If the commonality between the a359 and a339 is pretty good, why wouldn't they operate two smallish fleets (15 a359s + 15 a339s) of each and they could cover broader part of the market. I know this is unlikely given the 787s but Airbus fans are allowed to dream too. Delta did 25+25 right? Maybe not...
