Correct.  Neither the 757 nor Concorde have crashed.  The only other
airframe for which this is true, amongst Western jetliners of 100
seats or more which have entered service, is the Dassault Mercure.
(The A340 is the same airframe as the A330, which scored its first
smoking hole a few weeks ago.  The 777 is not yet in service.)
