Quoting CRJ900 (Reply 49):
That will be 16 seats more in Y on the 900ER, does that mean the 900 has a luxurious seat pitch and the 900ER will be a tight squeeze or will there be new slimline seats allowing more rows but with same pitch? Will the 900 be reconfigured to match the new 900ER?

AS 900ER's will have Recaro slimline seats. I've only heard rumors as to whether the older planes will be converted to the Recaro's.

I wonder if UA will take some of these 739ER or MAX's and put them into P.S. configuration right from the factory.

They will most likely wait for the 737-9MAX, as they've already committed to one last refurbishment of 757s for PS service.

So what. The 767 carries more payload and more range than the 757, all things are relative.

Wow. Guess Mommy didn't teach you any manners.

And she should be ashamed because her impolite kid tosses off insults while blind to facts.

The A321 is generally-perceived as a similar-class airplane to the 752. One significant issue for some 321 operators was the ability to carry baggage, and it was something that wasn't apparent when they were purchased/leased.]

So this is why some of the carribbean airlines, which had acquired 321s, chartered subservice from North American during the high-travel periods -- to ensure that the skads of baggage their customers were bringing along (and gladly paying for) could actually get to the destination.

737 MAX and A319NEO only have a niche market if they offer larger range compared to the bigger models.

And they do. The A319NEO has more range than a 757 in its standard configuration by a LONG shot.

The AA transcon video in the other thread is fantastic and would surpass even an even an upgraded UA752.

Meh. The new upgraded 752 will be fully redone nose to tail. No F, that's true, but still good product.

Quoting PlaneAdmirer (Reply 45):
Alright so can a 737-900ER take off at MTOW from the following airports: MDW; DCA; LGA; DAL, EWR (I would think so since UA has them on order); and DEN?

DCA? I doubt it. The 738 and A320 have a hard time getting up off the ground at DCA at MTOW even with the A320's superior field performance.

Now a 100+ degree day at DEN? Also I doubt it. A nice winters day at DEN? Sure.

EWR no problem.

Does anyone know how much effort it would be to droop the ailerons on the 737's? It seems that could be relatively low hanging fruit to get a bit more low speed lift and reduce the angle of attack at takeoff.

I know it's easier to do with fly-by-wire systems but I believe it has been done with hydraulic systems.

That is exactly how it works, I do believe... the 737-800SFP and 737-900ER have flaps configuration changes - not all new flaps.

So the 737-800SFP is great - but, for example, UA has a limited number. That's why they're redeploying the A320 to some Caribbean fields that they were flying 73Gs to, needed more seats, but didn't have enough SFPs to deploy a 738.

The A320, on the other hand, can have software loaded up to make it happen.

Also my previous post was based on a cursory examination of the ACAP. I'm an engineer, but not that kind of engineer, so i could be wrong.

Quoting traindoc (Reply 19):
I stand corrected! Mea culpa! So why does the 757 interior seem bigger than the 737 interior?

All about perception but dont forget that the 737 is much shorter. If youre in the front cabin the curvature of the fuselage is very noticible. The overhead bins are smaller right up front and they "canter" in. Youll never see this on the 57 because you have that big galley between the front cabin and the cockpit. Not to mention the mid galley. Also, the lower lobe is different on the 57.

Where exactly will the 900ER be flying from ANY of those cities to which they will meet MTOW?? Before that they will bulk out on bags. Most of the weight comes from fuel and the tanks arent near full to id say 90% of the destinations that will be served. Take of performance is a separate issue because if its hot enough, there could be 100 people on board and only about 60 bags and there could be a potential problem (for various reasons).

Isn't the true king of the NBs the 757-300, with winglets it has a range of almost 3600nm, a whooping 289 seats in a one class cabin..Even if its an old dog, it still must be a decent CASM on that bird?

Quoting lightsaber (Reply 47):
In particular for TATL. For the A321NEO, there is good money being spent to give it the range. Nothing public yet, but R&D money is employing friends of mine.

That is quite interesting to hear.  .

Quoting Boeing74741R (Reply 34):
As the 737-900ER has an extra set of exits behind the wings it can take advantage of the extra length to offer more seats, as well as the other improvements to range.

That is a major advantage over the previous model and must the most important explanation for the recent success of the plane.  . The B737 has come a long way, and road is not nearly at the end yet.

Quoting Boeing74741R (Reply 34):
The A321 had the amount of required exits from the off so could carry more passengers than the 737-900 and be closer to the seating capacity of a 757-200, which partly explains why the worldwide A321 fleet is larger than the worldwide 739/739ER fleet.

That sounds like a very logical explanation.

So, with the upgrades to the Airbus narrow bodies United is doing, will the combo of the 737 (all types) and A320 (all types) mean that United will have fully replaced all the sCO and sUA 757's except for the TATL and p.s.?

Or will UA, even after their huge 737 orders have many 757's left domestic? Am I even thinking clearly?

Very, very good. Every operator who has them today loves them to death, even you though have to have rather dense routes to fill them up.

But the market timing was horrible. If the 757-300 had been available in the 1980s, it would have replaced a lot of DC-8s, DC-10s, and L-1011s. By the time it actually came out, the customers who needed it mostly had new 767s already, and while the 757-300 is better than a 767 for missions it can fly, it's probably not better enough to prematurely dump a relatively new airplane.
