I think China Eastern will order the Airbus A340-500 because they already have the A340-300 in there fleet. Northwest Airlines won't get all the 8 747-400's until the year 2005.

Flight International said a while back that China Eastern would order the 747-400 in the future. It said it would get the next batch of 747-400s ordered by teh Chinese Government.
