Norwegian leases A340-300 to bridge the B787 gap

Norwegian will wet-lease two A340-300 from HiFly to bridge the gap until the B787-8 will arrive after the battery problem is solved. How will that impact their operations? Interestingly, the two A340 are from a batch originally flown by Singapore Airlines, then given back to Boeing in exchange for B777’s. Boeing sold them to BBAM and they leased the aircraft to Emirates. The two A340-300 are now due to arrive at HiFly. So in the end Boeing has to lease Airbus aircraft to airline customers to make up the problems with the B787.
