Boeing delivered the first 757 to Eastern Airlines in December of 1982. Due to its demonstrated reliability, the 757, a member of the midsized 757/767 family of Boeing aircraft, was FAA approved for 120-minute extended range twin engine operation in 1986. By mid- 1992, all 757-200s were approved for 180-minute operation. The 757-200 has become known for exceptional fuel effeciency, low noise levels, and its versatility in flying both short and long range routes, thus making it particularly effective in "hub-and-spoke" planning. Through June of 1996, 830 757s had been ordered by 47 airlines from 21 different countries and the fleet had carried over 703 million passengers for more than 12.8 million hours of service.
