One of the most comfortable TATL flights was from JFK-PSA with a 757-200. The cabin was fresh, had mood lighting, and was just in general a great flight. Plus you don't have to worry about being stuck in the middle seat section which I personally hate.
Narrowbody TATL is not bad at all
Well good for you. I personally find around 5 hours on a narrow body the limit for comfort. I actually really like the middle seat section. It's a very spacious feeling compared to sitting at a window seat.

And how is that going to benefit me as a traveler? This is also the reason why I never flew transatlantic on a 757. I even started out by saying that it's probably a good move by the airline, but personally I prefer wide bodies for the longer flights. Relax

Not necessarily me, because I never bashed the 757. Jesus what is it with you people. You get offended just by the slightest comment or criticism. And no I don't care if it is an A321neo or 757, but I just find a widebody more comfortable regardless of the manufacturer.
