I don't recall the reasons they gave at the time (other than price of course), but why did PMUA order the A-350-900 as 1-for-1 replacements for the 747 fleet? Why did they not order the A-350-1000 if they were trying to order the latest-generation aircraft? And would the 77W not have been a better replacement since almost every other airline has replaced their 747s with 77Ws?
Regardless, pretty cool that the new United has 50 787s and 25 A-350s on order!!
