It's not like airlines couldn't have ordered a 767-200 with wings and avionics from the -400. They didn't because it would have been a horrible investment. Anyone want to guess which aircraft United is retiring next?
Delta has a good track record of buying a/c that are not new provided the offer a worthwhile return upon investment. I am sure DL has engines that are common upon some of their aircraft that Continental had. P.S wings of a 400 on a 200 would not make much sense. The 200 wing is a bit oversized as is.

We're talking about a plane with the CASM of a 767-300 and the RASM of a 737-900. They are worthless.

Looks like Boeing 737's have greater issues than just an advance concept Airbus A321 narrowbody.

The Bombardier C-Series is just around the corner for the 100 to 150 seat market.
