Boeing 757-200

The Boeing 757-200 is a narrow-body aircraft and a variant of the 757 Family. The 757-200 is the smallest variant in the family but along with it's sister variant, the 757-300, are one of the largest narrow-body airplanes ever built. The 757-200 has extremely long range for a narrow-body aircraft allowing the aircraft to fly trans-Atlantic routes which were typically reserved for wide-body airplanes. Since it's engines were designed to allow the 757-200 to go farther and faster, the aircraft has often been known for being over-powered for it's size as it can have an impressive, short, take-off roll due to the increase power available. The 757-200 is no longer in production but is used in various fleets in various capacities around the world. Due to the ageing worldwide fleet of the 757-200, the aircraft is finding itself being replaced by either the Boeing 737-900ER or Airbus A321neo aircraft since those aircraft have started to encroach on the 757's abilities in terms of range and size. The 757-200 typically flies short to medium haul routes with medium to heavy demand. The aircraft has also found a niche serving long haul routes with small to medium demand.
