Well, as was mentioned, they'd have to deal with the massive cancellation costs of the contract with Rolls-Royce and, as someone else mentioned, usually the cost of cancelling a purchase contract increases when it's renegotiated (which it has been once already with Airbus) so - high, since the cancellation would be for two separate agreements. I'm not sure anybody but those party to the actual contracts would know the dollar value, but I could be wrong..
I am fairly certain that Rolls Royce will let them out of the A350 with commitments to use their engine type on another order....
If that’s the case then as mentioned in reply #86, UA had better tell Boeing they’ll buy several dozen 797s.... but only if they come with RR..
