I just got word from a CO insider that CO is considering flying to VCE. I hope they start soon. Anybody know of any other new CO routes.

this along with a few other routes have been thrown around the block for the past couple months............but i'm not to certain..........i dont see it as a great route with a 767-200.....more routes that would be beneficial than this.

ATH has already been announced beginning 06/07/07 with a 762.

Good news for Venice if this it true. Would it be the airports only scheduled long-haul link?? I know USairways used to fly to PHL with a 762 but am unsure if this still operates.

US to PHL is seasonal I think. DL also have Venice service (and have done for a number of years) and EK start Dubai later this year. May also be some other less frequent routes

This wouldn't surprise me at all, Venice is a growing long haul market.
In any case CO needs a 762 to fly EWR-VCE (4169 mi) since a 752, wingletted or not, wouldn't be able to go westbound without restrictions.

Yes, DL has had JFK-VCE for years now (daily in the summer and 4-5x weekly in the winter). ATL-VCE started last summer (4 or 5x weekly) and is also operating this winter (3x weekly IIRC).

It would be a very successful route.

There have been many talks about it...and it seems to be a likely bid now that PVG is out of the question.

They have to wait until Virgin Nigeria gets the go.

What about CAI? I haven't heard anything, but I think it is something of an undeserved market from the US... and a 762ER could do it, right?

I don't think you are going to see too many more announcements for 2007 service being that we are limited on long haul aircraft and still need some 757 lift domestically until we get the 737-900ER's in 2008/9. We do fly charters to Moscow and have a simulator period devoted to this airport for our 757/767 pilots in the 767 simulator. In 2008 I'm betting you see a lot of expansion announcements. We'll be getting the new airplanes for 2009/2010 flying therefore 2008 should prove to be interesting in seeing just what kink airline Continental plans to be.

the 787s should really give CO good breathing room along with the 739s giving them more flexibility with their 757s/762s

These charters are few and far between. Last one we did was when Bush went to Russia. Wish we had more, but not likely, at least not to Moscow (charter that is).

Quoting IAHERJ (Reply 19):

We have 41 752s and still have room to grow internationally with them. We are seeing increased flying to LIS, MAD, CDG, AMS, GLA and EDI, to name a few.

As long as we get 'thinner' routes to European cities that need a 757, we'll be fine for a few more. We are getting more 738s this year, eventhough we are retiring/returning 733s, to supplement any 752s flying domestically.

According to CO's PC schedule (looked at a Thursday in July), it looks like 28 752's are locked into international service.

I count a total of 38 European flights daily
752 - 24 RTs, 762 - 5 RTs, 764 - 6 RTs, 772 - 7 RTs. Does not include 772's to TLV, DEL, HKG, NRT, PEK

752S opeRate a daily roundtrip in these EWR markets
ARN, CDG, SNN, SNN/DUB, AMS, BCN, BFS, BRS, CGN, CPH, EDI, EDI, GLA, HAM, LGW, LGW, MAN, MAN, OSL
Plus one aircraft on GLA-EWR days 2347 and CDG-EWR X234
Plus 752s on these routes (one unit each)
CLE-LGW, EWR-LIM, IAH-LIM, IAH-UIO
There are VERY limited 757 flights on LAX-EWR/IAH, IAH-EWR, EWR-MCO.

It looks like the 752/753 routing are not assigned at this point.

While I'd love to see more stations opened in Europe, it looks like added operations on the following routes is growing markets instead of adding markets.
EWR-LGW, 3RT
EWR-CDG, 3RT
EWR-FCO, 2RT (probably also flew in 2006)
EWR-AMS, 2RTs
EWR-EDI 2 RTs (probably also flown in 2006)
EWR-MAD 2 RTs

EWR-LIS 2x this summer

We still have a few 757s to grow with.
