I work for QANTAS as a second officer on the 767 and we have two different MTOW's for the same type of aircraft - B767-338. The reason is because it cost a lot more to land a aircraft with a MTOW 185t compared to 172t. So QANTAS decided that all our 767-338's didn't need the 185 tonne MTOW, so out of our 19 767-338 only three have the 185tonne MTOW, the other 16 have the 172t limit.
