"Three-door" and "Four-door" 757s

Boeing has offered two different window and exit configurations on the passenger 757s.

The above photo illustrates the original "four-door" configuration, which consists of three full-size exit doors and one passenger service unit (PSU)-to-floor exit just aft of the wing.  These doors are in identical positions on the opposite side.

Some carriers, particularly those in the United States, have opted for the "three door" configuration, which deletes the PSU-to-floor exit in favor of two overwing exits on each side.
