I think it would make sense for BA/British Airways to order the A350-1000 because it would take advantage of the same technology already used in the A380-800 and be good for the environment, it would also benefit BA's long haul network system as not everybody wants to be flying the 747-8I or/ B787-10 that Boeing have on offer at the moment and the key difference will be what their passengers and crew want to fly in 5/10 years from now.
