I found CO's seats uncomfortable when I flew them back in October 2000. Their 757s are pretty nice though, despite the seats.

I flew them FNT-CLE-TPA, and my leg cramped up SOO BAD on the CLE-TPA leg that I couldn't put weight on it for 4 days!!

Lets do some sexy math. We add you, subtract your clothes, divide your legs and multiply

I live in CLE and I fly to IAH at least monthly, so Continental has, logically, become my carrier of choice. I am still trying to figure out if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Anyway, in July I had the displeasure of flying the 757 from IAH to CLE. I was extremely disappointed. The A/C still had the old headrests, which basically means there wasn't one, and was in gernerally poor shape. The seat was by far the most uncomfortable airplane seat I ever flew in. I hope your 757 is more comfortable. As fas as IFE, its standard stuff. Flip down screen showing a sitcom and the news. In any event, travel safe.
