Airbus A321 offers:

- Entry doors aft of First Class so First Class is not bothered
- Lavatories conviniently located in middle location of the cabin so carts are not in the way and passengers don't need to transit first class
- 4 wheel optional landing main gear to spread additional weight to fly longer ranges
- Wider Cabin

Boeing dropped the ball and needs to build a real 757 replacement, not a stretched 737 crampjet

I'd prefer Boeing over airbusted any day.

But the 787 is a crippled jet with a battery patch in place.
