If even Etihad, as an operator of the A345 decides to pick up 2nd hand 77Ls you'll know that it's not the best choice on the market.

As Philippine Airlines recently drastically reduced their ambitions and is actively pushing back deliveries of brand new aircrafts including their remaining A330s on order it's not very likely that they will pick up used A345s instead. If they still want to pick up some cheap new metal they can always increase the number of A343s. Unless they want to throw money away of course, something is likely to happen if they would take A345s.

ps.
Etihad will also retire their fleet in 2015, bringing back the number of active A350s to 8.
It's based on an old ideology known as 4 for long range (or something along those lines).

The A340 is also quite an old aircraft considering it's EIS of it's first variant was in 1993, i guess the A340 wasn't as efficient as the newer twin-engined airliners in the air today.

For me it's strange see A330 in American Airlines livery. Actually, in my opinion USA airlines looks strange with planes that aren't american, as airbus or embraer.

How come? The only other U.S. carrier that has A330 in their fleet is Delta Airlines... And no American carrier has the A380.

Oh you mean the "old" US Airways and "new" American Airlines liveries don't look that well on the A330... Hmmm...

"american" air carriers like United, Americans, and so on dont want the a380 because the economics on the plane alone isnt good. High capacity 4 engine planes is "old technology" and are huge risks. Many a380 customers are having issues just filling the planes. The rumor when reading around, in order for an a380 to "break even" it must be filled to atleast 80% capacity. When you are talking 400+ people, the economics of the plane are NOT there at the moment.

United and American invested in the 787 / 787-9 because of the fuel efficiency over a large capacity plane.

Also Boeing main selling point is to bypass major hubs and fly a direct flight to certain cites that wouldnt normally get international flights.

Example is the 787 service from Austin, Tx to London.
