The fact that airlines make mistakes is a mighty weak piece of evidence to say that the UA A350 order is safe.
How about Scott Kirby at a town hall at SFO this past March 2019, telling UA employees the A350s are coming and the first UA 777s that will be retired are the 777-200s (meaning 77A models). Or in the same town hall telling employees that except for the 757s and 767s UA has a good replacement and growth plan in place. For those who were not in the room the highlights of the town hall are online.
Any United Airlines employee or retiree with access to Flying Together all you need to do is sign in to the employee intranet and search Scott Kirby Unplugged SFO, the highlights (video included) of the town hall were posted on Flying Together on April 2, 2019.
For those who are not UA employees there is a disclaimer at the beginning of the video prohibiting me from redistributing the video in any form.
