Do the Classic 767 ERs that continental flies have the old style interior or the new "777 style" cabin that the -400s have? I flew the -400 to HNL and was very impressed but my flight to London in march is on the classic... As it stands now the 767 is my favorite pond crossing aircraft because of the 2-3-2 cabin... if im with 2 friends / family 2 of us can get the aisle in the center section and if i am with just one other person we can take the two section and only one of us gets stuck in the window...

Define "classic". Continental's 762s were ordered and delivered around the same time as the 764s and hence have similar interiors.

CO's oldest 767s were delivered in 2000, they don't operate "classics".

All of their 767s from the 200 to the 400 series have the 777 style interiors and ptvs.

The only difference you may notice between the 762 and 764 is that the 764 has the oval windows of the 777, while the 762 has the original 767 windows. Otherwise, CO's 762s have all of the same interior enhancements (including the 777-style "quiet" toilet seats, as I recall!) and are quite nice.

Ahlfors is correct. The Continental 767-200ERs are as young as the -400ERs. They were ordered at the same time, they both use 62,000 lb. thrust General Electric engines, and so yes, I would imagine they have the new "777" style cabin. They are much newer than the -200ERs American flies. They should not have the old style, considering they are no more than 4 years old.

CO's 762 experiences (coach and biz) rank among my best flights of all time.

The 762 is still a current model. Classic is a bit harsh, you know this isn't UA, AA, or DL now...

Actually, the 762ERs utilize 56,500 pounds thrust each; with 63,500 on the 764ERs

"stuck" with the window? That is the best place to be, I have to see liveries and clouds. Also, it is really cool to see other planes in a holding pattern at LHR

The Continental 767-200ER fleet all have the 777 style interiors. At current the 767-200ER is utilized on routes to Europe, and South America. The 767-200ER feature modern interiors of blue, grey, and white. The seats have adjustable headrests, seatback videos, and audio systems.

What is intended with the comment "Classic". The Continental 767-200ER fleet is only 4 years old!

Any chance that Continental might order any more 767s, either -200ERs or -400ERs? I think that they have a few options on both types, but I'm not sure. As of now, though, all have been delivered.

From personal experience on Continental Airlines to from Sao Paulo and Milan.. The 767-200ER is a very comfortable aircraft and is great for flights time of up to 10 hours!

I am doing the Flight to GIG tomorrow night. 10 hrs and I am in Business First....The cabin there is 2-1-2 and the coach cabin is 2-3-2. So both are very comfortable. If you are flying as a couple the coach 2 section is nice. No one is sitting next to you. Just you and your partner.

Thanks guys when i said "Classic" i was using it to refer to the 200 and 300 being of a differnt genneration then the -400 So short of not having the 777 style windows (which i wont see in the center section anyways) the cabin is going to be the same as the -400

I think the 200s don't have PTVs at the seats, while the 400s do.

No, the 762 have identical interiors to the 764... as mentioned earlier, they're about the same age...

The seats in BizFirst in the 764 are very comfortable but not quite as nice as the seats in the 777. I don't know about the 762.

Haven ridden in both CO's 767-200 and 767-400, (BizFirst and coach), the airplane interiors are IDENTICAL (except for the windows on the -400, as indicated above). Same type of seats, PTVs, even lavatories. If I didn't know better, I would've thought I was in the same type of aircraft.

CO ordered them this way, that way they could interchange the aicraft according to a routes need, and the passengers wouldn't know the difference.

It has been said by my dad (a CO employee) that they ant not that happy with the 764s and those options would go to the 772. He has also mentioned that there is a posibility of getting some 763ERs. The 763s would give them a lot more flexibility in the european markets as the is over a 50 seat difference between the 762 and 764.

The casual traveler and some FFs would not know if they were in a 762, 764 or 772 because the interiors are VERY alike (and exteriors).

CO2BGR

The options on the -400 have not been rolled over to the 777.

And where did your dad get the -300 idea? There has been no mention of that in any crew room I've been in the last year.

Is your dad Dave?

I havent seen talk of swapping out the 764 orders for 777 orders, and while I have heard mention of the 300 series, it was not on any high level. So therefore I wouldn't put too much in it. I would tend to agree with Calpilot on this one as he flies them, and would likely hear about it.

Well I'm just telling you that I've been flying the B767 and 757 at CO for seven years of the 17 I've been there; and there has been No talk of -300's coming on line since we gave up the aicraft after our first order.

No one in the Chief pilots office has heard about this, no one in the B757 traning depatment has any idea about it. So my point is ConcordeBoy who are you going to take your info from a 16-25 year old with a good guess or someone who flys the dam thing with the company? Just go belive what you want I don't care, "gee".

"that they ant not that happy with the 764s and those options would go to the 772."

I believe CO did convert "some" original orders for 767-400s to 777s, but I think only about four and this was about 3-4 years ago. Originally CO ordered 24 767-400s, Im not sure how many they have today.

I believe they switched the 767-400 to 777 orders because of the launch of the Hong Kong flight and the success of the Tel Aviv flight, btw I think CO still has a couple of options for both the 767-200 and 777 but no more 767-400 options.

It was said before, but I feel it is well worth stressing- COs 767-200s are brand new and by no means classics.
