For the same price, I can fly either a COEX ERJ-145, a NW DC9-30 or a CO 737-500. Which is the better choice? I tend to like the solo seat on the ERJ, but service wise, is there any difference? I'm connecting to CO EWR-AMS as a side note...

If you are an average size person i would go with the regional jet. Otherwise i would go for the 737-500...the DC-9s will be with northwest for a LONG time  Big thumbs up

How is transferring at EWR between CO, COEX or NW to a CO intl flight?

You won't have to change terminals (not that big of a deal... you just hop on the AirTrain) if you take the CO or COEX flight whereas you would have to go from Terminal B to Terminal C to catch your AMS flight if you take NW.

I'd go with CO or COEX.

(edited for clarification)

CO will be in terminal C at EWR, while NW is in B. Not a big problem to transfer between the two, but you will def. have to leave secure area from B-C. On CO, they usually have a cold sandwich on the MSP-EWR route, while NW will have a beverage and bag of pretzels (or similar).

I know it's a short flight, but there's a little more comfort in coach on the DC9.

It's very easy to transfer between CO's international flights and their Domestic/CoEx gates... Basically you just have to walk over a concourse... However going from International to a NW flight is a bit more tricky as you would either have to take the monorail to Term. B or you can also walk (don't walk  Big grin ).

Personally I recommend the ERJ, I find the seats in them so much more comfortable than mainline seats, as well as the single "A" side of the plane

Why not nonstop on NW/KL from MSP-AMS?

Boeing757/767, several reasons,
1. Been there, done that
2. I rather sit in a 777 with PTVs than an old DC10
3. I've never flown CO, other than COEX IAH-ELP-IAH. Heard good things about them

I've also looked at doing NW DTW-AMS and then KL AMS-JFK. I know KL keeps their beverage/snack cart out during the flight. NW still doesn't do this do they? Do KL serve free beer on longhaul? I know I got a free Heineken onboard an F70 TRF-AMS the last time I flew.

EWR is an exceptionally easy airport for connections if you are only flying on CO. They have one terminal at EWR (Terminal C) that is connected entirely post-security. If you are arriving COEx, you have a maybe 5-8 minute walk to get to your mainline gate, and if you are on mainline, it could be right next door up to ten minutes away. Take a look at their terminal map:



The curved area where ticketing is highlighted in purple is where dropoff occurs. The ticket counters are all along this curve, international upstairs and domestic downstairs. Security is behind the ticket counters, with stations in front of the entrances to C-1 (on the right, mainline), C-2 (in the middle, COEx), and C-3 (on the left, mainline - the newest one). Behind the security screening stations is one long hallway lined with glass that goes between the three concourses, with a hallway extending off of the corridor into each concourse. The map doesn't show it very well - the rather large rectangle in front of C-3 extends all the way between the three concourses. It couldn't be easier for connections.

Dude, take CO, make your connection easier. Nicer planes. And the ERJs have leather seats with a decent recline.

Kai, get a left-hand seat on an ERJ. It is slick. Bring your laptop with some movies and/or music.
