A question came to my mind, since I believe that it is possible for a 757 pilot to easily switch to a 767-200/300, is it also possible for him to switch to a 767-400 and 777? 764 and 777 have the same cockpit layouts plus these layouts (the lcd-screens) allow a presentation of the older style 757/767 classic style cockpit (I think), but I would suggest that the flying characteristics of the 757 compared to the immensly larger 777 are quite different.
Can anybody give a comment on this?

FAA issues a common B-757 B-767 type rating... you train on one and you will receive the other as well, even though you train only on one (or the other type)... - I got a B-707 B-720 type rating... I also got a LR-JET type rating (which I did on a LR-24, but it covers 23, 24, 25, 28, 29, 31, 35, 36 and 55)
In the old days, the DC-6 and DC-7 were common type rating as well...
It was considered to include the B-777 with the B-757 and B-767, but the FAA decided not to include the B-777...
