Re: Did accidents affect 757 sales?

None of those accidents were attributable to the aircraft.
Mix of pilot error and maintenance - from memory a cleaner taped over the pitot tubes on one of them..
The lack of orders killed the 757, although with hindsight Boeing may have been over eager to kill it off.
So the answer is NO.
