Hello all, I have flown on Continental's 757's, and TWA's 757's and it seems like TWA's 757's are much larger. Is it due to the fact that TWA has an extra bulkhead near the rear of the aircraft, or what???
As Sn330 stated earlier, TWA does not operate 757-300 aircraft. As for TWA's 757 interior seeming more comfortable than Continental's 757 interiors, Sn330 is right, both airlines differ in seat configuration. TWA's 757-200 aircraft are configured with 180 seats, 158 in coach, and 22 in first class. Continental's domestic 757's have 189 seats. However, CO's international 757 aircraft are configured with just 172 seats.
Having flown on both I noticed that COs 757s have two over wing exits and have thier lavs in the back of the A/C next to the galley. TWs 757s don't have overwing exits but have a full door just aft of the wing with their lavs right infront of this exit. The effect I noticed is that on CO its 757s are divided in two (F-class and coach divided by the forward lavs) where as on TW its three divisons because the aft lavs are half way back cutting the coach cabin in two. This might have the effect of making TWAs 757s seem longer.
