Cost of construction, cost of fuel, cost of maintenance. I suspect the significance of each varies with role, but there's a reason why the A340 never really took off (bad pun), but the A330 is doing great (fewer engines to maintain, and they're more efficient). Also, you've basically just reinvented the Boeing 707.
