Considering UA has a hub at IAD and only runs a 757 seasonally on the route I'd say its more likely to see Level IAD-BCN before IB/AA operating IAD-MAD. Plus connecting in MAD is terrible.

The new part will be higher than the current terminal part towards the east runway. In the upper floor there is a new lounge that can be used by those who travel a lot or have more expensive tickets on long-haul flights.

...A large part of the A330ceo sales were growth sales, they didn't replace any older models. Has this growth suddenly disappeared?

The main point, relative to this thread at least , is that the early 787s were never a candidate for the used market therefore had no role in establishing used market valuations. To be exact, they were not even candidates for the used market, as it was clear their value was 0. In the A380 case, it ...Jump to post

If I were Boeing, I’d take the hit but tell them I’d want to see a one for one match of A350 cancellations before talking about anything with the 787.

Sounds fair. Trump puts sanctions in place, and Boeing decides if honor their contracts or not. As they will not, they are in breach and fully ready for trial.
