For an aircraft of it's size and it's ability to operate remarkably from short fields, such as SNA's 5,700 foot runway with a full load, coast to coast, is amazing! Can you think of any other 200 passenger airplane that has this flexibility?

In all honesty, there aren't really too many other 200 passenger airplanes out there. B767-200? A321-200? Thats as close as we get. So I'm going to have to say...

Yes it really is the only 200 passenger aircraft capbale of such feats. Of sourse the 762 and 310, but they offer more capcity and operate at much heavier weights unabling them to operate some places the 752 operates. also the 762's wingspan wouldnt allow it at Sna gates

The C-17 is in a different classification, but an extraordinary aircraft, just the same. My mistake, I SHOULD have said most flexible performing AIRLINER.

Yep, I knew what you meant John. Just couldn't help throwing the C-17 into there.  Big thumbs up
