According to this Reuters article, the champagne corks popped too soon:
France flip-flops over Saudi air tanker deal
Quite right. Morons!
|Quoting KC135TopBoom (Reply 7):|
Now, a misstep like this makes even less sense. Timing means a lot to the Saudis, if they were not ready to announce a buy of 2 A-330MRTTs, they may just walk away from the deal. This could be a major imbarassment to them, and their image with the US.
|Quoting Flying-Tiger (Reply 8):|
That info has been floating around for several weeks now, I can remember to have read something about this in early December IIRC. Talk has always been about two or three A330 MRTT, so the press report now is not really this surprising.
