    Have an upcoming transatlantic flight on a 757. SWU looks tight so suspect I will be sitting in coach.

    Are there any differences in configurations between the domestic and international 757s?

    Yes, I've checked seatguru. I'm safely ensconced in 18C but could have 9B unblocked if folks think it would be better.

    Actually kind of curious - despite all my trips overseas, have never done a transatlantic trip on 757.

    I prefer row 9 - more leg room and you're first off the plane. The downsides are the restrooms right in front of you and no floor storage.

    I prefer 10A & 10F over the row 9 options for longer flights. You get the same extra leg room due to the missing seat in row 9 and you get a wall to rest against for sleep.

    I like to curl up to the left when I'm sleeping, so I prefer the A side.

    And me to the right. It really is a personal preference. As always... YMMV
