UA pilots can fly the 757 and 767 at any given time. We are rated and both aircraft and fly it as a common fleet. Sometimes you don't even realize which one it will be until you start flight planning and see that the weights are really high! This happened to me once going out to LIH. We showed up at the airport fully expecting a 757, and then started flight planning and realized very quickly the company had substituted a 767-300 for the 757. The cockpit layouts of both aircraft are very similar but the performance, sight picture, and feel of the aircraft are actually quite different.
Quoting AAH732UAL (Reply 2): -Fun fact, UA pilots that fly the 757 during most of their 9 months between TK sessions fly the 767 sim while the west coast guys that fly the 767 more fly the 757 sim.
Fun fact, but simply not true. I was a west coast guy and I flew the 757 sim a lot.

I believe at Delta, they have pilots that fly the 757 and 767-300 as one common fleet, but I believe that the 767-400 is separate from that. At Continental the 756 pilots fly the 757-200, 757-300, 767-200, and 767-400 so not totally sure why Delta would separate the 767-400 pilots.

Quoting Addi375 (Reply 8): so if u fly a 75 trip, you get paid the 757 rate and if u fly a 767 trip u get paid that rate?
I assume you are inquiring about DL. If so here's your answer. The 757 and 767s other than the -400 share the same payscale. The 764 is a seperate and higher payscale. Captains and FOs on Intl. flights get $5/hr and $3/hr more than their respective domestic counterparts flying the same equipment.
