762(ER) is not much less efficient than 757 and it's very good for 5000-7000 mi routes, which is what they actually fly IRL.
As I said many times, ULR sucks. If you're stretching your planes over 7000 or 7500 miles at most, that's just wasting fuel and good aircraft.
Especially from USA, it's really easy to find profitable LR routes rather than ULR.
All in all 762 is the only choice in its class and it can make good money if you don't overstretch it.
yes of course, the 762ER is actually a good aircraft of you put it to good use and in fact, i have a lot of it in my fleet.
my point was, tagging it as one of the worst airplanes, in AE is just plain heresy
