CO Resumes CLE-LGW Today

We've danced around it in a few other threads, but I'll give it its own thread. CO's nonstop service CLE-LGW on a 757-200 with Business First, 16/156. Today, it looks pretty full, about 83%, though other days, it looks pretty darned empty this May, though it should improve as summer sets in a little more. (My info is based solely on the CO.com seat selector, so it's probably inaccurate.) Departs as CO66 at 1930, arrives 750. Returns as CO67 departing at 1155, arrives at 1520, and continues to LAX (not sure if it is the same plane). According to a fellow a.netter, it operates today with N19117. I wish CO luck with it and hope it stays year round this year.

Usually May is a light month for Europe travel though you are right it will pick up as Summer begins.

Could we see any of CLE-LGW services being operated by the 757-200 with winglets this summer?

Go Clevleand! Every time I think of that 757 flying the 3750 mile CLE-LGW route, I juxstapose 16 Business First passengers comparatively squeezed into a little narrow body, while Virgin Atlantic's Upper Class 747-400 passengers out of the East and West Coast departure points are enjoying the Upper Class Suite with lie-flat beds, walk around space with a full bar, IFE and anything else Richard Branson can dream up. As for an analogy, it's like the differential between runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks trip out to Albuquerque on a Greyhound bus, and her First Class trip home on a Delta airlines MD-88. Certainly Continental is not getting many through passengers eager to go on that flight.

Lets see, there must be enough controversial tongue-in-cheek wrath in this post to keep the CO CLE-LGW thread going for a while.

Yes, 66 LAX-CLE, and 67 CLE-LAX is a scheduled 738, except, I believe, for Saturday, when 67 goes with a 752 LGW-CLE-LAX.

Hey, 757 service is better than no service. Plus, did you not see the other thread? CO is considering putting seatback IFE on all the 752s and converting them all to international. And you do save a couple of bucks with CO.

I have heard many times that CO would very much like to get CLE-LGW back on the schedule on a year-round basis; operating 5 times per week during the winter months. One rumor suggested that year round service might return with the Winter 2005-6 timetable, ie, starting around 1st November 2005.

In recent months, there has been no new information on this topic? Any update on whether CLE-LGW will go year-round or remain seasonal?

I have flown VS a few times and honestly was, sorta let down. From JFK-LHR it was really good. Awesome IFE, and such. But another time LHR-IAD also a 744, it was, just passable J class less service it "seemed" and lesser IFE for sure. I have had much better (and equally tepid) flights on CO757s. My brother has flown VS ex-LGW and was very disapointed. After he took VS LGW-MIA he was done with them and sticks to CO or DL now.

My only real issue with the 75B was the IFE in BF wasn't the same. But it seems this will be fixed soon. After that is will all be in your head! Besides I'd take a motorized kite if it went non-stop to were I wanted to go.

Say Falcon84, my airline would use a 28" seat pitch and a 16" wide seat internationally if we could get away with it. At least you people still know the definition of passenger service...and those Business First seats are comfy.

But we're up to 17 replies now in my favorite CLE topic thread.

They may have a lot of error, but it's better than me constantly posting here asking about loads. I find those "what are the loads, 'cause I want to know if I'll get an upgrade" threads annoying. This is the only way I have to inquire to CO employees. Unfortunately we all can't work for an airline.  Sad

If Bermuda II is amended, but not abolished, then CO is legally guaranteed to be the 1st USA airline to gain Heathrow access.

If, however, the bilateral is holistically abolished and replaced with something akin to an OpenSkies agreement... then it's every USA airline for itself.
