Hello all, I have flown on Continental's 757's, and TWA's 757's and it seems like TWA's 757's are much larger. Is it due to the fact that TWA has an extra bulkhead near the rear of the aircraft, or what???

CO's 757s are 757-200s and TWA's 757s are 757-300s

Wishihadalife is wrong about TWA. They only operate the -200. No U.S. carrier currently operates the 757-300. The TWA aircraft may have seemed bigger due to configuration.

As Sn330 stated earlier, TWA does not operate 757-300 aircraft. As for TWA's 757 interior seeming more comfortable than Continental's 757 interiors, Sn330 is right, both airlines differ in seat configuration. TWA's 757-200 aircraft are configured with 180 seats, 158 in coach, and 22 in first class. Continental's domestic 757's have 189 seats. However, CO's international 757 aircraft are configured with just 172 seats.

Having flown on both I noticed that COs 757s have two over wing exits and have thier lavs in the back of the A/C next to the galley. TWs 757s don't have overwing exits but have a full door just aft of the wing with their lavs right infront of this exit. The effect I noticed is that on CO its 757s are divided in two (F-class and coach divided by the forward lavs) where as on TW its three divisons because the aft lavs are half way back cutting the coach cabin in two. This might have the effect of making TWAs 757s seem longer.

CO's domestic 757's are 24/159 = 183, not 189. The 753's that are to start delivery a year from now are to be 24/186 = 210.

Working very hard to Fly Right....
