Are all these exits really nessesary? I suppose since the 757 isn't even in production any more, it doesn't matter, but why didn't Boeing scrap the 4 exits over the wing and settle on 8 exits for the 753?
|Quoting YoungFlyer (Thread starter):|
I have a quick question here. while at SFO i spotted NW 757-300 with 12 exits. (4 over wing, and 8 door exits) that is the first time i encountered such a 757. here is a link to a picture form the data base:
Does this plane have 12 exits b/c its long? even the largest 777's don't have 12 total exits...

Is this because ATA had their 757s in high density config and had to modify them, just like easyjet had to do with their A319?

The stretch 8 (61/63 had 12 exits as well...the world's longest airliner until the 747 entered service.
