I'm surprised they haven't more from Germany ...
Ahhhhh Lufthansa group has that on lockdown... Lufthansa, Germanwings, Swiss, Austrian, and now Brussels Airlines... add in some Air Berlin, not anytime soon... Why bother go for a bloody nose in a fight when you can take candy laying being held out for you to take away...? Just my .02
In other interesting news... Norwegian is planning on using the 787 intra-Europe... Not the routes I would have expected. The 737 is always weight restricted out of DXB apparently so that was my first guess... I guess this was more of an ability to check off crew and maximize utilization, though. Curious to see if they offer anything in their premium cabin on a short haul route... for free at least... From what I remember they used the 787 to AGP when they first started to get crews trained on it quicker...
