While about the same size, the A330-200 has significantly greater range
than the 767-400ERX:

  Model        A330-300  A330-200  767-400  767-300
  Seats        295-335   253-293   245-303  218-269
  Range (nm)   4,800     6,400     5,650    6,125

I also thought the A330-200 was bigger than the 767-400ERX, but they
obviously are about the same size in terms of seats.  Still, I think
the range of the A330-200 gives it a healthy advantage over the 767.
