A350. I find the A350-900 the best aircraft between the 787-9 (it's counterpart) but the 787-8 is pretty good as well. (but the A350-900 is larger with a more significant range)

The A350 is more of a 777 replacement than anything. You might as well use both, and not buy A330neos or 777s instead.

this is true. but the A350 was made to compete with the 787 (since the 777 is really old and getting retired)

The A350 does not compete with the 787, but the 777 and 777x. The A350 is much larger than the 787. The 787-9 is 420 where the A350 is 450.

Both.

A350-900 is almost a perfect A330 replacement (but A330-900NEO is a thing, y'know?) Regardless, more capacity in the 440-seat category is always a good thing.
A350-1000 is a smaller 777-300. (480 seats v.s. 550 seats)
 

B787-8 can work alongside B767-300ER and for ultra-long haul flights
B787-9 is a tad bit smaller than the A350-900, so you can use it for smaller long haul flights

B787-10 is just a bad plane unless you really need that many planes in the 440-seat category, but the 787-9 is leagues better and carries only 20 less passengers.

I feel like the B787-10's stats in-game are either off, or the plane was only built irl to keep pilot training consistent. The most efficient engine on the 787-10 in-game still has 42,864 fuel burn and 7,874 miles range with a takeoff distance of 6,875ft, while the most efficient engine on the A330-300 has 40,500 fuel burn over 7,710 miles range and a takeoff distance of 7,302ft.

 


B757-200 best plane you can't change my mind
