Will ANA take more 787's?

Dear Ladies and gents,

I noticed that ANA have ordered only 3 B787-10's. Is it likely that they will order more ? Will BA/UA perhaps order some more -10's?

On a separate note I know ALC has quite a large order for the B787-10 too, does anyone know who they have placed them with?
