I was confused on that too and wasn’t able to get an answer from the devs or mods. It seems like it’s just being renamed.
Which is odd, as you mentioned, the current pax variant has PW engines, so why rename it to something it clearly is not?
They did the same thing with the BAE 146, ATR 72 and CRJ700 so who knows what they’re doing.
What makes the 757 slightly different to the BAE or CRJ is that the devs did actually post a photo of the advance model with PW engines around the time LEJ was released, and we already have the B752F which has RR engines, which makes me think the 757 remodel is quite likely for 2.0, especially with how common they were at SXM
That is true, it was unfinished but we did get a look at it.
Personally I don’t think so, but at the same time I love the 757 so I would enjoy being surprised. It’s definitely possible that they quietly finished the model in the background though, and it would make sense for the SXM release.
So if not 2.0 then definitely in the following updates. The devs said they are going to get all the airplane models to current quality standards as fast as possible after 2.0 releases, so they can implement features such as airline names on planes and retractable landing gear.
