Why dont any US airlines have any stretch boeings, like 753, 773, 764 etc..
besides the ones that do. DL-764, CO-764, 753 etc..Why are they so rare in the US. No US carriers have 773's. and why are their sales so low these aircraft in the US?

Because in the US, airlines are more concerned with multiple frequencies with smaller planes than fewer frequencies with larger planes, especially to business destinations. That's why you'll will never see just one 380 flight per day flying New York to Boston or Washington, DC.

yea but only 2 US airlines have it. Why are there no other carriers that have it and why only 2 airlines in the whole world. the 764 is a great plane to fly on, and it would probably do well in other international airlines fleets. it could be a good replacement for aging 762's and DC-10's.

Well actually I think the US have the largest numbers of stretched airlliners in the world. It is the only part of the world where you will find so many 737-900s, 757-300 and 767-400s. The only stretched planes missing are the A340-600 (apparently of the reason that no US-carrier ever ordered the 4-holer anyway) and the 777-300.
737-900s are only flown by Korean and KLM outside of America, the 757-300 is only flown by Thomas Cook/Condor and Icelandair
It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong
