As my previous post was deleted I will re-itterate in a more mild manner
I would strongly suggest that you improve your website fast. Not only when it comes to spelling and the actual text, but also the images used. I seriously got the impression I was dealing with a sort of Blackwater company with all the military images.

You're coming to what is, for lack of better words, a website for spotters and anoraks, expecting to find detailed information about aircraft lease deals? Now call me a cynic, but that tells me you're not serious or, just as bad, has insufficient nowledge of the aviation industry to lease a bag of spanners, let alone an aircraft.
There are ways to go about getting information on lease deals; a public forum is probably the last place anyone serious about leasing anything would go. While I could write thousands of words on lease deals, and might even be able to point you in the direction of the best deals currently going, I'm not daft enough to do so without you paying me handsomely for the effort.
Tell you what: Dial up googoo and look for ILFC. Have your credit card ready and give them a call. You see, they don't work for nothing either. Think of them as lawyers, just much more expensive to talk to.

Post a listing in the "aircraft wanted" section of Speednews.com. Your phone will start ringing and your email inbox filling up quickly. Then you have to sift through 95% of the respondents who will be brokers without any solid connection to a particular aircraft. Ask all brokers for a mandate letter signed by the aircraft owner/lessor proving they have the authority to offer you a specific aircraft.
Be ready with your business plan, letter of credit / proof of large deposit funds / parent guarantee and authority from your aviation authority, etc. so when a lessor calls you can stay on the line.
An A330 is hard to get but not impossible if you meet the lessor's requirements.
