Boeing’s proposed new middle of market aircraft is aimed as a replacement for the aging Boeing 757 and 767-300ER aircraft. AirInsight’s data models show clearly that the 767-300ER is becoming increasingly costly, as shown in the following snapshot of data from the first three months of 2019 for US carriers. The 767-300ER, labeled 763, has significantly higher costs than other wide-body aircraft in service on a hourly cost per passenger basis.
The question we examined is whether the 767-300ER can remain in service long-enough for the Boeing NMA to replace it, or whether other alternatives may be needed before that aircraft arrives.
