Without discussing whether this is a fact or not I wonder what it means for Boeing.
I understand that many airlines - as stated in that thread - are presently going from an old Boeing aircraft as the 747 to a newer, leaner Boeing aircraft as the 777. And I guess that is not completely bad for the manufacturer even if there is a risk some airlines will end buying an Airbus instead.
But what is the case with those getting rid of their 777s? Are they lost for Boeing or still the 747 and the 767 are an alternative?
