|Quoting Gregg (Reply 5):|
Althogh Boeing did consider a shorter 757-100, boeing stopped calling thier initial models -100 since most ofthe -100 models were not succesfull
|Quoting Kappel (Reply 6):|
But wasn't it also because with for example the 777 they were considering a 771? They scrapped that idea because the a/c would be too heavy.
|Quoting Kappel (Reply 6):|
Personally, I hate the recent trend with Airbus and Boeing to start with the 800 series (787-8/A388). Maybe Boeing will name the 783 the 787-200 or something, but it seems Airbus must have the 8 as much as possible in the designation of the a380.
|Quoting AirworldA320 (Reply 11):|
Now would like to see a shrink of the 767-200!!!
|Quoting Planesailing (Reply 9):|
No, that isn't why. Boeing started with the -200 model on the 757, 767, and 777 to leave the door open for a shrink at a later date. At some point, a shrink of all these aircraft were considered, at least conceptually.
|Quoting Ultrapig (Reply 16):|
So just exactly how does a 757-200 compare to a 737-900x in tersm of seats cabin size cargo capaicty and range. It alwasy seems to me that the 757 cabin is larger and taller than a 737 when I board one is that an Illusion? I know the widths are the same are the heght's the same

Prototypish? Nonsense. Explain the multiple Airbus models that start with -100, then. They don't seem prototypish to me.
|Quoting Bomber996 (Reply 17):|
Yeah, I've always noticed the 757 to be a MUCH more comfortable plane then the 737. right up on par with the A32X's for me. Why dose it have this illusion, because people on here have been constantly saying that they're the same.
|Quoting GQfluffy (Reply 25):|
Not sure why you say that. The exterior fuselage width of the 707, 727, 737, and 757 are the same. The interiors are within an inch of each other.
