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).
