UA is not a super-premium airline, so the A380 holds no attraction to them, in the absence of UA private suites in First Class etc.

RE: Drop 787-3 In Favour Of 787-9, -10?

Boeing might build the 787-10. But it can charge almost as much for the 787-9, which is easier to build and deliver. So it stands to reason Boeing will only build the 787-10 as a last resort after the 788 and 789 are milked for a while. Airbus is not much of a threat, it seems to Boeing.
