Nothing very precise here.Neither types , neither number are known.
Only old types will leave the Air China fleet when deliveries will beginn.

End of 767s , A340s and 744s ?

New types ordered : More 787s , 77Ws , 748s ? New batch of A330s ? A380s ? A350XWBs ?

Probably all is open.Will see...

very uncertain article. its great that they are looing at new aircraft, but it doesn't really say anything besides that it is widebody aircraft.
however, my guess would be 787-8, -9, 350-9 and -10, 748 and 380.

China is a massive country with a great potential in 5-10 years time, with a humongous population, why I think we will see all these different aircraft

One of the reports on this story spoke of more 787s and A350s; CA already has 15 -8s on order.

If 789s are ordered (and given that CA already has 77Ws on order), where would A350s fit in (and yes, I know commomality has never been a big issue for Chinese carriers)?

Might this be one of the major announcements at Farnborough?
