Many people have frequently stressed the fact that CO has a "widebody shortage". So in my free time, I thought up about an order that would be good for them. Note: This is only a THOUGHT

I believe that they should excercise their remaining nine 777 orders as well as place another firm order for 10 more. Seven of these would be Long Range 200s, the rest would be the normal type they have in their fleet now.
They would be used for the following routes:

EWR-HKG*
IAH-HKG*
EWR-SIN*
GUM-NRT
HNL-NRTx2
EWR-EZE
EWR-GRU
LAX/EWR-HNL-SYD
EWR-KIX
IAH-SEL

*200LR
All of the routes except GUM-NRT require an a/c utilization of two.

Why would they need ALL LRs? The range is not always necessary, and the reason they don't have any to begin with is because the LR's were just launched this year.

I thought there was rumor that CO would order 5 firm 10 options of LRs soon?
