It's an option.
TWA & AA have different doors...and they just integrated - not that it's a big deal though.

Interesting tidbit. This may come as a surprise to those who don't work with the airplane.
The B757-200 has no number 3 Door. Their doors are labeled 1,2, and 4 from front to back.

I wouldn't exactly call it an option. The original 757s don't have the 4 extra overwing exits, but the newer ones do.

The original batch of 757s to NW have no overwing exits but the ones from the second order do. Look at the original 757 operators and look at new ones.

Just my thoughts.

The similar exit option is available for the 767-300. Check out the difference between, say a BA example and one from the AA fleet.

The following are the different verions of the 757-200

1. 757-200 - Standard passenger version with choice of RR and P&W powerplants ranging up to 43,000lbs.

2. 757-200PF - Package freighter, originally ordered by UPS, but several other carriers now use them, though in smaller numbers.

3. 757-200 Combi - Forward cargo door incorported forward of the wing. Royal Nepal appear to be the only operator of the type.

3. 757-200SF - Special freighter. Ex British Airways passenger machines converted by Boeing to freighters on behalf of DHL. Powered by RR RB211-535C engines. Old timers, some nearly twenty years old.

Hope this helps.

AZJ, It's an option and has been available from the start of the B757 programme.

Delta were the 3rd 757 customer and were the first airline to select the option of 4 overwing exits.

N601DL, the first B757 with overwing exits was delivered to Delta in May 1984.

On the other hand,
N756NA, National's latest B757 with no overwing exits was delivered in June 2001.
