This had to be one of the worst moves Continental could have made. They changed from a 777 or 767 to a 757. The seating is too crammed. Very uncomfortable. There is no reason for using this plane type for this distance. If you have to fly to Spain, go with Iberia, Delta or USAirways.

One of the largest 1st class sections available domestically, 24 seats vs as few as 12 on some United flts. Much better chance of an upgrade. Not nearly as nice as the CO757-200 with lay flat seats

For short flights, less than 3 hours, this aircraft is comfortable. The problem is when the flight is full, not much "elbow" room.The tv screen was right above my row.Continental's seats are comfortable.
