Are you talking about this?
"TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Taiwan's flagship airline apparently is canceling an order for 12 Boeing 777s in protest of the Clinton administration's mainland China policy. Boeing had been expecting the $2 billion deal to be formally announced at any time. It has been working on it since Taiwan's China Airlines signed a letter of intent to buy the jets in 1995. China Airlines is expected to announce a major purchase of A-340 planes from Airbus Industrie instead, as early as next week.
China Airlines is still expected to announce the purchase of 13 Boeing 747s, but Boeing is locked in a fierce competition with Airbus between the slightly smaller 777s and A-340s."
If is this you're talking about, it seems to be a little different. I don't make comments on this because it will be just speculation.
