This doesn't come as a surprise since its main competitor, KE has them on order.

They could be potentially order at least 5 frames.

Maybe this is part of the 20 frames Airbus has been talking about.

I'd expect three to four frames, depending on where OZ flies their current 2 744s and 6 744Ms and what the cargo to passenger ratio is on the combi's.
