Continental's Cleveland hub certainly has its share of regional jets and 737s. Has Continental ever flown any widebodies in/out of CLE? Right now the biggest plane they fly there is a 752.

I used to see DC-10s on a regular basis. Most likely to Houston.

CLE-LGW is flown at least seasonally, if not year round, with a 762.

Actually, it's a 752, not 762  Big grin

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...

I wish it was a 762 it has always been flown with the 757.

Sllevin, sorry pal, but you're incorrect. CO has NEVER flown a 767 into Cleveland, especially on the CLE-LGW run.

If CO put the 762 on CLE-LGW, I'm sure that it could be flown year round and have stronger loads. Many people avoid this flight because it is on the narrowbody, including many Clevelanders.

I would say that an extremely high % of passengers do not know and do not care what aircraft they are on.

For a long time I worked for a company that did charter flights out of CLE on ATA and they used a 757 and that fact had no effect on the loads.

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.

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).

Artsyman,

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.

Clefan, this flight either does not operate in the winter or it only runs on selected day of operation. Also FF will take the most direct flight to get them from point A to point B.

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.
