Quoting AutoThrust (Reply 1): IMO this order will go to Boeing, the 787 is just the better A300 Replacement.
Since TG is a mostly two-class operation, the A350 would allow some expansion and would provide eventual replacement options for their A345/A346/773A fleet where the 787 will currently not - and won't in the future in the case of the A346 or 773A unless a 787-11 model is produced.
Could be a mixed-fleet of 787-8s and 787-9s with A350-900s and A350-1000s...
