American just started flying the A300-600 JFK-LHR.  Few would consider
that a short-range route.  All of Delta's (ex-Pan Am) A310s were used
for even longer trans-Atlantic routes.  While they certainly don't
have the range of a 747-400 or A340, the A300 and A310 are not exactly
short-range aircraft in their latest forms.
