If the A340-600X is not launched, then Airbus will have a big hole in its product range between the A340-300 and the A3XX (I'm making an assumption that the latter will be launched). One possibility, though, would be to develop a shrink of the A3XX to compete in the 400+ seat market. Airbus must launch either the A340-600 or the A3XX if it wants that 50% share of the market. To do neither would make Boeing even more dominant.
