YEET i'd love that. You think they'll assemble it at Renton like the original 757?

That would hand the A321XLR the market. The longer the wait the longer Airbus catches Boring.

757 is too old a design for this to be realistically viable, look at the Max issues. Boeing haven't been as intelligent as Airbus and if the new Comac jet is a success they'll be the ones losing their market, a lot more so than Airbus!
