Continental only has about 4 753s right now; they are only to be used on domestic routes as they do not have the range of the 752s nor Buisiness First. The 757s from CLE to LGW are -200s. Continental order the 753s for high-density domestic low-yield routes.

With only four in the fleet, and CO having cancelled the rest of the order - do we see them removing these aircraft from the fleet, due to lack of commonality with the remaining fleet? If one goes Tech they are in trouble, especially if the four aircraft are based in different airports.

The 753 service to MSY runs through November 1, then it gets moved back to the NYC-Florida service for the Winter. Same with the BWI-CLE-LAS run. It will probably come back...been here for two years now on and off. What a sharp looking plane, and an absolute pleasure to fly on.

You're right, United_Fan, the 753 is Continental's only heavy into CLE. We see 777s on occasion but only if they're diverted. I was lucky enough to see Peter Max at CLE a few months ago.. got a pic of it and it's on jetphotos.net.
