So, it looks like ALC is the launch customer for the A321LR. I had heard that American was considering purchasing this aircraft to replace their 757's that they use for trans-Atlantic routes. Airbus seems to have found a niche that currently does not have a Boeing alternative. However, I doubt Boeing will create an alternate. Re-starting 757 production would be expensive and it's a limited market.

Pity though, the 757 is a beautiful bird. I just love hearing those RR engines rev up on take off! They have an unmistakable sound even from the ground.

A321LR will have difficulty on the Westward leg in Winter, people or some bags, no freight.
