Is it that disappointing they're dropping the A359? By my reckoning, they will probably go to an A333 and A339 combo, but have more aircraft than they would have had with the A359. Henceforth they would have more frequency and capacity overall, and it'd keep more people employed.

I appreciate the sentiment of feeling as if there's no progress in terms of equipment, but I feel that bolstering the A333/A339 fleet would be better for numbers and the economy in general. Plus, the A359 is probably too much plane for EI in the winters, whereas the A339 would probably suit them very well indeed and maybe even the A338 if they were feeling bold enough to go to the far east, or Hawaii (purely theoretical, pie in the sky etc.).
