Replacing the 767 with the 787 makes perfect sense, after all, it was designed to do just that. Replacing the 744's though with it makes no sense. What are you going to do with the 100+ passengers left behind? Fly them on another aircraft? There goes any savings the new plane gives you. Or maybe they'll just decide to use another airline, and BA will lose the business. The 777-300ER's are really the only planes with comparable capacity to the 744's, You can use the A380's if the aircraft fits at the airport pair, and can sustain the extra capacity it will provide to be more economical.

Thy might be able to operate 2 787s for about the cost of one 744. So they'll be able to replace the jumbo with the newer more efficient plane, and be able to increase frequency and/or serve mote destinations directly. That was the point. Destinations with greater travel demand could be serves with the 777 (as you pointed out).

"What are you going to do with the 100+ passengers left behind?"

If the seats were empty, you put the money spent on fuel in your pocket (figuratively as it is the airline's account that beneits).
If those last seats were being sold at discount in order to not fly an half empty plane, then there will be less discounting.
If the plane is regularly full, then the route might support 2 787s flying that route instead.

or they could use a 777.

But the choice to use the 787 is either to add or maintain frequency or the route migrate bit have been profitably supporting the 744.

or they could use a 777 if the router can support it.

But the choice to use the 787 is either to add or maintain frequency or the route MIGHT NOT have been profitably supporting the 744.
