Re: Leeham news article on possible successor to 767F

I'm confused. The article mentions the NMA as being "twin aisle, between 5,000nm and 4,500nm range, 225-250 pax." IIRC this was similar/same as the 2018 concept for the NMA. A -F version of this seems like it could contend with a 767F, but what about the 757? It seems a bit big for what it...
