So when will we hear an official announcement about this? Is CO going to redo the interiors of the TZ aircraft to match CO's? Do the TZ 753's have the LCD drop down monitors? What is the terms of cost and financing?

You can bet that we will outfit the airplanes so they are totally common with the rest of the 757-300 fleet. One of Gordon's most important lessons is to maintain consistency of product, so I wouldn't expect anything similar to the early 1990s where we had as many as 7 different interior styles in service to go with a variety of paint schemes on the outside.
The 757-300 is fitted with 12 First Class and 210 coach seats.

Thanks for the pax #s info.
So, none of these 753s would be used for domestic service? I ask, because we get some 753s in Denver. . .don't know about them recently, but I do know the ones I've seen here in Denver always came from Houston.
Ding! You are now free to keep supporting Frontier.

Scorpio, I was wondering that same thing too. I don't think FI's only 753 can even make it to MSP from KEF, much less one to take the entire trip across the pond even from New England without restrictions in either direction of some sort.

COs upcoming ex ATA B 753s will be a good fit too to the Continental Micronesia Fleet on key-high density regional routes from Guam such as Japan-HKG-TPE etc.
These B 753s should also replace B 767s operating on the LAX-HNL route as the B 753s are more suited to this mode of operations than the longer range B 764s are.
The extra B 753s as someone said will also come in handy for medium haul trans-atlantic flights from EWR to DUB and SNN + extra/charter flights in the peak (and short) winter season from EWR/CLE/IAH hubs to popular beach cities such as Florida-Bahamas-Bermuda-Mexico and Caribbean.
If CO has no need to use al 12 B 753s, it can too look into leasing them out (for extra cash) to European charter/LCC airlines who would relish the extra capacity of the B 753 in the winter season on flights to Greece-Spain-Turkey and Portugal.
: I thought NW had also expressed a desire or a wish that they had ordered more 753's.... wonder how they will (or they do) feel about this deal.
: NW won't want the RR engines. I dunno about the 753 replacing all the high density. ATA's 753s are ETOPS, but that doesn't mean CO will maintain the c

: Didn't ATA say they were keeping the 753's for charter work?
