A question mark has been raised over the Airbus victory in the 2005 aircraft sales war, according to a report from Reuters.

The news agency says it has spoken to airlines in China, which say they have not paid deposits in the sale of 150 A320s. The sale enabled Airbus to snatch victory from Boeing in terms of the number of aircraft sold in 2005.

Airbus says that it had met the criteria for reporting the aircraft as firm orders.
