757-200 Replacement - Boeing's Options

Thu Apr 26, 2012 9:12 pm

We've heard that Airbus will use the A321NEO as its 757-class product offering.

What can Boeing best offer as a 757-200 replacement - a 737-9MAX ER, a new aircraft class (b/t the MAX -9 and the 787-8) or a shortened 787?

From the recent Flightglobal article about a 757 replacement study....

"The largest part of that [757-200 replacement] segment is going to be filled by the larger versions of the narrowbody [737 Max]," McNerney says. "But there's some product planning we have yet to do, and we'll announce that in due course."

The remarks echo McNerney's statement about a 757 replacement last May. Speaking to analysts at last year's Boeing "investor day", McNerney explained the company's focus was on replacing the "heart" of the narrowbody market formed by the 737-700 and -800.

At the time, Boeing was still considering an all-new narrowbody, and McNerney suggested it could stretch that aircraft for the 757 replacement market or develop a shortened version of the 787.

Short Term, 739MAX. For range, 738MAX. I expect to hear about higher MTOW versions of both for the range.

I see Boeing needing to focus on:
787 weight reduction and aerodynamic improvements
789 EIS
777X (rewing? Certainly due for a re-engine)

I could see a *light* version of the 787 a la the 720. But it would have to be something far more economical than the prior 783 proposal (lighter).

With the 738MAX and 739MAX, I simply do not see the pressing need for a new 757 replacement offering other than higher MTOW versions of the 737.

They would have to be approved at least for 180min ETOPS operations to be considered as a 757 replacement.

So, we are now talking about a "B-787-7", with a range out to about 4500 nm, seating for some 220 pax and about 15-20 LD3s, a MTOW around 350,000 to 400,000 lbs, with derated GEnx-1B or Trent-1000 engines of around 50,000 lbs of thrust each. It would have a fuselarge lenght of about 150' to 160' long and a shorter wingspan of about 165'-175' with raked wingtips.

A stretched version of their eventual 737 replacement.

Most likely a 783 or the up and coming 79x! I just hate comparing a version of the 73 wit the 75 as comfort (to me is a major issue). I would much rather see the smaller "Dreamlinette" or the new 797 follow in the footsteps of the 757.

The 737NG is certified and flying 180 ETOPS operations. Getting 180 ETOPS for the 737MAX is not going to be a problem.
