Id love to see my namesake fly with the new engines but I don't see how it will replace the 757. Best of luck to B and hope I find my answers in the next couple of years. The 767 must be retired by 2028 so more life to an old warrior sounds interesting. I'm sure we may also see an A360 on it's way.

Boeing has to implement tried and true 787 technology on It's future 737 and 757 replacements and not depend on software for plane control (no MCA'S) in order to regain a share of the market. The 737 is done and must be replaced. So is the 757.

Re: Boeing NMA in doubt as customers push for all new 737MAX and 757 replacement

For a 767 replacement we already have the 787. The airlines want a new 757 so build them a new 757 using the technology already developed for the 787, or in other words, a narrow bodied 787. The only thing is that Boeing doesn't seem to yet know that they can build it.

The 783 can be built at anytime. It is a modern technology jetliner that will have a slightly reduced range at a lower price (airlines love that) so Boeing should approach the airlines and offer it again. The worst that can happen is a "not interested" reply from them, so no harm done to a...
