This is a wonderful upgrade making this cabin look very stylish, spacious and modern. It looks great!  veryhappy  ... nice to see some new life on this older model  Smile

When did Continental Airlines begin upgrading their 767-200/ER's? How many aircraft will be converted?

These are new-build 767-200ERs and were delivered in this configuration between 2000 and 2002.

Basically all 767s ordered from 2000 on have the Signature Interior. Those ordered prior to 2000, but not yet built had the option of changing the Signature Interior instead of the old interior.

Is it possible to retrofit the 767 older models as far back as maybe 1982/83 with this cabin? I know FCA have the tarted up cabins but this cabin rocks on the 767.

I do believe it's an option - Wasn't there talk of AC doing this to their 767s until the 787s come?

Yup, and they seem to be just a tad bit more roomier too!

All of the CO 767s are a great ride. My outbound EWR-ZRH was upgraded to a 767-400 and that was the best ride I have ever experienced in any aircraft - just rock solid and you hardly felt the climb and as quiet as anything in the economy cabin. The 762 seems a bit more outdated by comparison, but it is no less roomy and comfy. It also rides solid though it is not as quiet. When combined with the 2-3-2 seating, the new 777-style cabin really gives the 767s that airy feel.

All of the 767s, the -200s included have the upgraded cabin. They have been flying since late 2000.

The IFE is very good; there is a variety of video/music/interactive features to keep one busy. It is not one of the superb AVOD systems found in some European/Asian airlines (not to mention the NWA A330s), but it is good enough. They are definitely worth checking out.

I had the pleasure of flying both the CO 767-224ER and the 767-424ER in BusinessFirst back in 2000 when these where factory-fresh. The service was impeccable in both instances. I especially loved the single middle seat in BusinessFirst; I felt I had the whole cabin to myself.

I flew CO EWR-GIG on the 767-224ER when they still had the route! They need to get non-stops from NYC back to GIG pronto! It is a fabulous city-pair and I believe GIG flights to the US have a great future.

Also, only 10 767-224ER's and 16 767-424ER's isn't quite a large fleet for CO, is it? I would imagine they could do with quite a bit more.

Not exactly.

There is a "Boeing Enhanced Interior" for the 767 that's available as a retrofit. I think First Choice has it? It is not the same as the 777 cabin, but it is much nicer than the standard 767.

Summer of 04 IAH-EWR had a 764 too. I have done the route on a 777 once before also.

I flew on the a 764( as far as I can recall) with the new interior in buisnessfirst EWR-HNL-EWR. It was the best flight on an American carrier I have had in a long time. Good food, good rest, good service, and a nice clean plane.

CO50 usually switches from a 762/777 to a 757 and then back to 762/777 during the winters, from what I've flown between the two fortresses.

That's because CO's 767s have 32" of pitch compared to the 31" of pitch in its 777s and narrowbody (except 753) fleet.

Some European charter carriers have 2-4-2 in their 767s, which is very tight indeed.

In my opinion CO has the best and the newest fleet of widebodies in the US. We will see the B764 in Madrid again in May/June (sadly it's a "downgrade" from a B777).

Good lord do they need to. AC 767s are HORRIBLE. Not to bash a good airline, but their 767 are definetly substandard on the inside. Unconfortable and shabby. However, the AC A333 I flew on was very nice.
