DL and CO fly the 764er, and I doubt we will be seeing the 764lr. With the new sonic cruiser coming out I doubt that Boeing will want to build a plane about the same size, but slower speed and less range.

The A332 still could fly longer, than the B764LR. The sale success of this paper aircraft wasn't really that big. So, I doubt, that Boeing will launch this bird again. On the other hand the B764ER is apparently very well suited for the needs of large US airlines. CO and DL are apparently very happy with it.

Isn't there an African Airlines (forgot which one) orderd the 767-400LR ? I remember reading somewhere that the 767-400LR will have Rolls Royce Trent 600 engines (same as on the proposed 747X). Was the order cancelled ?

Yes it was Kenya Airways that had a letter of intent for the 767-400LR on the provision that the project was launched. Despite a 'heavy' marketing campaign for the aircraft, only Kenya showed any interest at all. The project was shelved the same day as the 747 Stretch projects which received no letters of intent, and the project leader has now moved on to the sonic cruiser.

Boeing will have sucess with its new 764LR.
This plane is the first choice for Airlines for which the 747 and 340 is to big. The MD11 was a nice idea but in passenger configuration not very economic. The 764LR
will fill a gap in the Boeing products. With 763LR, 757-200LR and the new 764LR Boeing is well prapared against A340 and A330
