According to Flight International 26/11-2/12:-

China Southern is poised to order 4 A330's,which model is unclear.

In addition,6 A319's and 14 more A320's are soon to be order.

All orders are subject to government approval.

This would be the first A330 order for Mainland China,and a breakthrough for Airbus which has not met with great success in widebody sales in China.

Given the A330's,superb cargo capacity and excellent range(-200) this aircraft will be an excellent addition to the rather varied CZ fleet...IMHO.

Im confused, I thought they were ditching Airbus, as evidence by their latest 737 orders.

This makes no sense.

A mixed 330/772 fleet as well as a 320/738 fleet?




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Tons of airlines presently have 330/772 fleets for the same passenger reasons they have 76[3,4]/772 fleets with the added advantage of more cargo.

Heh if the US can whine about the loans to Airbus, certainly Airbus can whine about our using political pressure. We have a lot more of it than they do.

Heh not really... I cheer for competition... what makes Airbus strong makes Boeing stronger, and vice versa.
