Re: Why is the A330 still in production but the 767 isn't (for pax)?

A330was envisioned in the late 80s not 70s. Sure its based off of the A300 but it’s a vastly different aircraft. The 767 is simply an older smaller and simply less efficient aircraft compared to the A330 and that’s why it’s disappeared everywhere in the world except TATL routes.
