Earlier in the year it was definitely a 762; I saw the widebody there at CLE myself. Looks like it's been taken down to a 752 in the current schedule. Hard to believe that there's no widebodies at CLE now...

DC10's were an exception and not the rule at CLE. There were a few A300-RB flights operating into and out of CLE to IAH, DEN, and EWR in the early 1990's. 777's landing at CLE are usually diversions due to weather/traffic at EWR and the CLE-LGW route, which will be axed in October 2003 is flown with a 757. It was going to be operated with a DC10 when the route was first announced. The current runway configuration at CLE does not allow a fully loaded and fuelled heavy widebody from taking off to Europe.
I did see a CO 747 land at CLE in 1992 on weather diversion. It was operating FRA-EWR and overflew EWR.

I used to see DC-10s on a regular basis. Most likely to Houston.
Never had DC-10-30's on a "regular" basis. A few years back, before the DC-10's were retired, they were run once a week for about 2 months or so to ferry maintainence stores from Houston to Cleveland-including some engines-I think. but it was never a regular service. I did meet the -10 on the inbound on two occasions back then.
Were there ever any A300s to EWR?
Yes, the Scarebus ran CLE-EWR for a while. I think it was twice a day to DEN, once a day to EWR.
CLE-LGW is flown at least seasonally, if not year round, with a 762.
I could be wrong, but I don't think a 762 ever flew the route even as an equipment substitution. We did have it run once CLE-IAH, I believe, and a few times CLE-EWR, but never CLE-LGW. I can tell you that, 'cause there's still not a CO gate agent in CLE that has worked more CLE-LGW flights than me (and I haven't worked one in 18 months).

I should have clarified my statement better. Many frequent flyers, those who pay close attention to the aircraft, avoid this flight because it was not flown by a widebody. This comes into play in the winter, when business travelers, many who are picky about the services they want, outnumber the leisure travelers.

Also on a similar note, RJ's are now flying up to three flights, so narrow bodies are becoming the norm and not the exception. What I am trying to say is that they are becoming more common, so a narrow body across the pond is not that bad, with the way the other majors are going you might see more start offering a 757. Also before the wide bodies you had the 707's DC8's and such flying the route.

Now as i type this 1 B1900D and a CO 73G just flew right over my house not even 20 seconds from eachother. But sadly CO has never flown widebodies into cle in the past ten years, and i presume its because of high landing fees.
