    Probably a good price to help keep the line open and is it a dig at Airbus?
    BA is awaiting delivery of additional A320neos before, says Airbus, IAG orders its last eight A380s.
    Even IAG has to balance its cashflow and the A320 engine problem delays delivery.
    Illustrating the B777X will be available in few years maybe?

    Leasing, I think, not buying.

    Capetonianm, you are correct

    Announced on 19th at Farnborough

    Boeing has today, Thursday 19 July 2018, announced that British Airways has committed to ordering an additional 3 Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
    The announcement was made to coincide with the Farnborough Air Show. These aircraft will be leased from an undisclosed third party lessor. They will join BA’s 12 strong fleet of Boeing 777-300ER aircraft at London Heathrow. These were delivered to the airline from 2010 to 2014. 3 of these aircraft are leased and 9 are owned by BA.
    Based on plans published by BA’s parent company International Airlines Group at its Capital Markets Day late last year, it is expected that these three aircraft will replace three of BA’s oldest Boeing 777-200 aircraft.

    I suspect some of their successful 789 routes will be upgraded- like SJC, etc. (Austin just got upgraded from 789 to 77W for NS18).

    Maybe they lease the Hi Fly A380 to increase capacity if they can’t afford new A380s yet, makes the same point that Airbus sales are delayed by A320neo late deliveries?
