The A350s will eventually take over the bulk over the long haul routes and with the 777Xs coming along around 2021, there will be few long haul routes with the 10 abreast config by the time the retrofits are beginning to show up across the network. I like the decision, it'll help them better compete with the Asian LCCs by allowing the ability to drop Y fares on those regional routes. I know the 777X 10 abreast seats aren't as wide as 9 abreast 77W but they will still be comfortable.
3-3-3 on a 330/340 is hell, 3-4-3 on a 777 is luxury compared to that.
