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).

the 777 family is more fuel efficient, can hold more pax and is newer. boeing ceased production of the 757, and will soon ceease production of the 767 to make way for the new 787.

Its not a very good alternative to the T7, it has less range and tons less cargo capabilities.
