That is a big part of the equation, but there's more to it. Performance (runway, fuel burn, pax loads, cargo, etc.) also play a very big role in the decision making.

For example, a B737NG gets about 2 percent better fuel burn then the A32x series, it also has somewhat better runway performance but is limited for belly cargo and also has a bit more range. So, depending on the airlines business model, one or the other can make a big difference in the financial and operational performance of the airline. Of course, manufacturer discounts can offset operational costs for a certain period of time, but decisions like these are airline specific.

Great new video from one of my favourite channels goes into depth the battle between Boeing and Bombardier. He does a lot of videos about the aerospace industry, so I was happy to see one on this topic:
