Hey

I was just wondering why dosent Airbus lauch a plane that could be a good replacement for the 757, like an A321-300 a plane that has the same fuselage as the 321 and longer range like the 752, like something in the middle from the A321-200 and the A330-200.

P.S. I dont wanna make thia an A vs B thread

the airbus a321 is already superior to the 757. They could simply do a stretched version with increased range and that would be it.

Alberchico - you say that the 321 could be stretched and the range extended to match the 757, but capacity-wise, the 321 is the same size, so it is only a question of range.

The B757 is superior for longer medium and long haul flights due to its range, but the A321 is lighter and therefore offers more efficiency on medium and short hauls. It also offers better cargo loading capabilities and commonality with other A32X family members for many operators. Just look at the growing customer list for the A321, it speaks for itself. If there still were a market for the B757, Boeing wouldn't have closed the line, simple as that.

The capacity isnt the same! The 757 could seat 235 in charter configuration!

Also the 757s take off and landing performance is hard to beat. It got in and out of airports the 321 wouldnt be able to.

I just wish the 757 production had not ended until Boeing was able to offer a 757 replacement product.

The problem is that all these today's and tomorrow's A321 operators really don't give a thought about flying to these certain destinations...

Alberchico,

You'd better have some kind of backup for that kind of statement. I'll even bet there are Airbus fans out there that would debate this. The 757 is just as comfortable flying 3900 nm missions as it is on 390 mn missions. It's flexibility is unprecidented in the industry.

And on a lighter note, is of course, much better looking.  biggrin

You beat me to it Udo.

Can't see how 757 is a technological marvel and A321 is a load of c**p (even though I love 757 as an aircraft).

It also amazes me how people cannot see how products lives can be curtailed by a combination of pressure from below and from above.

747 is a good example - because it is under pressure from 777/A340 below, and now A380 above, through no fault of the 747, it has migrated from being a mainstream product into having to squeeze into a niche between much more modern products.

Sound like the 757 at all?

Also remember that the A321 has a much longer take-off run. America West, a huge Airbus customer, didn't order the A321 because they were worried that it would have trouble departing LAS and PHX on a hot day, which of course are quite frequent in that region.

Why have important B757 operators then switched to A321 and why has Boeing stopped production?

Many operators simply don't need the range. So goes the flexibility argument.

It's a question of what you regard as performance.

Uhmm.. isn't the 787-300 a replacement for the 757 in sorts.. I mean, they are somewhat the same as far as seats and range... but the 783 is more efficient and has better technology.. why keep the 757 open when you have a new aircraft ready to take it's place?

As far as 321 vs 757.. the 321 is a newer aircraft that is lighter.. but even after retirement, the 757 is still a hot aircraft with several airlines looking for 2nd hand aircraft..

I wouldn't be surprised if US doens't pull theirs back from the desert (if they are still there and if they are still in US possession) once/if they get back into good financial standing...

There's no question the A321 is marginally more fuel efficient than the 752 on short to medium haul routes from airports which don't require high performance takeoff and landing capabilities. However, in terms of mission versatility, adaptability, and flexibility, the 752 is the winner hands down.

The fact that Airbus virtually give them away helps as well  Wink

Quoting Udo (Reply 17):
It's a question of what you regard as performance.

Take-off and landing performance is an area where the 757 clearly beats the 321, which struggles at airports with shorter runways due to brakes overheating etc, and the fairly long take-off run of the 321 compared to the spritely 757

Clearly, a replacement isnt needed. If it were, Boeing would still be selling the 757.

The market doesn't want a 757 replacement.

No, they aren't. The 7E7-3 seats 300 in two classes, while the 757 seats between 185 and 200 in 2 classes.

Major 757 operaters have not switched to 321s--if they have they clearly did so because their demands did not require an aircraft as capable as the 757--and/or fleet compatibility. The 321 isn't exactly setting the sales charts on fire--like a previous poster said--there is no need for a 757 replacement, as there are second hand variants still available.

I dont think there was a loss of market for the 757 due to competition from Airbus. Just as it was mentioned in another thread, the 757 would be between the 737-8-900 and the 7E7 which would result in the same outcome as with the 747.

Simply because it has a wider cross-section, which makes the cabin feel more spacious. Just thinking about the passenger-appeal here cloudnine

I have a couple questions.....First

NW and UA are probably the 2 biggest Airbus customers.....Why don't they fly A321's but have 757? Especially NW???

Cargo question- What is the difference in cargo capacity between these two planes. I don't believe I have ever seen a cargo outfit flying A321 (not say they don't), but I have seen 757 (UPS). If cargo was a big issue, NW would be flying A321 instead of 757 because cargo is a huge business and operation for them.

Performance questions- The 757 has always been know for its steep climbs and ability to get to its cruise altitude in a very short time, what is the speed, time and distance for the A321? Also, what are the service ceilings for the two planes and Normal and Max cruise numbers?

Just some ??? for you nutters out there!

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!
