits Beijing at the end of this month, the newspaper said. Earlier this month China bought 30 737s worth about $1.6 billion at list prices from Boeing.
Anyone care to speculate which Chinese carriers might be in need of new A320s? Airbus and Boeing must be thanking their lucky stars for the Chinese right now.

For the life of me I can't remember now which of the Chinese airlines was hosting an Airbus A319 test for altitude take offs and the like (China Southern, or Western?). Not too too long ago, maybe four five months ago or so. Anybody know?

It is not enough to be rude; one must also be incorrect.

China Southwest tested the A319 for flights to Tibet which is a very difficult region to operate.
