How come Delta and Continental are the only 2 airlines to have the 767-400?
it seems like a cheaper alternative to the triple 7 (even though the 777 is in a class of its own ) and why did Boeing cease production for the 757, it has a decent capacity, it has the range, farther than the 737, why?

The real story about the 767-400 is that it was plane that was tailor made for Delta and Continental. The airlines needed a plane that did a certain job, so Boeing came up with the 764 (767-400).
