You can probably figure it out by the seating chart.

may 4th is to far out to determine what a/c configuration it will be.

Hi from downtown Anchorage.
As a Continental Elite member, I can attest to the above comment that the schedules for May are not yet finalized.
That equipment varies by season; off season, it's a 739. Summer time and Holidays, it's a 757-300.

My prediction at this point is that you'll be on a 753. But, that's just my best guess.

Well I would think it depends on what cabin you are in. If you are in the rear of a 757-300 and have a connection, good luck! ANC-SEA is what, 3 hours? Not a horrible amount of time in domestic coach, so I wouldn't worry too much about a 753 over a 739.

As for the seating charts, yes it's too early. Check 4-6 weeks out.

My guess is the spring and summer schedule for CO will be interesting as it unfolds and the actual ships are scheduled, alot of new options with the extra 800's and 900ER deliveries.
