They were studying this very configuration about four years ago. I don't know if they got as far as trying to solicit launch customers. I think the thing that killed it was economics; not that the beast couldn't be developed, but a determination was made at the time that they couldn't sell enough units to repay the development cost. Also, back then, there was the possibility of a joint development with Airbus, and that has since gone by the wayside. --- David K.
