My feeling is that the market is looking for a 747-400 replacement and a larger 777-300ER with similar performance. With those two design criteria, I believe the A350-1100 with A350-1000 operating weights will come up short to the 777-9 in the latter criteria, at least.

In the same way as the 787-10 with 787-9 operating weights "comes up short" to the A350-900? This doesn't seem to be stopping 787-10 sales.
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 5):|
But if you want a 777-200 or A330-300 replacement for A-market missions (up to 5000nm/9500km), then the 787-10 is likely going to be the better choice because of it's lower empty and operating weights. And right now, that seems to be where the 787-10 is generating her sales.
|Quoting SonomaFlyer (Reply 7):|
There aren't too many missions out there that are 6,000 nm+ city pairs for these big carriers so factoring in the lower operating costs and larger cargo capabilities, the 787-10 should be a pretty sweet a/c for these carriers.
