Re: Air Asia X cancels A350. Decision on fleet expected later this year.

Another huge win for the Dreamliner coming? I kinda hope not. TBH I really get sick of the 787. Too many of them flying around and they're way too over hyped.

It can be reverted back to a standard -900 if need be, thus increasing resale value. ULR frames tend to sell for much lower prices one they're in the yard. The 778 would just end up ...
