Well, airlines would have to face a hard desicion making process on which one to go for. I think it'd be more a matter of principle. British Airways for instance, would definitely go for Boeing 767-400 - they are so commited to Boeings. Whereas AirFrance would probably chose Airbus 330.

As for me, I'd love to fly on both of them :).

I think that the 767-400 is the better aircraft. Airlines that already operate the 767 will likely choose to expand their fleet to the 400 series aircraft. As for Air France choosing the A330-200, why have they recently ordered the 777-200IGW when they already had the A340-300?

Probably because Boeing 777 is a GREAT aircraft itself. Also, Boeing 777 has become something that attracts customers by only its designation. If I was to chose between two airlines one of which flies A340 and the other one B777. I'd most likely go for the one with B777.

You cant compare a A330-300 to a 767-400. I think the one you mean is the 200 version of the Airbus. I guess it depends on the airline. But I think given that BA bought some A320 this year if there 767 where up for renewal I think they would not hesitate to buy the A330-200 for there fleet. As for Air France buying the 777 they needed a larger aircraft for the CDG-JFK route so the 777 is a little bigger than the A340. Besides they also operate 767.

British Airways did not buy the Airbus A320 family over the 737NG because they were better. British Airways bought the A320 family because of a great engine deal they got from IAE. IAE will practically do all the maitience on the engines for free. British Airways also ordered the A320 family because they could not get the 737NGs delivered soon enough. The backlog for the 737NG is unbelievable, and the waiting time for the 737NG was longer than the A320. As for buying the A330, British Airways stated on the day after buying the A320 that they would buy 16 more 777s and were committed to an all Boeing 747, 767, 777 long haul fleet with new orders for future 747 and 777 models to be made when they were offered.
