yes of course you are quite correct. I was referring to 'normal' operations. obviously there are failure cases on both makes that change the ball game.
However I still make the point, that in normal ops the 757 (and all other boeings?) the thrust lever matches the actual thrust delivered at any point n time, whereas on the airbus it doesn't.
