Why is the 757-300 not selling well? I read that Boeing hoped to sell it to customers replacing the L-1011 and DC-10. Couldn't the 757-300 be successful in the U.S. on high volume, short distance routes? I know that Delta uses L-1011's on some high volume, short distance routes in the U.S. Wouldn't the 757-300 work well on these routes? Do you think that Delta will merely use its older 767's on these routes as the L-1011's are phased out? The 757-300 appears to be the largest single-aisle plane ever built by Boeing (possibly the U.S. - I know that some of the DC-8's were stretched quite a bit).
