That 757 is most likely used for international and TATL routes. The pitch is larger and it has AVOD unlike the other 757's. The 738 also has AVOD but is used on Trans-cons and domestically.

Delta has multiple 757-200 configurations, seating anywhere from 166 to 184.

Briefly the configurations are:

Domestic:
22F / 156Y - 178
22F / 160Y - 182
24F / 159Y - 183
22F / 162Y - 184
26F / 158Y - 184

Interational:
16J / 18Y+ / 132Y - 166 (Reduce capacity by 1 J and 3 Y used for crew rest on longer flights)
16J / 12Y+ / 146Y - 174 (Reduce capacity by 1 J and 3 Y used for crew rest on longer flights)

Interport:
20F / 162Y - 182
