What Is A 757 Stretch?

I was on a TWA flight between JFK and MCO on a 752 back in 1998, and both the F/As and the flight safety card referred to the A/C as a 757 stretch.Being only a young teenager at the time, I reasoned that it must another version of the 757... But now I know that TWA never even ordered 753s, much less fly them, nor did anyone else in 1998!

So what did the F/A mean?

Cheers

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

How about...

Although never built, the 757-100 series was intended to have a shorter fuselage, thus making the 757-200 'a stretch' ?



I don't like signatures...

Doona - Have a look at this. Should explain everything.

Wunala, the point Doona already stated is, that while the 757-300 can be logically named the "757 stretch", TWA only had "short" 200s, the 300s wasn't even around in 1998, so why call the no doubt 757-200 they flew a "757 stretch"


nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Maybe it was just a name that they gave. AA has luxury Liners (how wrong could that be?), QF has 747 Longreach, SQ Megatop etc.
