agree about the a350 and the 77x, but they have like 30 787s already. might as well take some of the -9s and -10s that are on order and defer the rest.
That's the problem. While B787 are nice. They still need to Pay for it. The last thing they need right now is to pay for new aircraft. The only solutions is to defer the orders for 5-10 years so they don't have to pay the penalty. And I'm sure Boeing would be fine with it as long as they don't lose the orders.
