From first deliveries of the 787 (BA 2Q 2012-13?) the plan as of May this year (as at BA's Investor Day meeting) was that they would replace 763s on a one-for-one basis. Only four years later (starting at BA's 2Q 2016-17) for which period BA made the statement "16 787 replace 7 767s, 4 747s and 5 for growth" did any indication of expansion with the 787 come into play.

This is something a lot of us in San Diego have been waiting for. I think with the ATI in place between AA and BA it makes San Diego much more attractive with the 787 available. I'm sure SAN will try and sway BA with a very nice deal.
