What the article correctly says is, that the A3XX would not be needed before 2007, not that LH wouldn't order
it before 2007. If LH would order now, the first delivery could be 2007, as there are already 4 other customers (soon to be 5, with Virgin) which have ordered before LH.
So, Spiegel shows once again its quality. Remember the report one or two weeks ago about the new stretched A340, which would replace the A3XX, and which turned out to be the already well known A340-600??
