I'm also curious about plans for the four 787-9s, as BR also has 20 787-10 orders in place plus 6 options.

787-10 should have range for Europe, Asia, Oceania, and SEA/YVR, but probably not elsewhere in NA.

That leaves under-served long/thin routes in NA -- perhaps IAD/DFW/BOS/ATL/SAN? Each 787-9 frame could potentially support 3-4x a week service, so maybe four frames is enough.
