agreed with the above except for OS. They are strongly rumored to favour the 787.
But really, a lot of 350/787 campaigns will be very competitive and could go either way. Look at the Middle-East, where EK,EY,GF,KH,SV and others are yet to decide. Jet is also looking at both as are SE Asian airlines like MH,TG and SQ. Some will come down to price, some to availability, some to capacity and some to existing fleet issues.

I would expect LH to get a few A350s or possibly to mix and match. Oh and by the way it's Iberia not Iberian.

If memory serves, isn't LH still evaluating the B787 vs A350? I think LH may lean more towards the B787 because it will represent a totally new design and offer greater projected economy over the A350. Also LH isn't entirely happy with their A346, and Airbus had to cut them substancial slack.

I think you will see the B787 fly for LH

Moparman;

...."LH isn´t entirely happy with their 346"....

IB was in the same limbo some time ago that proof to be wrong.

TS to decide, I'm guessing, this spring which way to go. They're letting A and B fight it out right now. It won't surprise me if they go MD11, MD 83. It is all about the bottom line.

Flug International from March 2005. The article is in German, and a part of the Lufthansa 50th anniversery section. I may be reading it wrong, and if I am I appologize. What it says is something like this: We (LH) thought long and hard about purchasing the B777 instead of the A346 in the latest round of orders because of it's surperior reliablitiy and economy. Micke this of course is only a paraphrase, but I believe accurately translated. It goes on to say that they recieved some very favorable treatment from Airbus in a time where they (LH) are loosing money.
