Along with the creation of the Boeing 757 aircraft, the aircraft manufacturing corporation The Boeing Company decided to create a model marked as Boeing767. These two models were developed in parallel with each other and therefore, in general, they are technologically identical. A significant difference is the interior design and layout of the cabin. The Boeing 767, unlike the 757, is a wide-body airliner with two aisles between the seats. Boeing 767 has become a popular wind-engine airliner for flights across the Atlantic. Boeing 767 as well as Boeing 757 comply with international civil aviation standards ETOPS (Extended Range Twin-engine Operation Performance Standards).
