Today's (Dec18th) `Flight Int'l' magazine has a decent little article on
Boeing's efforts to get Delta to launch the 767-400. These efforts
indicate that the 6m stretched 767 proposal is targeted at the
A330-200 (which lends credence to the A330-200 size/range class).
It also means that if Boeing is doing this Delta is not interested in
any A340 or 777 order after all(?).

Interestingly, the 767-400 will use the same engines as the -300
(62,000 thrust) has available.
Also interstingly, to those who have posted about boring twin jets
with no distinctive features,  the 767-400 is proposed with 2.44m
winglets. Yum.
