B77W and A380 watch: second-hand frames

With WW revealing talks on 2nd hand B77W frames was more advanced than the A380, I stumbled across an obscure tweet. (Caution: could be meaningless).

"Sources suggesting that a deal to close an additional 2 leased B77W airframes for IAG will be concluded this week... Interesting..." posted by @NDH37087

Question is where will the frames come from? Kenya Airways handed its unwanted compatable 77Ws to TK.

Air India, maybe?

Well extra 77W frames will come in handy. I reckon 6 more of these and around 5 more A380s will support long-haul expansion at BA until 2020 alongside arrival of B787-8/9/10s and A350-1000s.

As long as the 2nd hand aircraft are identical to the current fleet product-wise.
