The carrier also per its CEO is in discussions with Boeing to modify its inherited order of 20 787-9 aircraft to now include 10 787-8 versions instead for delivery commencing 2014. CEO also says they are reviewing the proposed 787-10 variant as well.

Yes sounds like by converting to the 787-8 they hope to get some frames sooner.
I wonder what delivery positions these would be that Boeing can juggle?
Like the CEO said this might be a good move anyhow - "operationally interchangeable so there's no efficiency impact, but the different capacities open more options with respect to network and deployment"
