767 Questions

Sun Mar 03, 2002 7:49 am

Hi I had some questions about the 767-200ER, I was wondering if it was faster or slower than the A340/A330 family. I know that it is a very economical plane, but does it sacrifice power?

I believe the engines that are on the 767-200 could not power the A330, but I do not know for sure. I have never had any problems on the 762 when I have flown on it. It is a great plane, as are the 767-300 and the 767-400.

The 767 was designed mainly with fuel efficiency in mind, as it was designed during the oil crisis. It sacrifices speed for fuel efficiency.

The -67's engines produce much more power than those of the A330. Thats by about 20 thousand pounds. strange, i think.

Ilikecrashes, you better do your math again:

767-200ER: least powerful engine: PW4050 @ 56750
most powerful engine: CF6-80C2B4 @ 57900

A330-300: least powerful: PW4164 @ 65500
most powerful: GE CF6-80E1A2B @ 72500

A330-200 is same or higher powered, 767-300 and -400 are higher but still under 63000lbs
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

Comparing the 762 to the A333 is like comparing apples to oranges. A more appropriate comparison would be the 764 and maybe the 763 vs the A332.

All 7576 family aircraft as well as the 764 typically cruise at .80 mach and may go up to .83 mach. I believe the A330-300/200 family was designed to cruise between .78-.81 with a maximun mach no. of .84. They're pretty close, just depends on how the airlines like to fly them.
