The first of 15 Rolls-Royce RB211-powered Boeing 757-300s has arrived at Continental Airlines. The aircraft will initially be operated on the carrier's US East Coast services from its New York Newark hub. The 210-seaters are the first of the stretched 757 to be equipped with a two-class layout, carrying 24 passengers in first class and 186 in economy. They will be operated alongside Continental's present fleet of 41 757-200s.
