Boeing 757-300

The Boeing 757-300 is a narrow-body aircraft that is a variant of the 757 Family. The 757-300 is the largest variant in the family and is one of the largest narrow-body airplanes ever built. The 757-300 shares the power and performance that the 757-200 has however the range is reduced in favour for more seating but the airplane can also fly the trans-Atlantic routes that the 757-200 does. The 757-300 was not initially designed with winglets but they have become an aftermarket add-on enabling improved fuel-efficiency amongst other benefits. The 757-300 is no longer in production today and it unfortunately did not share the success of the 757-200; only 55 757-300s were constructed whereas 913 757-200s were built. The 757-300 can typically carry 243 passengers in two-class configuration flying medium to long haul routes with medium to heavy demand.
