I just feel robbed when that happens, I know it has the range, I just love flying widebody planes, I was wondering if anyone else feels this way? Sorry the Topic Tiitle got cut off, I'm sure you all can make out the next few letters

Nope, because whenever I have gone to book a transatlantic flight I make sure that I can see the aircraft operating the routes which are my available options. Therefore, within a certain price band I'll book the flights on whichever aircraft I feel like flying on, almost always the option of flying a 757 is one of the most expensive.

Last night it was the cheapest option going to FRA, that got me thinking about this post

Well no, if flying NW's they will have plenty of room. Also some of those cities wouldn't be served otherwise, like DUS, despite DL sending 767's there.

100% feel that way! It's a little ridiculous, after all we put up with them trans-con just fine but then complain when it's transatlantic, and the trips are about identical in length...

Last summer I had x2 family events to get to within a couple of weeks of each other and the cheapest routing was AA's BOS-SNN and BOS-MAN on each occasion.

Interior was ratty as hell, IFE was same as domestic, and the whole experience was just depressing. I kept trying to tell myself, 'hey it's just like going across the Atlantic in a 707, as our parents did, this could be chic and jetset', but it was sooooo far from that.

Actually the thing that would have made all the difference would have been AA's newer Y seats with the adjustable headrest like the MD-80s instead of the skyblue cloth seats that sag and only come halfway up your back...

Nope, 'cause in my case at least it means that I'm avoiding LHR...  Silly

Along with price, and departure/arrival times.

Who's flying 757's into FRA from the states?  confused

I've been on the B757 a couple of times going across the pond. Don't bother me one bit, quite comfortable in fact.
