Libyan Arab Airways is close to finalize the deal for 25 pax and 4 cargo planes. The passenger aircraft capacity ranges from 100 to 350.

This helps the network expansion to cover South Africa, Europe, Far East (India/China)

It also plans link to North America.

It already launched 2 weekly Tripoli - Milan on 18NOV06, and considering Madrid, Paris, Lyon.

It says they will announce the order this month and recieve the first plane in April. Seems a bit fast, doesn't it?!

Quoting Jimyvr (Thread starter):

While this is unlikely... the only realistic cities IMHO would be Montreal or New York City.

Maybe used aircraft, or Russian birds?

Mostly likely its going to be a split order to appease both Washington and the EU.

My bet is on Airbus.They will lease some planes first and then start delivery.

I would guess it'll be a mix of A and B. Too bad politics have to be involved.

And Houston, with long-shots Atlanta, Toronto, or Washington
