For the summer schedule, CO has a few cities with twice daily service. Take for instance their flights to CDG. They have a 777 and a 762 going daily. Why don't they fly the 752 instead of the second 762. The 752 has 16 BF seats and 156 Y seats. The 762 on has a net of 2 more seats! I know the configuration of the 762 includes a slightly higher 25 BF seats but, you have over 45 BF seats on the 777.
So, why not save your 762 to service another destination like DME and send a 752 to CDG instead. The 762 has the range they need for further expansion.

CDG has a great high yield....that extra 9 BF seats can bring in an extra $72,000 dollars per segment. ALSO cargo capacity is increased as well.


okay, I'm waiting for the rich to spread the wealth around to me. Please mail your checks to my house.

Ah, cargo. I know they started to do this with LGW. I think it was a very smart move. They already have 100+ premium seats with the 777s they operate from EWR. The cargo should be handled no problem by the T7s. So the 752 basically adds just more seats for CO - Great idea!!! But still, on routes like FCO and AMS, they operate a 764 and a 762. The 762 seems almost like a waste trans-atlantic because it has a low capasity.

i can tell you i have cut many many pallets going to LGW out of IAH....cargo is just a premium for us that we really need.
