757 replacements
« on: May 24, 2016, 09:31:47 AM »
Hi guys,

I have a good number of 757's coming up to 20 years now.
Would it be a good idea to start replacing them?
The only question that remains them is with what as I can
see any suitable replacement in range vs pax?

Any suggestions?

Thanks Yannick

757 is slightly limited in long range. 767, if you can afford them, are rather nice, and the -400 version kicks ass in terms of flight cost per seat(but you'd better fill them). A321 is not far in terms of capacity, but costs you one arm.

If you need less range and capacity, the 737-900, at the other side of the 757 spectrum, is a sound choice, though prohibitive. Or even smaller, the MD90-55, which is not THAT costly. Though check if it fits your strategy.

TU204 is no more manufactured, I fear. It's the nearest equivalent.

And there is no new plane covering the niche to arrive. The C919(156 seats) is probably too small for your needs, and will arrive in more than 10 years. So sticking to 757 is maybe not a bad choice.

I played the last GW3 in Saudia Arabia, and I think I ended the game with over 200 owned 757s.  They were a great workhorse for all but my LH routes.  The only thing that sucked was the turnaround times, but nothing can match its capacity or range for awhile.  Not sure about the dynamics in Doha compared to Saudia Arabia, but I'd say it could be a good choice to keep 'em if it works.  :)
