Hey 767-400er. I started this new topic because I thought you might miss my response to your comment on the earlier Lufthansa 767 discussion. The key element to my message and the article, is Lufthansa apparently wants the 767-400ERX. The "X" model has 2000 gallons more fuel than the -400ER and this was apparently what makes it kind of attractive. Anyway, I appreciate your comments.

I never heard of the "X" model...
The 767-400 is already a "ER" model. Where did you find the info on the "X" model?
Or is it a Lufthansa 'Wish List'?

There have been discussions on a longer range 767-400 for quite a while. It would help on an L.A. to Europe market. I don't recall where I have read the discussions but I do stay up on Aviation Week & Space Technology and Flight International (as well as about 10 other aviation periodicals). It is felt that while the 767-400ER is good for Delta and Continental, others have found the range to be a little less than they would have liked. Specifically, I have read comments that if the -400 has the range of the 300ER, then there will be more buyers. Lufthansa by the way, said it was the 767-300ERX (a longer range derivative of the -300ER under study) would be the great transpacific aircraft. I misquoted the article in my earlier comments.

Both 767-400ER and 767-300ER have both close to equal range with the more advance on the aerdynamics and (i think extra tanks).

Next time I see something referring to the derivative models, I be sure to send them to your attention. I think you have the best nickname on the forum.
