Maybe that is all they now can afford when it comes to «new» aircraft?

What advantage does an updated 767-4 have over a 787-9? Both hold just over 400 people according to Wikipedia. Not going to hit the A321/757 market.

The 767 is probably much more cost efficient at shorter ranges.

It could be a $100 million advantage or more.
