OK, I'm a simple pax, but after reading a threads on the 787 beating the 350 in the area of new sales I'm curious to know the potential impact the 787 might have on existing 330 options.
As I understand it, airlines may have bought x number of planes with options for an addition Y number. As they are options I would assume that they are "optional" purchases for the airlines.
Do these options basically open up an opportunity for Boeing to sell the 787 in place of the optional 330 purchases? If so, what is the potential market? Are there a lot of 330 options that are at risk for Airbus?
