How Can The 753 Replace The DC-10?

Sat Dec 09, 2000 9:23 pm

The 757 is a narrow body, and the DC-10 is a wide body. How can that work? I think the 753 is quite long but I still cant understand that. Surely the 767 is a wiser choice?

The 757-300 can carry 239 pax. DC-10s carry 240-300, usually... Routes where the number is at the bottom end of the scale, and range isn't an issue, the 753 is an ideal replacement... Shame there isn't an A322, though, I have always prefered airbus (BUT DO NOT USE THIS COMMENT TO IGNITE AN AIRBUS BOEING WAR, IT IS SIMPLY MY PERSONAL OPINION!!!!)

Northwest is considering the 757-300 as a domestic DC-10-40 replacement. They will also need a 777 or a A330 to replace international DC-10-30 routes. Wouldn't it be nicer and easier with one replacement like a 777 or an A330?

The 753 can actually carry as many as the 762 and in some configurations more!

The 757-300 works very well as a direct replacement for the DC-10-10 on medium and long haul domestic transcons. While there may not be as much seating capacity as the -10, its superior economics make it very attractive. Plus, the airlines are not overly in need of the capacity that the -10 provides. The bottom line is that it is all about $$$. The 752, 753, 762, 763, 764, and A330 have all been used as DC-10 replacements for domestic and some longer haul flights. It is just finding the right plane for the job.

Yes $ dollars is the whole reason.

If you look at the CO fleet in two years we will be able to mix and match the equipment on any route, almost right up to the last minute for maxium revenue.

Example, EWR-TPA is a B757-200, and EWR-MCO is a B757-300, but lets say yield Mgt. sees a need for more seats to TPA on Fridays; they just change the airplane routing, nothing else, and there you have we made max RPM's, with very little changing. The same thing will work with the B737 fleet. I may not like having just Boeing's, but hay I think its going to be excellent for the bottom line...

As for the original question, yes the B757-300 will be a good replacment for the DC10 domistic, we are not going to us it internationally on 7Hr flights.
