>Boeing claims 767-300ER design range is 7,120.
>767-200ER, they claim, can do 7,680.  USAir has these from Piedmont.

Six of USAir(ways)' 767-200(ER)s came from Piedmont.  Another six came
after the merger, though they may have been ordered by Piedmont.

With regard to range, Boeing's quoted maximum is for the highest gross
weight option (probably with whatever engines give the greatest range).
At 351,000 lbs MGTOW, USAirways' 767-200(ER)s are far below the
395,000 lbs maximum, and have commensurately less range.
