What for ? if you increase the capacity you will have two aircraft on one
market segment (A330NG and A340-200/300) and same for range. Financially
speaking it is not very easy to amortize. I remind you the A340NG are to
compete with 747, Boeing claiming that its customers use it for the range
not for the capacity
