- A330-200F Sales Slower Than Expected
- 777F Demand Strong
- Since A330-200F Launch, 767F Pulled In More Orders*
- Future 777F Plans Laid Out With 777X
Despite the availability of airplanes for conversion, the 767 Freighter has not suffered any “knock-out” blow by its bigger A330-200 Freighter rival, even though in recent years, the passenger market for the 767 dramatically waned and tapered off as the A330 became and is still an operators favourite for a variety of missions.
As at the end of April 2012*, the A330-200F backlog was just 47 units, marginally ahead of the 767 Freighter with 42 units. The 777F however, remains the most popular mid-to-large size freighter with a backlog of some 68 units.
With 59 deliveries*, one more than the entire backlog for the A330-200F, the 777F is also quietly stealing the thunder away from its bigger 747-8F sibling.
