1. Almost every airline will be beating a path to Boeings door to hand over deposits to order the plane
2. Despite this Boeing are still struggling to make the business case work.
The reality is - talk is cheap so at the moment many airlines are interested. When a firm configuration is reached from a sales perspective and real money for guaranteed performance is required then it might not be the case.
Remember the market is sort of squeezed from the bottom by the A321 in it's various guises (and I suspect Boeing are factoring in an A322) and from the top by the more capable frames then the airline needs to be confident of the niche will fully employ the frame. They may choose to abuse a larger frame occasionally than have an MoM, or use a slightly less capable one which is useable on all sorts of routes effectively.
This is not an easy gap to fill with a real plane.

Every carrier who used 752s to the limits of their range, across an economic number of frames, will be candidates, too.
