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 The 762 seems a bit more outdated by comparison, but it is no less roomy and comfy.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.
Quoting N484ER (Thread starter): When did Continental Airlines begin upgrading their 767-200/ER's? How many aircraft will be converted?
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.

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.

Quoting AKelley728 (Reply 11): Wasn't there talk of AC doing this to their 767s until the 787s come?
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.

: As per my post above, Thomsonfly's 767-200s have the enhanced interior, their 767-300s don't. I'm reposting the image from my previous post below alo
: That enhanced interior looks really nice! ... wait a sec... does FCA really use 2-3-2 for premium AND Economy?!
: The CO 764s are superb aircraft in which to fly - nice pitch, great IFE and good service. We used to get them into DUB (and indeed, 762s sometimes). H

: Yes FCA really do use the 2-3-2 configuration in Premium and Economy on the Boeing 767s. Plus, if they didn't those Photographs would show otherwise.
