Saw this this morning but didn't bother posting as the part about the haredim is basically a PR for LY, which is just a bunch a lies IMHO

Here they talk about 282 seats, i.e 787-9

The new service will be offered three times weekly, with flights departing O’Hare on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday using a 282-seat Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, offering three service classes: Business, Premium and Economy.

Does LY still have 4 788s on order?
Theoretically yes, but they are allowed to upgrade the order to 789 as long as production hasn't started (and conversly from 789 to 788); they've done that upgrade for one of the orders a while back.

235 seats?
Is that the 787-8?
If the 235 number is correct then yes. The 787-9 has 282
