That upgrade is being made possible with the introduction of 2 new 777's in early 2007, yet we'll probably not see a major impact for a year with all 18 777's having to undergo heavy checks in HKG in 2007.

CO has their heavy maintenance on Widebodies done in Hong Kong, the light line maintenance for widebodies is performed at EWR, HNL, IAH, LAX.
They do all narrobody maintenance (737s, 757s) in house, narrow body heavy maintenance facilities are located at Houston Hobby and Orlando. Light line narrobody maintenance is performed at EWR, IAH, CLE and im not sure but they had a hangar in Denver not sure if it's still utilized.
Hi, any idea when this will happen. When I flew CS1 (HNL-GUM) on May29th, the equipment was changed from a 764 to a 772 as it was heading on to HKG for maintenance. If there is definitely a "schedule" going on for this type of activity, I would to try and time my flights around these 772 equipment changes. After arriving in GUM, the 772 continued on to HKG with Pilots and F/A's in tow.
It was truly a memorable experience as I had never been on CO's 772 up until that time.
