Grief Tim bit harsh mate. It seems you are misquoting a bit. If they make less they will sell less therfore there will be a drop in sales. Wondering why the change in emphasis seems valid to me?

Not sure how I'm misquoting, I used the same words in the same order from Mogwire?
The tone and meaning of the Mogwire article is clear, it presents the revised production arrangements as if they were a response to a drop in Trad sales and orders, whereas in fact the revised production is nothing of the kind.
By contrast, it seems to me to be in response to the massive popularity of the MTW and the accompanying glut of orders, plus of course the new Plus 8 which has got over 80 orders already.
It's possible that trad sales are falling as people convert their orders to MTWs or Aero-based models, but there is no evidence of that from the BP article. Much more likely is that trad demand is continuing much as it always has done, at around 400 - 500 units per year, but that demand for Aero models and MTWs is burgeoning.
