Hutch but speculation is fun and in about five years time we will know what the upshot is or will be. My bet is a total of 50 787s across all models and 25 A350-1000s

Five years is when we know, 10 years is when they will all arrive.

Have I missed something or is a380 also still a possibility for JNB? Perhaps not daily though? Certainly gets over the ETOPS issue...

Tommygun the A380 is a possibility as metioned earlier: the question is, is there enough of them? There maybe once they are all refurbished as there will be an extra one available. If Hong Kong traffic remains depressed through the year, may see diminished demand for one there there, and the same if Haneda remains inflexible on taking A380s. The end of the 747s will see interesting juggling of the long range fleet.
