On a recent trip to Ireland I saw a US Airways 757. Just curious, are their J seats Envoy-style or domestic first class? I cannot find a seat map on usairways.com.

Do a pretend Reservation. When you get to "Build Itinerary", click on Seats, then on "Envoy" to view the Envoy seat availability, or click on "Coach" to view the Economy section.

To get a better view of the seating arrangements (but not availability) go here:

That's a weird setup for a 752. Would hate to be in row 4 ABC or 5 D next to toilet. Why no galley at row 5? Why are lav's mid cabin at row 23 vs. rear like most 752's?

Airline choice. TW's 757s were like that as well.

What are US's long-term plan with the 757? Are they going to eventually replace with A330s? Do they have A330s on order?

A lot of info on seatguru was false. It says that coach features recliner seats and that all seats feature in seat video.

The 17 332s on order (that are expected to be delivered) and 2 coming in on lease are for expansion with the 350s eventually replacing the 767s. There are also another 10 332s on order that management has said they never expect to be delivered. I believe they will continue to fly the 757 until airbus (or less likely Boeing) produces a true 757 replacement in terms of seats and range.

They're keeping all of the ETOPS 757s in the fleet for the forseeable future, including the ex-USAir birds that just haven't been ETOPSed yet. They're getting rid of the much older ex-Eastern birds.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

Yes, and that may be 12 to 16 years from now. So some 757s will be staying clean and shiny for many years, as airlines are not yet offered any alternative in the 3000-4000 mile segment. Every airline seems to be identifying their best 757 frames that are best suited to a long future with winglets plying the ocean routes. The newest ones with the least MX problems are making the cut in this 757 beauty contest.

Is it any easier crossing in the middle seat of a 767 or 777??? The seat width and pitch are the same. All you get extra is head room. Unless you're 8 ft 3 or have a giant noggin, that not going to help you much..... Big grin

The lavs on our 752s are one at 2L and two behind row 34. B/F has one just behind the cockpit, forward of 1L.

Quoting Clipper136 (Reply 14):

I would much rather take a 767 over the pond over a 757 anyday simply because the ratio of middle seats to aisle/window seats is much smaller in a 767 i.e. the chances of getting a middle seat is smaller. Plus if you get stuck in one of those middle seats, its in the middle of the cabin and you have a choice to climb out over the person to the right or left of you. In a 757 (or any other narrowbody for that matter) if a "person of size" is sitting in the aisle seat you are pretty much stuck there...

 checkmark 

757 - 2/6 or 33%
767 - 1/7 or 14%

Plus the 767's center seat has more headroom to boot.

I have been on a US 757 between CLT and PHL on Monday which had nice looking Envoy class seats in the front and winglets, but definetly no toilet at door 2L as it is depicted at seatguru. I was sitting in 6F (the seat numbered 6E on seatguru), so I would definetly have noticed. They also had a pretty new overhead video system which the crew was not able to get to work as they wished (no sound, meaning they had to do the manual safety demonstration). I connected to a 767 transatlantic flight, having very old envoy class seats and similar old seats even without headrests in Eco. Luckily I had a whole middle row for me on that flight to sleep. Otherwise I would definetly had prefered the 6F seat in the 757 over any eco seat in the 767...

I flew on the US 752 from DUB to PHL back in the summer and I have to say the flight was fine on the way out. The aircraft was updated and the economy seats were leather and I think the new envoy seats were installed. On the flight home, it was a different experience, very uncomfortable old seats and constant bumping into seats by the stewardesses during the flight. The Envoy class seats were the old ones so I think it's 50/50 on what you get.

It depends on the 757, and the older 1980s 757s tend to have them there. These have no overwing exits and instead have larger emergency exits behind the wings, and lavs are put in this area. Newer 757s, those from the 1990s and 2000s, usually have overwing exits instead and lavs at the back. I know it was eventually an option for airlines to choose from, with the overwing option having a higher capacity. Northwest, for instance, has its 1980s 757s with the door exits and mid-cabin lavs, while their post-1995 757s have the overwing exits and rear lavs.

All 753s are like this in general, as 753s have a combination of both overwing exits and the door emergency exits as a part of the cabin stretch. This isn't just a CO thing.

One of my friends just posted pictures on his Myspace of the first US 757 to be retrofitted with the new interior. N910AW looks incredible! All leather in F and Y and everything brand new. I can't wait for the rest of the 757s to be overhauled the same way.
