Kenya Airways would have been the third airline, and probably the only non US operator, to order the 767-400 if they went for it. I remember they were considering buying a few of those, but they chose instead the 300ER and the 777.
Yes, that's true. Japan Airlines and Ethiopian are the only two airlines having 767's in PAX config, 300ER's, waiting to be delivered. There are not that many orders to be filled, but the 767 production line is still open for all three variants, 200/200ER, 300/300ER and 400ER(there is no 400 non ER
). As mentioned, Continental ordered 10 brand new 767-200ER's in the late 90's, a while after the last of the 200 Series aircraft had been delivered. American still has a few 300ER's on option but I don't think they'll convert any more of those to firm orders because they have been struggling financially, to avoid filing for bankruptcy, and now there is the all new 7E7. However you never know, they can still convert a few option to firm orders, if the economy shapes up and they need additional aircraft before the first 7E7 is available. It doesn't look like the civilian 767 in PAX config will continue to be built once all current remaining orders are filled. In that case, Boeing will officially announce the end of the 767 production line once all military variants are built.
The Boeing 767 holds the distinction of being the first aircraft to be approved by the FAA for ETOPS flights, in other words overwater operations.
