There are many, many different configurations on the 757. In all the 753s there is the mid cabin galley but not on all the 752s. AAs 757 hav 8 extra Y seats instead of the galley and lav. Their TW 757s however, do have the mid cabin space. NW & ATA have this but UA & CO don't. I thought that maybe the longer haul flights use the mid-cabin galley but it isn't the case. COs 757 International config don't have it either. Is there an ops advanntage of taking away seats and adding the extra lav and galley?

Thanks for the responce but I was talking about the galley in the middle of the coach cabin. All the airlines I am aware except for HP, have the galley and lavatory after the First Cabin.
I you look at a seat map for AA, the ex-TW a/c have the break inbetween rows 24 and 25. NW has it on some between 32 &33.
Basically each airline customizes and configures their seating arrangements and galleys based on the number of seats they want to install in their fleet. Some have high density layouts, and many others have different size first or business class configurations and based on the type of food and beverage service they offer, they require more or less galley equipment on their airplanes.

Being a UA frequent flyer, I know what your talking about, but I woundn't consider it a functioning galley. It's basically just a counter with space to store two full size beverage trolleys and a few cabinets. It really is only used for drink preparation, so it's really not a galley. I think since most airlines have a 6 row F Class, it wouldn't make sense to have seats behind it since you could only get 1 or maybe 2 rows in. All airlines that have first class (except PrivatAir and Avianca Colombia) use this because it's more practical to put in an extra lav and drink space than 12 seats.

I fly for NWA. We have three 757 types. We call them the 5500 series. The 5600 series and 5800 series. There is not a center galley on the 757-5500 series(Four doors on each side) There is just a LAV on aircraft left and coach seats accross on aircraft right. There is a small galley accross from the center LAV on the 757-5600 series (3 doors and 2 window exits on each side). And on the 5800 series (757-300) We have a full size galley accross from door two left. I like that galley better. It's larger and more modern. We have to carry items from the back galley on the 5600 and we all push carts from the back on the 5500 series. Hope this helps.
I push a beverage cart, so don't go break'n my heart!!

United's new p.s. 757 have a full galley at 2R, utilizing convection ovens for United Business. Gone are the liquor and aux cart facing in towards the 2L lav, instead replaced with galleys facing each other at 2R.

I think you are thinking of 757's with the over wing exits and the 757's with the drop down door behind the wing. Airlines that have 757's equipped with the drop down door have a space at the door 3 area other airlines that have only over wing exits have no area behind the wing for lavs the are then placed just fwd of the aft galley.
Look at the pictures here of the exits.
This 757 has Over wing exits. There for there would be a galley and lav by door 1 then there would be another galley and lav by door 2 finally there would be no galley in the center and at the very rear of the aircraft there would be a galley with 2 lavatories.
Over Wing EXITS
This 757 has the drop down door 3 and has no over wing exit. This aircraft has the same configuration of galleys at doors 1 and 2 then beside door 3 they have 2 lavs and then aft they have only a rear galley but no lavs there. Hope all this could help.
NO Over Wing EXITS
