The Boeing 757 and 767 were the first, and still are, the only airplanes to share a common type
rating. The common type rating is due, in part, to airplane systems that are designed such that a
common set of flight crew operating procedures can be used. Airlines that operate both
the Boeing 757 and 767 have greater flexibility in assigning flight crews and adapting to changing
markets. They also benefit from similar maintenance procedures, manuals and inspection
requirements and reduced spares inventories. More than 26 airlines around the world operate both
757s and 767s
-The Boeing 767-200 airliner can handle a transcontinental flight or an international destination.
-The Boeing 767-200 has made more Atlantic crossings than any other aircraft. The
ER extended range version can fly almost 16 hours non-stop.
