Given that the B767 is now in use all over the world, surely the question of
LD2 or LD3 containers will not be uppermost in the minds of airlines when it
comes to selecting between the B767 and Airbus types. And while the A330-100
might replace the A300-600R and A310-300, there are some customers, notably
Singapore Airlines, which are looking for more cost effective replacements
for their A310s (although in the case of SIngapore Airlines, who knows what
is going on - the 777s were supposed to have won the A310 replacement
competition)
