With the launch of the A330-200, the shortened A330, it is clear that
airlines certainly like the twin-engine airplanes.  Before the launch,
Airbus already had the A340-200 to cover this market sector---the A340-200
which has four engines and an extra 800 nm range above A330-200 (i.e.,
6400 nm for the A330-200 vs. 7200 nm for the A340-200).  IMHO, the
A330-200 may generate some sizable orders that the A330 program badly
needs.
