Question About Travelling On CO

Hello, all. I found out tonight that I'll be flying CO for the first time on flight numbers 1580 (Mar. 11) and 1881 (Mar. 14). The routing is SEA-EWR and EWR-SEA. Being as this is my first time on CO, I've already tried to search a bit about the airline. I am pretty sure I saw somewhere in a magazine article a couple years ago that CO has complimentary meal service on flights of three hours or longer. According to CO's website, I'll be on 738s on both legs. The meal is listed as snack. My question is: What does "snack" entitle? Is it a lonely cookie or a little snack box like NW had? Also, is there anything particularly bad about travelling on CO or their 738s that I should know?

Thanks in advance.

Max

CO provides complimentary meals in all cabins at mealtimes the last time I checked. What time are those flights at? On late-night flights (after dinner time) they give you two small bags of pretzels.

1580 departs at 0705 PST. 1881 departs at 1829. It would be annoying not having something as simple as a bagel on the morning flight being as we would arrive on the east coast past noon.

Quoting 787seattle (Reply 2):

On CO1580 I'd expect you to get their Y breakfast (prepackaged cereal bowl + fruit + milk) and possibly a lunch snack (could be anything from the pretzels to a small sandwich to a full lunch (sandwich, small side salad, and mini candy bar)).

On CO1881 you should get their Y dinner (hot packaged food item + side salad + small dessert) and possibly a snack (pretzels).

About their 738s: they're no DL 752 but they are wonderful aircraft. The B and E seats are a tiny bit narrower than the rest of the seats, but they're not too bad. Check out SeatGuru for more information about their 737-800 seating configurations.

Shame you have to go through New Jersey. Make the best of it.

Anything else you want to know? Feel free to ask (and to everyone else, feel free to give me a hand answering  ).

Obviously coming from someone who has seen very little of New Jersey. Try not to sound so ignorant.  

As somebody else mentioned, the "meals" are only offered at mealtimes. However, and especially on a longer flight, the snack can include a small sandwich (and I mean small), a pack of carrots, and a small candy bar. At the minimum, a pack of peanuts or pretzels is offered with a drink.

Thanks to the both of you. I'll be in a group, but hopefully I'll manage to switch seats to a window. I will try to get a trip report up in a couple weeks after.

One more question: What's the deal with wifi on CO? How much does it cost (if anything)?

Every time I've been on 1580 and as listed on CO's website, you get a hot breakfast sandwich. I've had everything from Bagel with egg and cheese, to a Egg and cheese biscuit, and a Pita bread half with egg. Along with that is fruit, a bite sized muffin and yogurt. SEA => EWR is also one of the few routes that has a choice of three entrees in First Class too.

Sometimes the snack is this mini sandwich that I really like... You shouldn't be dissapointed, they're a great airline.


The sky is no longer the limit, but the mere minimum
