Actually, the 'Atlantic' only refers to the B757-200, on the line directly beneath. Notice how the 757 listings are sorted numerically.

ah true... that would be interesting though. What routes could theoretically work for a NW -300 if it got Winglets and ETOPS Cert. or does it already have it ?

Currently
LAX-HNL
SFO-HNL
SEA-HNL
SEA-OGG

with seasonal ANC-Hawaii in the winters.

The West Coast flights tend to originate in either MSP or DTW.

LAX, PDX, SEA, and SFO are the non stops operated by the 753. The A333 operates the MSP flight and there are no non stop flights to DTW.

NW flies 5 variations of 757. 4 different configurations in the -200, 1 type for the -300

757-200 5500 series Domestic: 22 F / 160 Y
The oldest group of NW's 752's, delivered primarily in the 1980's. Do no have overwing exits. Used strictly for dometic flights

757-200 5600 series Domestic: 22 F / 162 Y
The newer group of NW's 752's, delivered in the mid 90's and newer. Have two overwing exits. Also have a slightly more up-to-date interior, and were partially ETOPs ready when delivered. Used strictly for domestic flights

757-200 5600 series Pacific: 20 J / 162 Y
This small subfleet is based out of NRT for Intra-Asia flying. First class cabin is modified and sold as (World) Business Class and offers slightly more pitch than the domestic first class cabin, hence 2 less seats and the change in the position of the closet storage up front. They fly the following routes:

NRT-CAN
NRT-GUM
NRT-NGO-SPN
NRT-PUS
NGO-GUM
KIX-GUM

757-200 5600 series Trans-Atlantic: 16 J / 144 Y
The subfleet of 10 aircraft has been ETOPS certified, fitted with winglets, and had new interiors installed to begin Trans-Atlantic service this spring. A modified World Business Class replaced the domestic first class. Coach offers slightly more seat pitch due to few seats in order to achieve desirable range/payload performance.

Routes include (not all have started yet)

DTW-AMS (5th daily)
DTW-FRA (2nd daily)
DTW-BRU
DTW-DUS
BDL-AMS
BOS-AMS (2nd daily)
JFK-AMS (in addition to 2x KLM beginning in late 07/early 08)

757-300 5800 series, domestic: 24 F / 200 Y
NW's largest domestic aircraft, this fleet of 16 aircraft is used to operate West Coast-Hawaii, and the main trunk line domestic routes out of DTW & MSP. These aircraft are ETOPS. Domestic routes examples include, but not limited or have shown up at some point to DTW-MSP/LAX/MEM/SEA/SFO/MCO/LAS/PHL/BWI/RSW. MSP-DTW/MEM/SEA/PDX/SFO/LAX/PHX/MCO/ANC/IND etc. etc.
