Hi All....

A CO 764 (N66057) made a visit to CLE today enroute AMS-IAH due to full lavs. She arrived at about 1615 and as of 1631 she is sitting at the end of the A concourse.

Just passing on the message!

Don

Back to the subject. It was CO 47 AMS-IAH, diverted to CLE, because the crappers were full, and needed dumped before continuing to IAH. It arrived at CLE at 1620 local and left at 1650 local.

Sexy, eh?  Silly

One would presume that they pumped them in AMS, but that's a scary thought regardless, especially with the vacuum-flush toilets on these aircraft.  Wink

Out of curiosity, do you know why it was way down on the A concorse? I thought CO only operated out of "C" and "D" (express) gates at Cleveland...and every time I've been there I think there's been at least one gate open (not that that means anything, of couse, since I'm there like once a month)

(Just out of curisoity, Don, some day ask any of your coworkers working either the ticket counter or gates (specifically C3) on the morning of the 25th if they got a card  Wink )

Probably due to the fact that since CO never flies any widebodies into CLE (where the ERJs make the 737s look like 747s), so they don't have the gate space to accomodate them.

Ignore my card comment, I really should pay more attention to usernames (as you may have put 2+2 together, C3=CO) before I post...though I'd like to think that I wasn't the only one doling out cards like a big smiling idiot on Christmas day.

One of these days, we should have a CLE meet, seems like there are a fair number of Clevelanders here.

That's where customs and immigration is. All the international arrivals needing clearance go there.

I believe there are gates adequate for widebodies on all concourses except D.

Edited to make the spelling mavens happy.

I believe only A and B are now widebody capable. Although it is technically possible to park a widebody at C, you would have to leave both gates on either side empty to do so. Also, the lines on the ramp are not painted for anything larger than a 757 (and that's only at 3 gates or so) which brings up a safety issue with the ground equipment. Assuming the lines on A and B have not been redrawn in the last several years, at least one of the United gates on B and at least one of gates A1, A3 and A5 as well as the customs gates on A can take a 767 size aircraft.

Last summer a CO 777 diverted for medical reasons while the 757 London arrival was at the customs gates. The 757's outbound EWR leg was delayed because it got stuck at A12 while the 777 was at A14. CLE is defintely cramped for space when anything larger than a 757 is parked.

I've seen wide bodies at C-5 or C-7 (not sure which), where CAL used to park A300s, and also, more recently, widebody charters at C-2.

The A300's have been gone for a long time, the lines are repainted every few years. Also, I may be wrong but I believe that both C-1 and C-2 are RJ only gates. C-2 may be able to take 737's as well but certainly not widebodies.

Just consulted the layout... Make my reference to C-2 mean C-4, the first gate on the NW side.

Our definitions of "long time" aren't the same. For really ancient history, I believe UAL used to park their widebodies parallel to the terminal instead of nose-in and use two gates/jetways for the front and rear doors.

But more or less back to the topic, maybe CLE ought to designate a sterile pad for parking international diversions which do not intend to disembark all their pax.

B6 is also capable of parking a widebody a/c. Delta uses it for 76's for the Cleveland Browns charters.

C-3,C-5 and C-9 can handle widebodys, C-3 has a 767 stop mark... The 767 that diverted had three lavs inop, thats why it had to divert to dump the other lavs out.

It landed at A-14 because that is where customs is, and since no one can come off the aircraft on an international flight until they clear customs, and agent has to be present.

As for widebody capable gates, there are several gates that are wide-body capable: C-3, C-4, C-5, C-9, C-22 in a pinch. NW has parked a 744 at C-4 in the past on a diverson.


25 Mbm3 : The CO 757s usually park at C3 or C5, except for the LGW flights since it deplanes passengers at Terminal A for customs and immigration before being
26 Americanairfan : How comes they couldn't just wait to get to IAH? Was the plane 100% full?
27 Mbm3 : It becomes a safety and health issues if all of the lavs are inop or full. One would have to imagine it was pretty bad onboard if they diverted to CL
28 TymnBalewne : A few years back ('99 or so) a BA flight from LGW to BWI diverted to Gander because the toilets were full. Apparently, the company tasked with emptyin

30 Gilligan : Why would they have any use for customs? Should have just been a dump and go and maybe a few extra hundred in fuel to make up for the divert. No need
31 N766UA : It's all about ramp setup. In the '70s United used to have several DC-10s and 747s parked around C at one time, plus DC-8s.
32 MasseyBrown : Crain's Cleveland newspaper mentioned that since CO has signed a 10 year lease extension to 2016, the airport will begin $150 million worth of termina
