When Boeing built the 767-400, why was the cockpit layed out a 747/777 style? it has the all glass cockpit, has a MCP like the other 767s & 747s,
but obviously as its a twin engined aircraft only has two thrust levers so its like a cross of a 747 and 777 in ways.
but why didnt Boeing make it the same layout as the other 767 series? to me it doesnt make sense, i read on the airliner.net website crews can still fly all 767 series (also like how some crews fly say a 737-300 one day and -700 the next) but wouldnt the pilots need two sim assesments as its almost like a different aircraft instead of just 1 every six months?
