Oh, I don't know. I think a 767-300ERX as described would be quite
attractive, and may also give a boost to the so far less-than-stellar
767-400 sales. As things stand now, the 767-400 is a bit of an orphan,
being sufficiently different from the existing 767s that commonality
isn't a strong selling point. Give airlines the option of pairing new -
400s while also upgrading their existing 767-300s (or moving up a size
notch, if they're also operating long-range 757s, for example) and it
would become much more attractive.
