Re: Reuters: Boeing considering 757-Plus and 767-X

As either Airbus and Boeing get too specialized on aircrafts and routes, this will eat out sales of their bigger more expensive aircrafts.... However, I really feel Boeing needs to come up with an aircraft that matches the A321XLR....

Re: Should Boeing revive 787-3 for NMA project instead of re-desiging the 764?

I feel the 767 series is only suited to United States airlines... I am sure 90% of the 767 series sales are in the US. If you want a mid range widebody aircraft the picture that come to my mind is the A330-300 and 787....the 767 series falls in between that it is neither big enough and small enough....
