Re: Why fuselage difference between A330-200 and A340-200?

I believe the door configuration of the A342 played a role in this also. Would have been a lot closer to an engine of the size the A332. So Airbus decided to just do a straight shrink of the A333. Which makes sense a lot of sense.

The 779 has the same type rating as the 77W, and a common rating with the 787. The reason the A350s were cancelled is partially because they want simplicity in training and operations . Adding the A35K is detrimental to that goal. I would tend to agree with you on that front. But suppose AA ends up...
