I am planning a trip to FCO. I live in ATL and could take Delta non-stop or take CO and make a quick stop at EWR. Any advice? I am curious what other a.netters would do.

I am partial to the CO product....don't know however if it is worth a connection in EWR?

Question I guess would be, what does CO run on the EWR-FCO route? Delta?
If CO is a 777, I'd go with them over a DL 767, but that is just my preference.

Flying coach or Business? Coach is worth the stop for CO, Business both are pretty comparable so DL is worth it.

They both use 767-200's.

Continental has a better plane, the 764 with ptvs, but if DL is the same price or cheaper, I'd go non-stop on the 763ER. Also, in case of irrops, DL has a lot more options for you (JFK, CVG and ATL).

All direct CO flights to Rome are 762. CO70 to AMS from EWR is a 764 and they also fly 764 to MAN, so you may want to connect to AZ in AMS or MAN. Make sure you go to Bernini Suqare or if you need a hotel to stay in Hotel Bernini, great area, the Triton Fountain is in the Bernini Square.

CO 762s have PTVs, so personally, I would opt for that on a transatlantic flight.

Great, I did not know that. That makes my decision easier.

Actually, DL uses the 767-300ER on one flight (DL70) and the 767-400ER on the other flight (DL76, scheduled to start in June). The reason you see "762" designated for DL70 is because now that DL has gotten rid of their 767-200s, they can now officially distinguish among their various 767 series aircraft:

762 = 767-300ER (ex-Gulf Air version seating 30 in BusinessElite)
767 = 767-300ER (regular DL 763 for international seating 36 in BusinessElite)
763 = Domestic 767-300 (non-ER)
764 = 767-400ER (regular DL 764 in domestic 2 class configuration being used on international routes this summer selling as all-coach)

Personally, I would always opt for a nonstop flight unless there is a significant price difference. I can sleep on planes so a PTV is not going to make me make an extra stop (in one of the most delay prone airports in the country like EWR no less). Also, on the DL76 (operated by the 764), if you get a seat in the forward cabin (rows 1-7), they are domestic First Class seats being sold as Coach and they have PTVs as well...

Delta does not use 767-200s on its international routes, only 767-300ERs (and coming this summer, 767-400ERs). You will see the 767-300ER on ATL-FCO.

CO does use the 767-200ER on EWR-FCO, but they are the newest and arguably the nicest 767-200s flying in scheduled service, all less than six years old. All have the 777 interior with PTVs in every seat with 32" of pitch. There is five-across seating in BusinessFirst.

With DL you will be on a 767-300ER that could be anywhere from 5 - 18 years old. Older style interior with 31"-32" of pitch, although they are being refurbished. No PTVs in economy, and six-across seating in BusinessElite.

I saw this on Expedia when choosing your seat, must be an error on their part.
