Once the A321 became available BA's 757's became uncompetitive on CASM for European routes out of LHR. What would be the point of acquiring 757-300's when they were already negotiating to sell off the 757-200 fleet to DHL for conversion into freighters? They only really made sense for airlines operating both the 757-200 and 757-300.
