Fri Jul 04, 2003 6:54 am

Still according to "La Presse" website, Airbus just received an order from Air Algérie.

An order for five 332s and 3 A32Xs (politics obviously having an impact with the latter) was expected.

Yes, I'd love a link too. The main website is http://www.cyberpresse.ca (a knowledge of French is needed). I couldn't find anything about Air Algérie.

I don't know what's going on...

I was able to confirm the Boeing order, but I have no success with that apparent order. "La Presse" is a serious newspaper; don't know what happened...

Anyway, the closest I came to confirm this order was with the Parisian business newspaper "Les Échos", dated June 30th, 2003, saying that Airbus is about to close a sale of 8 planes to Air Algérie (no type specified).

Sorry for the disappointment this thread might have created...
