Boeing says not studying a 757 re-engine replacement

SEATTLE (Reuters) - Boeing Co (BA.N) said on Wednesday it is not studying resurrecting its out-of-production 757 jetliner with new engines to plug a gap in its jetliner lineup between its largest single-aisle plane and its smallest wide-body models.

    Boeing has studied resurrecting the single-aisle 757 “a couple of times,” Randy Tinseth, vice president of marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes said at an industry conference.

    “That airplane had a very unique production system. It was relatively expensive to build,” he said. “The business case is not going to close.”
