Hello guys!

I was just recently checking on some flights at expedia and the site states that CO uses the 737-300 for the SEA - EWR non-stop service, flt #CO1680. Is this a mistake or really so?

I was on a US flight from SEA-CLT once on a 733 in 1995 or so.

Worst experience of my life, but the plane is capable.

At the moment, the schedule shows 3 flights per day to EWR with 2 of them on 738's and the other with a 737-700. There are 6 per day to IAH with 4 of them on 738's and the other 2 on 757's.

Very intresting. CO should use the 737-800 or maybe even the 757-300 for the route.

Continental does use the 737-800 on this route, two out of the three daily flights it operates. The third is now a 737-700. Continental prefers to use its 757-300's on high density routes, such as EWR-LAS, EWR-FLL and other FL markets, as well as from IAH to LAX and so forth. The 757-300 is really being considered as a replacement for domestic DC10/L1011 type aircraft and as such it is really intended for high density operations. SEA-EWR is probably a medium density route.

Most primary CO transcons (EWR to LAX, SFO, SEA) are flown with a 737-800 with one of the flights (except SEA) operating with a 757-200.

Will the 753's go back to the Summer rotation this year like last, with flights out of IAH to DEN, LAX, MSY, etc? I miss seeing those big birds here.

I've heard this is a glitch in the CO timetable database. These are flights that are supposed to be 737-700s, but because the seating capacity of the 73G and the 733 are the same, it's glitching things up.

If you play around with the electronic timetable (I'm assuming that's how you got that information), you will also find that we have no 757-300 flights logged in the schedule for the spring and summer months (esp. to FLL and MCO from EWR, they are conspicuously absent), so I can assure you that this will be changed. Plus, our 733s do not have the range to operate these flights, the US models are specially modified for these longer hauls, probably done before Boeing even offered the 737NG. I think they refer to it as the 737-300EOW, but I am not positive.

CO will be running a 735 CLE-SEA this summer, and on the CLE-LAX route, you'll have one 738, one 757, and one 733.

I remember the days when CLE-LAX and CLE-SFO were run with MD80's. Ugh.
