I think I mentioned the five-sevens in a different thread a couple of weeks back. The number 18 seems a little high but 6 or 8 additional used five-sevens is what my HP deep throat told me. That should happen this year.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

It's safe to say that they wouldn't be new 757s, but right now is probably a pretty good time to pick up some used ones, so that's not such a crazy idea. Resale values and lease rates for a particular aircraft type generally decrease substantially when production of that type winds down, so that may very well be happening with the 757.

The only conceivable reason to delay closure of the 757 line is if HP desires 757-300s. I don't believe there are any parked and they aren't scheduled to make any more. Boeing extended the MD-83 line beyond the original closure date when they received a late order from TWA for 23 aircraft in 97 or 98. I suppose 18 757-300s is as good as 23 MD-83s?

Yes, I've both a thought and a comment. How about NOT posting something that's only a rumor when you don't even cite a source? Without giving us one, for all we know, you very well could be making it up. Now tell us what you're basing this thread on if you want it to have any credibility. Sorry to be blunt but without quoting any foundation for your thread, how the heck do you expect us to take it seriously, even if it's only about a rumor? Thank you.

According to Airfleets.com only four or five of the former National 757-200 remain parked at Marana. I believe 5 of the 18 aircraft in the National fleet when ops were discontinued are in China being converted to freighters.

I got bitched out last week by Chris Kilroy over on Airdisaster.com for having the gall to complain that he hasn't updated his list in 18 months. He says that I have no right to complain since I never offered to help. So I sent him an update of about 20 scrappings that he didn't have updated... he's been quiet since.
He claims that there is a major update coming soon, with 10 volunteers working on it. I think it would have been easier just to start a new list....

About time. There were lots of rumors a few months ago and nothing happened. This might mean that HP's new transcon routes were a success and perhaps they will start more of them with these new planes.

How many more Airbuses are the still waiting for on their current order? 78 more aircraft is a huge increase in their fleet, where else could they expand to. Could we see alot more international service from them...and maybe, possibly some overseas routes? Or maybe they'll use the increase in capacity to start a new hub.

I am not sure which one of those new hub and already remember with CMH back of year ago and they are no longer use them. Also, I think about LAX is doing well with the transcontinental flight from LAX-JFK/BOS.
