NW flies 5 variations of 757. 4 different configurations in the -200, 1 type for the -300
757-200 5500 series Domestic: 22 F / 160 Y
The oldest group of NW's 752's, delivered primarily in the 1980's. Do no have overwing exits. Used strictly for dometic flights
757-200 5600 series Domestic: 22 F / 162 Y
The newer group of NW's 752's, delivered in the mid 90's and newer. Have two overwing exits. Also have a slightly more up-to-date interior, and were partially ETOPs ready when delivered. Used strictly for domestic flights
757-200 5600 series Pacific: 20 J / 162 Y
This small subfleet is based out of NRT for Intra-Asia flying. First class cabin is modified and sold as (World) Business Class and offers slightly more pitch than the domestic first class cabin, hence 2 less seats and the change in the position of the closet storage up front. They fly the following routes:
757-200 5600 series Trans-Atlantic: 16 J / 144 Y
The subfleet of 10 aircraft has been ETOPS certified, fitted with winglets, and had new interiors installed to begin Trans-Atlantic service this spring. A modified World Business Class replaced the domestic first class. Coach offers slightly more seat pitch due to few seats in order to achieve desirable range/payload performance.
