Options aren't included in those lists, only orders, the reports were they were supposed to be firmed by end 2018 but maybe they are still holding them but have not converted to firm order yet, or they have truly lapsed.


I thought the website use to have options listed, maybe I was wrong.

Yes the last news from Aug 2018 was they were considering 359 or 35J before the contract expires (which were suppose to last year). We will see if any news come out then.

The seats are forcing the withdrawal of the aircraft? I get if they have set an internal deadline to be rid of an old design by a certain date, but those can always be pushed back and the tickets sold for less.

Its probably a combination of the seats AND the need for the 3rd heavy check which should be be due @2022 as its usually every 6 years.
If it were just seats as someone said they could have pulled the newer seats on the retired 744s which got new seats a few years ago.
