They’re all a bit worn looking inside but servicable. Boeing let accountants, and Southwest Airlines decide which plane they mothballed and which plane they developed further. And just look at the thing. Their fuel economy can’t compare to 737 NG/MAX but they’re very usable and Delta can’t expect to get as much value selling their old planes versus operating them. Look at how fast and well Jack Douglas designed and built the DC-3, and how Kelly Johnson and his Skunk Works produced the SR-71 and other great aircraft – also without computers. I was reading Wikipedia about 757, and encountered the information about Boeing researching 757 alternative. The 757 has been flying college football teams cross county including BYU an independent forced to travel more than team’s in a conference, and further. Appalled that you mention EU261 compensation before expressing any concern for the welfare of the passengers and crew who were on board during the landing. The 757 is also beautiful, sort of combination of the best features of the 707 and DC-8, with 2 fewer engines. Planes run strongly in my family, specially in my dad and myself. Finally 757 replacement has been programmed and its LONG overdue! Here are the comparisons between the new 737 MAX 9 and 10 and the A321 NEO and NEO LR against the 757 specs you mentioned. Airbus, for its part, says that its A321, a stretched-out version of the A320, is the more adequate replacement than the 737. As well, Boeing’s engineering team has their hands full. Only low cost carriers would by that dense and cramped jet. So, fine, give us an all-new airframe if you have to: the 797. The 752 for most carriers carry around 180…. Agree completely. 757s were used twice and sometimes 3x daily, and my flights were full or nearly so to or from ORD. Savages! It was a bouncy approach and a hard landing, but I’ve experienced way rougher landings and didn’t think too much of it at the time. But they can never confirm so I don’t book. The 757 makes money flying between New York and Europe, and also between Atlanta and Jacksonville. In Boeing’s defense, the -300 happened when the McDonnell Douglas folks, after the merger,staged a brief coup. That airplane is being marketed as a 757 replacement. There are cargo planes with the capacity to fly the plane off the island in several trips if necessary . And that was before cheap, fast computers. Just thankful to be on the ground and on my honeymoon. ", - Stephen Dubner, Coauthor of Freakonomics. I wouldn’t risk flying on that plane even after a repair. BTW, sidesticks are not required for fly-by-wire; the 777 and 787 both have conventional flight controls but both are fully FBW. o Market estimated at more than 4,000 units If I thought $500 for the 757 was too much and opted for another route with an intermediate stop, that $100 discount PLUS bigger plane and with some potential empty seats rather than fully packed, would be an easy choice. We share our distrust for the 737 in longer routes. It’s about 25 years past the 737 (any configuration) sell by/use by date. with various Twin-aisle comfort for 180-200 people; containerized luggage and cargo; all the range and unbeatable brawn of the 757. The -300 is ugly AF though. The cockpit is quieter, roomier, cleaner. Can anyone tell me, Delta’s 757s are about 22 years old…. More details are expected to be unveiled today. These requirements reduce empty weight and max takeoff weight. It is an interesting possibility, and maybe a smart idea in the long term with rapidly shrinking resources. The captain told me it was the first officers first live landing EVER. It handles real well on ice and snow. The NMA all but has to be a two-aisle jet. By now the plane is — or should be — obsolete. The 767-200, which debuted in 1982, was quickly superseded by the larger -300, many of which remain in service. I wonder if a newer plane would have done better. Airlines will pre order and “LOCK IN” deliveries years in advance. But only the 737-900 comes with a pogo stick to keep it from tipping over! So basically what you’re saying is that a “787-100” is the “all new” design. I despise the 757-300. I’m wondering if it’s the pilots first time landing in the Azores. I was in first cabin and this was pretty pronounced. Travel in the Time of COVID: The news, resources, & information you need. One Mile at a Time is owned by PointsPros, Inc. I’d say in the thousands. Sad!!! Usually a rough landing isn’t big news, but that’s different for last night’s flight from New York to the Azores. https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/analysis-how-boeings-nma-could-shake-up-the-market-446818/. ANALYSIS: How Boeing’s NMA could shake up the market Right. Aircraft Passenger Seat Boeing 757 Triple Economy Airplane Seats. How much runway did you think you used on that one transcon flight to Boston? Just visited Iceland ” Hard Landing” this was an accident. Don’t forget Airbus. Sit back and enjoy the show. Diminished sales amid an airline industry trend toward smaller jetliners led Boeing to end production without a direct replacement, in favor of the 737 family. Copyright © 2011 Patrick Smith / Aerophilia Enterprises, LLCSite developed by LeandroArts. 1.11.2: A cockpit voice recorder (CVR), type L3 Communication (Fairchild) type … Either way, the plane’s basic blueprint, in terms of size, weight, and range, is right there in front of you. Although the flight attendants were apparently spooked by it. I remember it handling the bumps better than other craft of the time. If we can produce an airplane with a range of 4,500-5,000 nm, seating about 220-280 passengers, then there would be an awful lot of demand. They were THE BEST: elegant, powerful and could operate on routes other aircraft just cannot fly. It does take forever to get on and off the thing. ODE TO THE 767. Boeing has their hands FULL. “With 180 passengers on board, the can safely depart from a 7,000-foot runway … and fly clear across the country. I was jammed into the cockpit jumpseat — more of a jump-bench, actually — on an American Airlines 737-800 not long ago, flying from Los Angeles to Boston. Boeing 747s only. Frankly, from a passenger perspective, the differences between the two aircraft are overwhelmed by all the other stuff that an airline does to make a flight a tolerable, poor, or good experience. But from someone who travels steerage, mho to the 757 is “goodbye and good riddance.” It is the most uncomfortable of any of the large aircraft for passengers. It has nothing to do with the airplane, its manufacturer or its design. It’s a very rare aircraft here in the Philippines and everytime I see one (mostly FX’s -200SFs), I’m always eye drooling – big time. Care to point me in the right direction? Talon holds FAA STC approval for the LED Sealed Beam replacement lamps for the Boeing B757 aircraft. Control is switched from side to side with a panel indicator light to signify who is flying. Winds in the Azores can be fierce. I don’t know what the trouble is with operating the 757 for a while longer until a replacement comes out. I agree with you that seeing a 757 these days in UK is a very rare experience. Other than seated (and belted in, of course), there is no place on a longer flight to stretch legs or stretch at all, stand, queue up for the toilet or avoid the flight attendants trying to do their jobs. As Patrick has noted, the as-is 737MAX’s are at a dead end. Quietly handsome, deceivingly powerful. Glad everyone made it off the plane safely. has already outsold the 757’s entire 1983-2005 twenty-two-year production. I have to say that I prefer the 767. I remember similar happening to a 767 which went into service for First Choice Airways & believe is still flying for Tui. I fly on United’s 757-300 weekly. Patrick rightly asks why Boeing’s chosen capacity has to be so high. The approach is over the coast above cliffs. It is basically the aircraft equivielent of Elizabeth Taylor having so many face lifts and makeovers in it’s time. A significant percentage of respondents (24%) want even more than the 5,000 nm. So, maybe Boeing can not be blamed for an “embarrassing” jet. I would doubt if the tooling is gone. I appreciate that modern aviation economics dictate stuffing the maximum number of bodies into the minimum amount of space. Yes Boeing planned to quickly supercede the 767 with the Dreamliner but delays and cost overruns with the program hit the spoilers on that. I think Boeing is conceding to the a321 here knowing that if they build something that size (up to 220 passengers), the a321 (or a322) will take a large chunk with ease from that market, so Boeing is going with something bigger that the a322 would have a harder time matching. While airplanes and flying and travel are interesting the stories about the NMA for the next several years will be about the design process, the business case, manufacturing processes and the engines. Many 757’s are being converted to freighters for FEDEX, DHL, and other shippers. Granted, any packed 3-3 cabin is uncomfortable, but the 757 sure could handle itself, for any experienced traveler who cared to notice. Nor have any of them had seatback video; at best, you get the little overhead monitors to watch the (usually ehhhh) in-flight movie. When people ask me what my all-time favorite plane is, I can argue the L1011. Plus, UA is now an all-Boeing carrier. A321 NEO and NEO LR: lowest 32,200 lbf, highest: 33,100 lbf The damage, although visually awesome, isn’t unreasonable nor surprising for the 757. Actually Delta has upgraded the economy sections on many of its 757s. Boeing just released it’s Current Market Outlook, something they do every year at this time. Antonov An 24 takeoff on runway MADE OF MUD Airbus A380 Boeing 747 can not do this. The simple explanation is that the 737 (-800s at AA) has four engine options on the wing. 240 x $400 = $96,000 per 330/340 flight. To get airlines to pivot off that? Ouch, Flying this flight tomorrow night. It’s not really competitive with the A321NEO. 757: Lowest thrust rating: 36,600 lbf, highest thrust rating: 43,500 lbf We say higher efficiency and lower cost because that sounds great, but we don’t say reduced reserves because that doesn’t sound quite so great. The A339, however, is a direct competitor to the 789 which is selling right now and airlines claim is too large or has too mich range or whatever other mood of the day they chose to display. A good portion of 757’s at DAL and elsewhere are leased through holding companies as well as likely insured..the comments about gusty winds in the Azores is right on. The 757-200 was by far the most popular model, with 913 built. Two-thirds of potential future operators also expect a composite fuselage and composite wings. Boeing will give its loyal customers first dibs. Passenger perspective… With every seat full and seven hours’ worth of fuel, we climbed directly to 36,000 feet and flew all the way to California. Potential benefits of the GLS include significantly improved takeoff and landing capability at airports worldwide and at reduced cost, improved instrument approach The 757 had an edge on maintenance reliability, and was a great joy to fly. Still, I try to savor and appreciate it, best I can. Trump's plane remained at the airport to be checked out, the station adds. Here in London, it is a rarity to see a 757 now. Earn 85,000 Membership Reward® points | Terms Apply. ERNO-BE: The -300’s are actually quite efficient per passenger, and were built between 1999 and 2004. Because the 737 is such a big seller, a 5% improvement in fuel efficiency gains much more fleet-wide than a 5% improvement in a larger jet. The original 757-200 entered service in 1983 … The stretched 757-300 … began service in 1999, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_757#Specifications. They have the expertise and the money, but do they have the will? I have been a passenger on many 737 and 757 trips. Meanwhile, they operate 717s from the early 2000’s/late 90s, and MadDog’s from the 80’s and 90’s. The market estimate was selling between a few hundred and one thousand, which is nowhere near enough to justify the costs. 737 pilots are trained to set it down to prevent single axle shimmy that happens when they try to grease the landing, not an issue with the dual axle 757. With a warming climate, hot and high airports are going to become more common, and the those that currently are hot and high are going to be even more so and maybe inoperable during the hottest times of the year. What a loss her passing will be. We first select the thrust rating engine we want to use (22k, 24k, 26k or 27k lbs of thrust) and then “derate” (reduce the thrust again) that engine to get the “optimum” (least operating cost) thrust setting for the particular takeoff situation. BA flew a 787-8 (200 passengers) from Austin to Heathrow, there’s your MOM by definition… sure it has quite a bit more range, but does it hurt if it’ll mostly be flying at least 4000+ miles (if that will be its primary niche; the transatlantic niche of the 757 that 737s can’t fly)? Both had the new refurbished cabins, and I have to say they were very nice, even in economy. The now defunct Hawaii express flew 3rd generation 737-700. As a point of comparison, Boeing says that it won’t break even on its super-successful 787 program until at least 1,500 aircraft have been delivered. Sure the MAX9 might offer a higher margin percentage wise, but the absolute revenue on the 797 will be better and it definitely will have legs. Also more fuel, increased takeoff weight and on and on. Too bad. I don’t see how it was the weather. They’re working on 1) 737 MAX 9 and 200; 2) 787 stretch (-10); and 3) 777X (two variants). The good-looking airliners are being replaced by monstrosities. In the early 1990’s, there was some thought given to using the 757’s flight deck on the then-new 737NG, but that concept was rejected because of cost, weight, and possible loss of a type rating common to all previous 737’s. It is kind of cool that the new thing is for most people not to recline. The original 767 wing was sized for the long range 395,000 lb 767-200ER and longer 412,000 lb MTOW 767-300ER. If you'd like to participate in the discussion, please adhere to our commenting guidelines. For my day job, I frequently fly the MVD-PTY route (almost 7 hours), operated by CM with 737s. Of course, it does have only a single aisle, which somewhat negates this advantage, but still it’d make the process faster. The flight crew successfully glided the Boeing 767 to an emergency landing at a former Royal Canadian Air Force base in Gimli, Manitoba that had been converted to a motor racing track. While it’s possible Boeing resurrects this idea, I’m fairly sure the reception won’t be any better this time around. A newer variant, the A321 “neo,” might prove to be more suitable, time will tell. Many years ago I was on a flight from Sydney that had a very hard landing in Brisbane. This 797 seems a bit too big; 200-250 /dual-class/? A United Airlines 757-200 performing flight UA627 from Denver (DEN) to Newark (EWR) suffered a hard landing, resulting in the aircraft partially skidding off the runway. A beautiful, easy to fly, well mannered kite – astounding performer with no vices.

Apparently the fire truck at the facility even received new tyres for the event, just in case it was needed! You’re right about that Patrick, but the MAX 9 tops out at guess what? United and Delta fly 757s from their East Coast gateways on eight-hour services to Ireland, Scandinavia, and even Africa. I would add one more. 53 watching. I flew all three (B757, B737, A320). To distribute the aircraft's weight on the ground, the 757 has a retractable tricycle landing gear with four wheels on each main gear and two for the nose gear. "The 757 can be off the ground in 4,000 ft. and under 140 knots," he told us. Its maximum allowable take-off weight is similar to its maximum allowable landing weight. Not economically repairable. The 757 did indeed seem roomier than other single aisle jets. I believe he is referring to the higher fuel load to account for cross country headwinds resulting in a take off weight closer to mgtow. 737 MAX 9 isn’t revolutionary. One of the most addictive aircraft-related sites I’ve seen. Amazing to note the dented fuselage at the nose gear that must have been a hellacious Landing…. You start by stretching it out so that it takes people twice as long to get on and off the damn thing. http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/air-transport/2015-03-11/united-studying-replacements-its-transatlantic-757s. $250.00 shipping. Apparently you were right on the money with the 797 moniker. I was on a delta 767 flight into New Orleans as a AA mechanic in uniform going to fix a AA super 80. One also imagines a cargo version. Airbus and especially Boeing should take big notes on this matter. My nostalgic side would love a new version of the 727. It’s a great way to guarantee he won’t answer you. Thanks again, I really appreciate it. It’s fun to realize how many times I’ve been to the moon and back, according to the math that spells it all out when you enter the mileage for each trip. Air Canada Flight 143 was a Canadian scheduled domestic passenger flight between Montreal and Edmonton that ran out of fuel on July 23, 1983, at an altitude of 41,000 feet (12,500 m), midway through the flight. I’ve done EWR-CPH a few times on SAS (actually PrivatAir) 737. The 757 shares its flight deck with the wider 767, giving the 757 a larger flight deck than the 737. Boeing could deal with commonality quirks with the aircraft if they wished to. You can follow the flight at: But the Boeing 757 is different. – same cruise speed but shorter range. They’ve kept the plane on their rosters so long for good reason: its capabilities are unmatched, and there’s nothing that can replace it. As for the Azores…. The 3/3 configuration with no leg room and a hip-scraping aisle is not where you want to be overnight from L.A. to Boston. It’s way past time to put this aircraft down for good. And what better place to do so than the Azores… I’ve traveled PIX TER and PDL… Since there is no comment section on your Express Blog, I’ll post here about your anti-jet-bridge mini-rant. The Renton engineering, production and assembly facilities were partly converted to 737 and P-8 use but mostly razed and the land sold to commercial and residential developers. Large spacious cockpit and the fly by wire technology really makes it a dream to fly. Another thing to mention with the current firm orders announced at the Paris Airshow for the 737-10 is that they are all aircraft leasers, low cost carriers, and leisure airlines: http://www.boeing.com/commercial/paris-air-show-2017/index.page#/video Friend who lives in PDL and witnessed the landing reported no windy conditions but that the aircraft appeared to be having some issues on the approach for landing. Yes, they did just roll out the 787, but the 70s and 80s were full of rapid R&D. The ground clearance problems when using new high bypass power plants was solved for the –300 series onward with the infamous “dented in” bottom. Boeing should somehow figure a way to rebuild the plane with updates like they keep making to the 737. When we left our hotel in PDL for the airport, it was sprinkling and overcast. I’m also a big fan of the DC-3 – an epic bird. Its a beauty. It includes feedback loops and the ability for self – checking to alert the pilot about problems before they become emergencies. And that was before cheap, fast computers …. True story: when Boeing was developing the 737NG, there were suggestions to use the 757 nose and flight deck. Thanks for the clarification. I equate it to the “new” Ford Mustang…Chevrolet Camaro. Seat quality, scheduling reliability, on-board service, gates, etc., those make the experience, not a difference in width I can’t even definitively identify. Boeing produced a video on the subject which can be found on YouTube, several years ago, after several industry accidents and incidents to 757’s and 767’s. It was overcast. Besides Boeing has already updated it for Fedex. Must have been a rough landing, indeed, as if someone tried to rip a soda can in two. Probably similar situation here given it’s in the middle of the Atlantic. So it won’t be that huge of a write off. I also believe A-321s are used on routes like Moscow to Western Europe. We left St. Maarten’s pinched airport one evening and I was very happy at how steeply we powered away from the mountain at the end of the runway. Check airport live webcam for taxi: Other 787 and 797 similarities and differences will be: So, there is no way to restart a line to make a 757MAX. I’ve never been able to discern it in practice. As you’re probably aware, flights out of KSNA typically depart from runway 20R, which is only 5,701 feet long. Have real answers ever come out in those cases? Will be interesting to see if airlines are serious about this kind of aircraft. A 767NEO should cruise a bit faster than the 767-200’s M.80-M.82. The seating was the same 6-across as the 707, 727, before it, however the 757 felt roomier, spacious, less boxy. What I’m a bit concerned about is the hole Boeing’s digging itself in the short haul/regional market. Had my harshest landing on a TAP LIS-TER flight last winter. It has the fin in front of the vertical stabilizer that looks like an afterthought. I’m retired with about 28,000hrs, stopped counting around 25,000hrs. I would not want to fly that plane over water (or land either) . Rather they were set to design and build an entirely new airplane which in some variant could “replace” the 757. If I recall correctly, another factor in the favour of A32x adoption for larger narrow-body requirements by virtually every major carried outside the USA was that the low deck can hold LD3 ULDs if ordered with the correct door option. It’s now an awful plane to ride in. Boeing, Douglas, Lockheed and Airbus experiences. Looks like the island just got a new Airbnb. They are also also back-driven by the autopilot; when the autopilot commands a turn, both control wheels will move [Patrick, am I correct on this? The Rolls engines have a few quirks but once they got sorted they are bullet proof, the Pratts are good too. Top Videos House. The current 737 is hampered by a configuration suitable for 1960s jet engines but struggles to fit modern high bypass engines. Boeing Yoke. Great article and vindicated my love for the 757. And it’s a great-looking machine to boot. The middle of the market, sitting between true long-haul aircraft and the single-aisles, has always been a tricky segment to address. The 757 is really special plane and I neither see the 737NG along with MAX and even the A321 and A321NEO fully cutting it on replacing it. Maybe it’s the extra-tall supermodel equivalence? Delta could give those planes a facelift and paint job and they would look brand new. Outside of banner ads published through the Boarding Area network, this compensation does not impact how and where products appear on this site. A 757 in the colors of launch customer Eastern Airlines. Sitting for 5 hours in a 757 isn’t any more comfortable than sitting in a 737 if you’re in the middle seat, 2 rows off from the bathroom. They might not have bothered upgrading them because I believe they’re the oldest 757s in the fleet so they might not plan to keep them around as long. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_A320neo_family. Photo courtesy of Rockwell Collins UPS is bringing Boeing 787-style cockpit avionics displays to … as response to my guessing on the hard landing! I would think the A321 is probably the closest competitor/successor to the 757. Plus, it makes for an absolute headache of a boarding and deplaning in that skinny fuselage. It has the same fuselage cross-section as the 707, 727 and 737. Boeing blew it when they didn’t take Airbus seriously in the development of the A321 and, in my opinion, the just as important recognition that passengers are getting wider! The project is nicknamed the NMA, or “new midsize airplane.”, “We are beginning to hone in after a lot of productive conversations with our customers,” said Muilenburg in an interview with Aviation Week. And many of Delta’s 757s, particularly the former NW planes, date from the 1980s. Originally it had a 727-type nose section (Boeing lingo: 41 Section). The data has been of great use for this investigation. Stay connected via social media, or subscribe to our free email newsletter for tips on upgrading your travel and maximizing your miles! Southwest pretty much resurrected the 737 from the scrapheap with huge bulk orders for the 737 classic, NG, and now MAX versions, and Boeing just got sucked onto the 737 with that. The back-of-the-envelope guess is – maybe. The first observer seat folds down across the door. I consolidated the two and cleaned it up. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Segment currency for the B757-200ADV, B767-200ADV, B767-300ADV, or B767-400ER and B757, B767 CFDs requires that a minimum of two segments be flown in any ADV model or B767-400ER and two in either the B757 or B767 CFD configured aircraft during a 90 day period (e.g., MFF). I fly them a lot and haven’t experienced the same problem. Couldn’t have said it better. There is a 757 replacement, it’s called A321LR. However, the author is completely correct: the 737 did not need to get any bigger than the -800 variant. While I would have to agree with the author as to the fact that the 737 was never designed to fill the shoes of a 757, and shouldn’t have to; the plane is versatile in it’s own right. Boeing 757 has one of the best offers to pilots – glass cockpit. For further reading I recommend https://leehamnews.com/?s=mom. I’m sure there’s a simple answer, but I wonder why the 757 (and 767) didn’t lend themselves to updating like the much older 737 airframe? I will grant you that it can get into the air in a hurry. I’ve maintained the 727, 737, 747, 757, 767, all variants, the 757 is and was an amazing airplane for it’s time. At least everyone was safe. I agree with you. It seems they have about 75 737 variants in their fleet about about 75 on order. In any case. Yup. They fly between New York and Paris/London in 757s kitted out in Business Class only. The site also gives you nice metrics on the planes you’ve been on most, and for me the 757 rises to second place on the list (to the 737-300). How does that not make sense??? – maximum systems and avionics commonality. In units, 72% of the large jets (ie. The basic design target was the one-engine takeoff from an airport that is at about 10,000 feet altitude on a hot day – ergo big engines. I’ve had hard landings, but never had a landing like that. We don’t know if that will be the case here, but the number of dents all over the place sure paints a picture of what must have been a really rough landing. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/20/business/flying-climate-change.html, http://www.boeing.com/commercial/market/current-market-outlook-2017/, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-06-19/ge-tells-boeing-it-won-t-share-797-engines-with-two-arch-rivals, http://www.boeing.com/commercial/paris-air-show-2017/index.page#/video, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_737_MAX, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_A320neo_family, https://askthepilot.com/shorttakes/april-7-2017-things-that-go-bump/, http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/air-transport/2015-03-11/united-studying-replacements-its-transatlantic-757s, http://aviationweek.com/commercial-aviation/analysis-what-airlines-want-middle-market-aircraft, http://www.wsj.com/articles/boeing-advancing-toward-developing-new-midsize-jetliner-1467345660, http://aviationweek.com/commercial-aviation/boeings-new-midsize-airplane-low-development-cost-price-are-key, https://ycharts.com/companies/EADSY/r_and_d_expense, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delta_Air_Lines#Fleet, http://aviationweek.com/caring-engines-today-and-future/boeing-s-n. 767 series, some of the most fun to fly both aircraft with a long...
