The "Strategy" has changed, they have made a significant statement to that effect with the order for the "smaller" wide-body aircraft, but not just that STC has been quoted as such in recent months, he has spoken of the Network Team working on a new plan around these smaller aircraft and the requirement to have these smaller aircraft in order to launch new markets and start the next stage of expansion.
This is the center in the discussion.
ME3 seems to have problem because the competitors they used to dominate over now have as efficient or even more efficient planes and business models then the ME3. The calculation that the 777 and 380 is the most efficient planes is not true any more.
