The 788 is still an amazing aircraft, even though most can do well with the 789. If you can't fill it, the 788 still makes a lot of sense and a pretty darn good 763ER replacement.


It's overkill as a 763ER replacement.

I think the 787 might be too much aircraft for the route that could easily be done with the A330. Add the cost of introducing a new type and it just makes sense for them to stay with the A330 family.

Simple white liveries work well with the A350 because of the raccoon mask. With other more complicated designs it just makes things busier or the black does not go well with the colors near it.
