Anybody curious why both Airbus and Boeing hasn't created any replacement whatsoever for the most sucessful B767's model? I know people would argue about A330-200 or B787-8, but counting number of seats and configurations, They would need to reduce the plane length by 4-5 meter to get the exact same seat numbers for the next gen seating for B767's capacity. Why won't they created shortened A330-200/B787-8 with 6 type 1 door in particular?

Because it was pointless, the A330 had a near monopoly in that area and was miles ahead, so boeing kinda just dropped it and moved to the 787

How about airbus and shrinking the A330-200 to fill the gap between the 180 seater to 250 seater? You know, like A300-600.

Seeing as more and more people are traveling by air, that means customers of the 76W in the 80s are likely filling more seats now than they used to. As a result, we're seeing larger aircraft. See: BA.

I believe Airbus was developing a direct replacement for it. Called the A330-200L or something, but airlines was unimpressed and didn't want it. Instead airbus created a whole new aircraft, the A350. I will try and find a article somewhere...

Undeveloped variants

A330-200Lite

See also: Airbus A350 XWB

To compete with Boeing's 7E7, Airbus offered a minimum-change derivative called the A330-200Lite in 2004. As the name indicated, this proposed variant would have had a lower maximum takeoff weight of 202 tonnes (445,000 lb), coupled with de-rated engines, giving a range of 7,400 km (4,000 nmi). It was aimed at Singapore Airlines, who had looked to replace its Airbus A310-300s.The variant was also to be a replacement for Airbus A300-600Rs and early Boeing 767s. Airlines, however, were not satisfied with the compromised aircraft; the company instead proceeded with an entirely new aircraft, the A350 XWB.


From Wikipedia, not accurate but the best I could find
