When you look at what they are doing, I donít think they have any idea!

The mob from TN who infested QF didn't waste much time getting their hands on 767s for domestic routes. They even bought a few from BA when Ansett collapsed. The 767 wasn't ideal for domestic but they sure made a lot of money. To make it more profitable, some 767s were certified to operate at two different MTOWs: the lower on domestic routes, the higher on long haul routes. The 787 might be 'just right' in the circumstances.
