757-200; what next:... 737-800?
« on: April 14, 2014, 10:43:55 AM »
I am exchanging my old 757-200's for 737-800's. I have been doing some calculations first and I can see profit-wise it is ok to do this, although my 737-800's are not giving the profit I want them to give.  I am doing this fleet-renewal mainly because there is no real successor for the 757-200. Even on the several Boeing-wiki sites I read Boeing never intended to build a next generation for the 757-200. When I try to plan the 737-800 on a route, starting from about 2200 NM , up to 3000 NM I mainly get the advice to use another aircraft for that distance, or at least there are pax-limitations. From what I read on the RL use of the 737-800 there are several companies using the 737-800 for flights between 2000 and 3000 NM. So why getting that negative advice on flights over 2200 NM
Now I start to wonder, is there a better option than the 737-800 as a successor for the 757-200, and that besides Airbus, but preferable within the Boeing family? Or?

Thanks

737NG series like you use is the correct successor, maybe except the 767.

If you don't have competition the warnings about too small aircraft can be ignored. If you have competition you must use bigger aircraft. That's how it is in AirwaySim. :/

Thanks Curse)..sure, there is competition  :o  but it is not always that I get the warning-messages. To go after the 767 gives me some hesitation. I always have a feeling, Boeing is still producing them because there is nothing else available, but that can be just me. The 787 might be the best option in the future, who knows...
And of course, the 777 series is a bit too much on a 2200-3000 flight my guess.

If the message appears or not depends on year ingame, how far the destination is away and how many PAX are available on the route. It gets worse each year (= allowed range until message appears decreases).
