Personally I’m suprised they never redesigned this to be a 2 engine plane... 777 launched in 94. 17 years and they didn’t do jack to compete with the 777?

Maybe they did and the airframe would have had to have had too much rework to justify the expense.

well you see the old Europe has still plenty to teach the rest of the world. A340 was - and still - is a great airliner. Btw, the 787 doesn’t seem to do too well. Let’s wait and see “Old Europe” response, I can hardly wait....
