Latam A350's retiring : This does seem unbelievable nearly US$ 3 BILLION worth of aircraft , there is a good new video on this here from good old DJ's Aviation ;
Watched this at the weekend after reading about it. The A350 nickname ' bandit ' due to the ones with a black surround cockpit glass..

Unbelievable? On the contrary, it's eminently believable.

Well it is clearly happening but not quite sure to follow the rationale...

For me the rationale is actually quite evident.

If they are contracting in size they may not have a need for the aircraft. Maybe (if, fingers crossed, there is a rebound) they can get a good price for their A350s. There could be cost savings from fleet commonality. Maybe they have a better financing deal on their B787. Any number of possible factors...
