He also said that in case the conditions for deliveries (initially 16 A350-1000 aircraft planned) were not mature enough, they could be substituted with A350-900 or other models.

  3. I do not want any deal if we will have to pay . In my world it is the buyer who pays not the seller.

    1. You're not paying for it Einstein. It's being Financed by Europeans, not paid by them! Simple explanation? It's like mortgage.
