Re: AA 777-200ER replacement, A350 , 787-9 order potential

Alright, let's assume the A350 goes through, no conversions. 22x is a good start to replace some 77Es, with additional 789s as well. Now, eventually, if they want the extra capacity, and to replace the 77Ws, perhaps the A35K and 779 with Flagship First would work. A332 788 789 A359 A35K 779 Good co...
