Leading on Flightglobal now is a very mischievous Willy Walsh pledging that BA will choose a long haul fleet that will definitely have engines...but it is a good question, who will BA choose.... My bet's on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner!!!!
It seems like the decision has been made, a pick and mix of both Airbus and Boeing
Obviously keeping everyone happy. American and European Aircraft with British engines.
Rumour has it that GKN are bidding to have an A350 production line in the UK so that may sway BA to order the A350 when their next round of orders take place.
