Author Topic: replacement for 757? and generally curious about all the 787-s...  (Read 1236 times)

I wonder what could be a good (if any) replacement for the 757-s as the model is becoming 30 or so years old.
I have 200+ of 757s and so far they had a stellar performance for me, some making in excess of $1mm per week in profits even with fule in $900-s. So its not that they don't perform but rather I am becoming curious if there could be a better plane already on the market.

However as I look, dont see anything obvious.
737-800 lacks the capacity and does not have the range
737-900 / 900ER could almost match the capacity with high density seating but cost about the same and still lack the range beyound 3100nm while I have lost of flight between Europe and Americas in 3300-3900 range
787-3 costs almost twice, has higher fuel consumption, lower range, more crew, classified as extra large, requires 30% longer runway - and all this for just 20 extra pax...

Anyone has a better idea?

PS: been puzzled by 787 series from a pure stats point, just dont seem to be finding the benefits of them. 787-8 literally has no meaningfull advantage over 767-ER except that it offers 7000nm range vs 6000, but how many routes like that you have in reality?

stick with the 757s. just order new ones to replace your fleet
