That seems hard to believe, and would have also implied 3 aisles. I can’t begin to imagine the certification issues.
I would have guessed at that point, an entirely new fuselage would have made more sense.

Maybe there is a possibility to reduce wall thickness (isolation etc.) and gain a couple of inches, like Boeing is doing on the 777 -> 77X?
