According to V-Flyer, there is a rumour that VS will soon place an order for 777s and 787s. What are your thoughts?

Apart from new orders, what is VS' delivery schedule like over the next 12-18 months, and what new routes are likely??

The 777's probably would be a lot better, that is in terms of fuel efficiency and freight capacity for many of the VS routes, espeically between the larger destinations in the Americas/Asia and London than their current A-340s and 747's. The 787's will be a good fit for some of their routes like between London and smaller destinations in North America. One has to wonder if this is due to the A-380 delays and other economic considerations.
