My question is sparked by the following article
Why should IA pay an extra Rs 5,000 crore for 43 aircraft when the EU major has offered Air Asia a price of $26 million or less per aircraft in ready-to-fly condition for delivery in 2006? the MPs ask. If IA benchmarks its contract on the price offered to Air Asia, it will spend $1.2 billion against the $2 billion reportedly being paid out.
WHO DECIDEDS THE FINAL PRICE ON EACH AIRCRAFT/DEAL? THE EU OR AIRBUS CORP.
I think some of you can see where im going with this . .
Example - Lets say Canada and France or an EU coutry have good economic ties and would like to purchase a a346 and received a lower price due to the relation . . .See where IM going ?
