The following information on the 767-400ERX is from the 6 January 1997 edition
of Aviation Week and Space technology
             767-400ERX             767-300ER
wingspan      179ft                  156 feet (6 foot tip extension and 8 foot
                                               winglet added on each side for
                                               -400ERX)
Total length  201ft                  180ft     (132 inch fore plug in fuselage
                                                121 inch aft plug)
Tail height   55 ft                   52ft     (same tail, but landing gear is
                                                3 feet longer)
width         16.5ft                  same
typical pax   245 (3 class)           218 (3 class)
              303 (2 class)           269 (2 class)
Cargo volume  4905 cf                 4030 cf

Engines       CF6-80C2/RB211-524G/H or PW 4000  (same)
Fuel capacity 24140 gal               same (abput 90000 liters)
Range          6500sm/10400km         7050sm/11300km
MGTOW         440,000lbs/200000kg     412000/187,000kg

Typical field length requirements at MGTOW goes up about 2000 feet,
worst case is about 11,500, which suggests in high/hot conditions
there is likely to be significant payload penalty.

The 767-400ERX is claimed to offer comparable capacity to the A330-200 with a
directoperating cost about 5% lower.

In addition the the aircraft is being fitted with uprated Air Conditioning and
APU,and in increase in onboard power generation to 120KVA from 90 KVA (I would
assume from VSCF alternators).
