I've noticed from photos of both of these aircraft that the windows on the new 764 are much rounder, like those on the 777, than the windows on the 762/3. Can anybody confirm this? I have never liked the windows on the 767, very small and square..

You're correct. As you suspected, the windows on the 764 are '777-style.'

Boeing went with the round windows on the 764 because in saved a few hundred pounds of weight. Don't ask me how, but it does.

I have never noticed how small the windows are on 767s (havent been on one for 5 years) but are they they same as 757 windows? If yes then those are fine. What I dont like are the windows on CRJs

Yes the 767-400 windows are much rounder as are the 777 windows, but I don't know if they are any larger then the old style.

Here is the difference shown up close...

If there is an advantage to these rounder windows, I wonder why they were not incorporated on the 737NG and the 757-300?

Well the advantage of the bigger windows is evident. For spotters it is awesome for when you are taxiing out.

You want large windows? Try the aft cockpit window on the DC-10. It's HUGE! More than three feet tall, and almost as wide. The one on the right side is partially hidden by the FE panel, but on the left side it's right next to the jumpseat. Sit there and your entire left wall from knees to above your head is one big window. It's a he11 of a view!

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

Windows on the 764...I don't think so!
Picture this. Final approach, CAT III, 200m RVR [Runway Visual Range]. At 50ft altitude, Captain desparately searching through the windows for the runway. . . . this program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down . . . . AAAAHHHH!!!!!
