It seems that CO currently does not have enough 777-200ERs to serve the amount of routes they are needed on. The EWR-MAN route will be switched to other equipment in the spring of 01 as the -200ERs are needed on the EWR-HKG run. Will CO order more 777s to fill the demand they have? What about 777-200LRs for the EWR-HKG run?

Off the subject I know, but on Christmas Day Continental parked one of their 777's on our gate 3 in EWR, thats right in front of our shop. Wowsters!!

You're only as good as your last departure.

CO has two more 772's on order, but they won't show until '02. I would expect more will be ordered sometime down the line, but management is being very careful; they want to be sure there will still be a need when the aircraft come online two years hence. Last word I've heard about the -LR version is that CO doesn't feel they are needed. However, this belief is very much subject to revaluation as decisions are made about new markets.
