Those are domestic configured
NW 757 aircraft. First class is only found on domestic configured aircraft. Anything over the atlantic is sold as World Business Class.
Just a normal F seat, no audio (except on 753) or video (except on 753) and even those two last points are only put into operation on flights to Hawaii.
The aircraft flying transatlantics are configured like this:

I just read that
NW 757-200 for the Atlantic will have 16F and 144Y..total 160 seats verses 180plus for domestic 200's.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

Quoting Isitsafenow ( Reply 2): 16F and 144Y..total 160 seats verses 180plus for domestic 200's.
Yes to save weight. I think they are going to be weight restricted on some routes.
Never be afraid to stand up for who you are.

They haven't even started flying trans atlantic yet... how does anyone know what the actual performance will be? Right now it's all on paper. Not mention, I'm sure NWA designed the configuration for optimal performance. Therefore I doubt the a/c will be performance restricted, save for the occasional situation.
