Re: EK considering 787 cancellation in favor of 777-9

Yet neighbouring Etihad is experiencing NO issues with its 787-10s....so I call BS on that front. And EY's 787-10s are duel class I believe, so not exactly lightly loaded machines. and Leeham reported that market intelligence says EY wants out from remaining 78J order https://leehamnews.com/2019/02...

They can't cancel an order they haven't placed! EK has let LOI/MOU lapse in the past, so it shouldn't be that shocking. Leeham news are suggesting that the 78X is still underpowered for EK's requirements. https://leehamnews.com/2019/02/04/pontifications-787-10-engines-too-small-for-emirates/ But Em...

No surprise that they went or B777-300ER if they wanted to lease. Most BA long haul aircraft are financed on the balance sheet (...
