Okay, I was expecting to make a SFO-HKG route with a 767-200ER, I discovered that the -200ER's range couldn't do it, however, I noticed 767-300ER's which have signifigantly less range than the -200ER and they were able to fly it..... rather weird.

Is this plane on any other routes? Cause there is the rule of only two .5 routes on a plane

First: Calm down. There is no need to shout. You could be glad that..., no won't tell you :P

Now, have you ever considered buying different engine variants? It is possible to use the -200ER for this route, too. Don't you know the route research tool? :shock: It shows you which aircraft with which engine can be used for that route. SFO-HKG

Boeing 767-200ER
Type Name   Range   Speed   Seats   Engines
Boeing 767-200ER   7,658   460   290   GE CF6-80C2B7F

Boeing 767-300ER
Type Name   Range   Speed   Seats   Engines
Boeing 767-300ER   7,077   460   350   GE CF6-80C2B7F
Boeing 767-300ER   6,990   460   350   P&WC PW4062

Ok, which -200ER variant did you buy?  :roll:

Hm, look how many posts Seattle already wrote. If he had READ that many posts in the past he would probably know about the engine variants  :P

Don't blame JAWA - blame Seattle today  :lol:

I am offended! :P  I know about the engine types. The plane that I had, had plenty range, but it couldnt fly the route.... it doesnt matter, since now my pax can connect through HND :P . Refering to your other post, I was perfectly calm. :wink:

is that the choices of engine will increase when time goes by???
are there a list show when will the engines be available to choose?

just now i log on to world4 and look at the engine list....it's awesome...
i guess i will use b767-200ER as my main long haul fleet...lol
but Tu-114D is still my favourite one.....though it is not available anymore in world6

Depends on the real life variants (and reliable sources recording them)
