A Question About The 757-200

Fri Apr 21, 2000 9:46 am

When I was looking at NWA's seat maps, I noticed they had one for the 757R and N. They seem to be different in this way
One has 2 overing exits, one doesn't
Can you tell me some more differences between the two, and which one has the overwing exits? Also, your experiences on both of them?

The 757"N" has 4 overwing exits, while the 757"R" has 2 extra exits behind the wing. I prefer the 757R, because there's plenty of legroom if you get sat in the exit row at the rear around row 26/27 on the plan below. Also, the rear toilets on the 757R are actually located just behind the wing, in front of the emergency exit - on the 757N they're right at the back - a long walk of you're sat over the wing.
Plus, having centre toilets gives an exta "passing place" when you meet a trolley coming in the opposite direction!

Here's BA's plan of the 757"R" -the R is just a name given to it by NW

Recently I traveled with Icelandair's 757-200. From what I read in the last post, I realize that they were 757 "N's"
In this case the toilets are right in the back, and it is really a long way to go...
One other thing... One B-757 had big TV's above the aisle, nearly one TV every 6-7 rows, but in another plane of the same company, they were mini TV's below the overhead compartments, and those where every 3 rows.
I think the small ones where better... what do you think?
