My 2 cents,
Boeing will win this one. I believe that for speed's sake, QF will take the B737-800. As pointed out, the B737-800 is available quicker. Note the QF press release. "At least 165 s-o-t-a slimline seats (which means the seats found on the B747-400's (without PTV's)". The ONLY way this can be done is if the aircraft options are the B737-800 or the A321-200. The A320 can't take 165 (AN has 144 in the A320).
And no matter what Dixon says, this is out to crush AN, and even DJ. All economy shuttle type service (even to the extent of the food boxes), AN should try to fight this with a similar product.
Note the non-mention of the B717's. Does this mean that they will be "gone"? If so, McGowan is in the deep brown stuff. If we take the wages freeze that Dixon is trying to get out of the unions, you'll see there's no need for the 717 in the QF fleet.
