    I guess it would be appealing for some carriers, and could potentially help smaller carriers and LCCs with some of their dreams. I can't wait to see how this plays out...

    Nice dig...

    “Maintenance costs will be lower than the 757. There will be lower navigation fees and lower engine costs,” Rao said. “[The A321neoLR] will be a very unique aircraft when compared with the [Boeing] 737-9, which has no development legs left in it.”
    Whatever is necessary, is never unwise.

      So, will cancelling rather that developping the 757 be regretted by Boeing NOW?

        Considering that that model achieved a grand total of 7 (yes, seven) orders in its last two years of being on offer.... I'm gonna go with: "No"

        Hell, you could go back two further years on top of that, and still only gain two more orders, for a grand total of 9 orders in four years!
