as far as I know, your flight with the EA
757 should have taken place in early 1983, since the first ever 757 revenue flight took place with EA
on Jan 1,1983.
My first flight with the 757 took place in 1995 aboard United's N510UA, but I don't remember much since I was only 12...however in summer 2003 I flew Aeromexico's N801AM and N806AM, and I enjoyed the spacious cabin with amazing takeoff and climbing performance, even from the hot-and-high MEX
airport. It's a plane for everybody, for people that enjoy aircraft performance and for who don't care about it but just about comfort. Even if in Italy (where I live) they are not so popular, I like them very much, and I hope that they will be around for many years to come!
