CO 757 (transatlantic)

Thu Mar 01, 2001 12:26 pm

Hi All-

This coming May, I am scheduled to fly from AMS to EWR in a CO 757-200. I was wondering if these "international" 757s are configured any differently than its domestic sisters (i.e. more leg room/PTVs).

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

CO uses 2 757 configurations, domestic and intl. The intl. configuration has Business Elite seats, and a little more room.

In economy class there are 3 less seats gained by taking the first row of 3 seats out and adding a galley or closet. In business class the seating arrangement is taken from 24 first class to 16 BusinessFirst by removing two rows of seats. It is only in BusinessFirst that there is an increase in legroom.

I am pretty sure the transatlantic 757s don't have PTVs, but don't quote me on that.

Ah... that's Business FIRST .... the other is DL's brand name. The only PVTs on CO's 757s are in Busiess First. Coach has the standard drop down video screens.

If the flight isnt too crowdedand lasts less than 8 houer youll tolerate it. Last year I flown LIS-EWR and was a nightmare (too cramped, not even a available seat) , but on the flight back was great: Ive got the whole trhee seats for myself.Regards..
PS: dont expect too much of the inflight entertainment.
