Indonesian airline Lion Air is to buy 234 short to medium range aircraft from Airbus for 18.4 billion Euro($24 billion), in what is being billed as the biggest civilian deal in the history of the aircraft manufacturer. The contract was announced Monday at the French presidential palace, a sign of the deal's importance to the government. Airbus said it would secure 5,000 jobs at a time when French unemployment hovers around the 10 percent mark. (AP Photo/Michel Euler)
