I made a mistake last night as I forgot to add 5 each in years '21 and '22.

22 total (for now).

I know these were inhereted as part of the merger, but I can't help but wonder far if the company wouldn't rather just have a larger fleet of 787-900s than these A350s? There is such a duplicity between the two fleets, I wonder if they explored shedding these orders to someone else?

The A350's will serve a niche that will be beneficial for opening new routes. It could very well open up routes that a 787 can't accomplish. This is why I believe we will absolutely see them on property.

What routes can a 350 do that a 777/787 can't?

Don't get me wrong I'd rather have an all airbus fleet. Much more comfortable. And no yoke.

Not to mention NAI and the ME3 get a free pass because they buy Boeing. So we should boycott them.

Our 772's are getting old. I can see the 350's replacing those and opening Chinese markets too small for the 773ER but too long range for a 772 without cargo/load restrictions. 78's are being 'right sized' for -8/-9 operations to Europe, SA and Asia.

I believe you're right. 772s will probably disappear as A350s come online.
