Good range for charter ops, fairly high capacity (-200 = 239 max, -300=280 max) . Can operate from quite short runways, cheap to operate compared to some other a/c. Something like that?

When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

757 is ultimate acft for short and midhaul charters. it have good capacity being all-economy configured, it have enough range (for european companies) to operate f.e. any leasure destination in Europe, North Africa, Canarian, Middle East.
also 753 is known to have cheapest seat-per-mile costs of any narrowbody acft.
it have capacity comparable with 767 but maintanance is much less expensive.
