It's simple: The new A320 family is just better overall. Boeing needs to stop pretending the 737 is going to be something that it's not.

I've said it before and I'll continue saying it: they need to restart the 757 program with new engines, avionics and a composite frame. Because once the A321LR goes into full swing, it will absolutely dominate any 737 on the market. It's going to fly longer, at less cost, and will be an almost direct replacement to the 757.

As for the wide-body market. That'll be close, but Boeing will be fine.
