Re: A300/A310 v 767

Presumably Britannia Airways looked at A300/A310 in their 1980 widebody plans? Always thought it was odd Monarch were quite late to the party ordering the A300-600s then giving some up to Compass. Suppose the demise clues were there with an oddball DC-10 and ultimately revisiting a 767-300.
