IIRC, when the 767 and 757 were first placed into service,
there was immediate feedback that they were more sensitive
to turbulence than older aircraft. IIRC further, there was
a Wall Street Journal article about Delta's complaints to
Boeing about this, presumably asking for control mods.
Does anyone know more on this point?
