>BA (replace 10s and 763s)

Why would you expect BA to replace their 767-300(ER)s?  The newest was
delivered just 18 months ago, and the oldest is less than nine years
old.  With their oddball Rolls-Royce engines (China Yunnan's three
examples are the only other 767s with RB.211s), BA's 767s probably have
a very low second-hand value.

>BA will choose again the 777 even if they may change the engine supplier.

Anybody have a conjecture on whether BA will pick the Trent or the
PW4000 -- or decide to stick with the GE90 after all?
