CO Using A 757-300 To AUS?

I was searching on the CO website for pricing to some destinations and looking at the CO timetable and came upon this...

Marked with red astrick! Should be CO340.
Is CO flying the 757-300 into AUS this October? Can anyone from CO verify that this is indeed true or a typo in the system and on the CO website?

If not a typo i'll be booking a day trip for 178.00 r/t AUS-IAH-LAS-IAH-AUS for the mileage and just to fly this rare bird here in AUS.

Thanks,

Not unusual as the 753 has to go somewhere the previous evening and return to IAH in the morning. AUS is as good as any close in airport to IAH to operate the 753.

One might think the evening IAH-MCO and early morning MCO-IAH trip would be preferred, but the aircraft is not available to leave IAH at 1930, so it goes to AUS at 2125.

IAH-MSY and return gets a B752 or B753 not only for some overnights but also turns during the day....AUS and SAT as well from IAH may get the 200/300's.

Yes, IAH-MSY flight 1523 and back to IAH on flight 622 has been a scheduled B753 since early this month. We also get other random 753s and widebodies on occasion. Last week we got a 762 and a 764 on one of the IAH-MSY-IAH turns.


The good old days: Delta L-1011s at MSY

It is also cheaper to park a 753 in AUS than it is in IAH. Our A300s overnighted in MSY for the same reason.

I just flew a domestic trip a few weeks back and we took the 753 to SAT from IAH to an overnight and brought a 752 back to IAH.

Im not sure what everyones all psyched about. CO's been doing that as long as ive been a controller here. (1 year as of saturday  Smile

We also get the odd 764 to MCO. 753's do SAT, AUS, MSY all the time. As 717zulu said, ive also seen 762's overnight to MSY, ive seen a 764 go there once on an overnight. Its not that uncommon is IAH has morning t-storms for the 764's from HNL to divert to MSY.

AUS-IAH traffic is high for CO and I don't see a 753 as being a oddity.

I'll be looking for her in a few weeks.

CO has used the 757's intermittently for at least the last three years. Sometimes there's two, sometimes none. AA also flies 757's, although I think they are taking them out at the next schedule change...several daily last month.

Working for UA, I keep hoping we might get a 752, but I better not hold my breath. Currently its just express, A319(Occasionally swapped for a 320) and 735/733's.

Why on earth would you seek out a 753? Do you know how much time it takes to get off that thing if it's full and you're in row 487?

If the route have a high demand, why not sending a 757, also maybe the route has some cargo demand? who knows!

Do the 75Xs ever fly AUS-EWR-IAH and back?

Doesn't CO have enough remote parking for these a/c? I'd think IAH would give CO a good deal on fees with it being CO's second largest hub.

Houston is the largest hub for CO not the seond... EWR is second, CLE third and GUM fourth.


The flights between AUS-IAH has a high load factor and the B753 is frequently full.
Flight 1533 tonight IAH-AUS is a B753 ship 855 and it is sold out.

Though it's a smaller int'l gateway, IAH is still a farrrrr larger hub than EWR for CO.

and i guarantee you on a full 753 there are still PAX that have the nerve to ask the FAs for 2 or 3 bevs at a time while the poor FAs are trying to serve 170+ people in 20 minutes  Smile

In my experiences here in AUS anyway, I've never seen anything but a 737 on the AUS-EWR-AUS route.

Tahnks ADXMatt & ConcordeBoy for the information. It makes complete sense to me now.

I'm sure CO does very well on their EWR-AUS-EWR runs. Maybe they'll run a 75X someday from time to time.

Because it's fun to fly on an aircraft type that you haven't flown on before.

Ive flown many 753's and like my jetlinkcoln friend, I avoid them at all costs. If I have to get stuck on that god awful aircraft, I use my miles to get in first class so I dont have the pain of being towards the rear and taking longer to get off the plane than the flight from AUS-IAH  Smile
