What plane is Continental planning on using to replace thier dc-10-30 on their nonstop ewr-hnl route. I've heard the 764er but is that aircraft capable of making it to Hawaii safely with a full load? Or will it be the 762er? Anyone who has any info on this, thanks.

Continental will use the 767-400 on the Honolulu routes, but they will be among the last DC-10s to be retired. They will most likely operate in a special Hawaii configuration like the DC-10. The 764 will have no problem flying to Honolulu at all, the rumor that Delta had problems flying ATL-HNL is compeletely false. The 767-400 can fly perfectly across the Atlantic and to Rio without any difficulty at all.

The Hawaii and Co Mic DC-10s will be the last to go. CO's 764s seat 235 people. CO will probably reconfigure a few 764s when the time comes to fly the Hawaii routes (no Business First, more economy seats).

The 282-seat DC-10-30's will leave the fleet last, and I mean very last, probably after the MD-80s. There will be no special 767-400 configuration for Hawaii as far as I know. We are trying to keep the fleet as common as possible, making our a/c types virtually interchangeable, with the exception of the 757. However, if a a set of 767s are designated to the Pacific, then I would expect to see a more fitting configuration for the markets Air Mike serves. The 767-400ER is ETOPS 180 certified, so it can cover the the Hawaiian routes, and it is perfectly safe to carry a full load EWR-HNL, but not much further than that without making some tradeoffs.

I am wondering if anyone can help me out here but I found this quite odd while looking at the Continental timetable. Well all the "Hawaii" DC-10's are shown as D10 in the timetable and the other international DC-10's are shown as D1C, well the EWR-HNL is shown as D1C. Why would they use the international DC-10 on the Hawaii route? I know 40 people cant make that much difference in range. By the way Im pretty sure that when they replace the DC-10's to Hawaii they will probably keep BusinessFirst.

Adam84: CO is replacing the 'International' DC-10 on EWR-HNL with the 282 seat DC-10 very soon. I don't know exactly when, though. I'll be curious to see if they change the timetable to say D10 instead of D1C.

We had a daily bulletin a few weeks ago that said we were going to start standardizing all remaining DC-10's. The D1C you are reffering to is a Buisnessfirst equipped DC-10. Ditto for the IAH and LAX- HNL '10s. They are all BF equipped, for now at least. I'm looking forward to getting rid of the old 3-holer's and I'm sure you can expect a 764 on those HNL routes.

Peace,
