Which 330? Maybe the flying shed (Shorts 330). Definitely not the A330 especially the -200 it's stats put the 767-400 into the shade!
I'm not bagging Boeing by the way as I like the 767 in -200 and -300 very much and I really like the 777 in both -200 and especially in -300 form with those Trents (pity Qantas haven't bought any yet). However I really think that Boeing has got it wrong with the 767-400 but I suppose that time and the market will tell.
