There is a big "if". I wonder what is chance that QF indeed goes ahead and order the A350... I guess we have to wait and see. Where do you see the big "if"? From my point of view, the decision for the A35k is clear without an "if". There might be a slight "if"...

It's just the normal YE-race to optimise revenue! "We need every possible $ this year!"
In addition to push down the internal inventory which helps the business numbers for 2019 too!
