I definitely think so, it’s somewhat of an older aircraft :)

no no no the 787 replaced the 767

767-200 = 787-8
767-300 = 787-9
767-400 = 787-10

@DeltaJuliet1990 is right.
I’m pretty sure there will never be a “767NG”. The 767 was by far not as popular as the 737.

The 787 replaces also the 757s.

They do.
But 73Js don’t cross the Atlantic.

I love my 757’s and 767’s :)

I don’t particularly care for the 787’s

I like the A350 better

No.

They already potentially offer the 767-2C. Nothing has come of this so far.

By this point, I hope Boeing knows that they cannot keep reusing an old airframe. The 737 is limited because it sits too low to the ground. The 747 needs to be flown with 4 engines, one cannot remove two engines and make the design work.

767 doesn’t need to take up more space on the production line-Its space could be better used on a less compromised/more flexible design.

Perhaps they could make a 787-3/787-8 hybrid, meaning that the airframe is based on the 787-8 but is optimized for shorter missions (Less fuel tanks, weakening certain parts since their extra strength is not needed).

You know what’s crazy? Radars actually still have the 783 code for the 787-3, even though it doesn’t exist

I’m sure more people would prefer the 757NG due to how amazing of an aircraft it is already, I think an updated version would do very well.

Yes, it is time for a 767 NG, It’s called the 787.

Yes, the Boeing 757 NG would be the better choice of the two. But that’s for another topic ;)
