Who’s says Norwegian is carry cargo and their business model isn’t like most airlines.

When you sell a ticket for less than your costs of course they are going to lose money.

Also if they don’t use an ETOPS plane if it’s possible they have to hug coastlines, so the route is longer requiring the use of more fuel, which increases costs.

And WOW is in the process of getting ETOPS approval.

If the are owned by AA, they can sell them directly to anyone and get the most money.

If they are leased, they go back to the leaseholder if the lease is up, if it isn’t it will be parked in the desert unless an agreement is reached with the lessor.

If they wanted the A350, they wouldn’t have cancelled it, they would have deferred it.

The writing has been on the wall for years about them not taking it.

The order was changed from the A358 to the A359 and deferred twice, now cancelled.

You won’t see the A350 at AA.
