CO takes delivery of a new Boeing 737-900ER

CO took delivery of a brand new Boeing 737-900ER Friday as CO continues to add more cost-saving, fuel-efficient airplanes to its fleet. Aircraft 426 is the 14th -900ER to join CO’s fleet in 2008.

The aircraft is equipped with 20 first-class and 153 coach seats and includes a mid-cabin lavatory for increased passenger convenience.

I remember hearing that a 738 was fitted with power outlets a while back. Is that conversion still going on?

Is there a way to decipher a 737-900/ER with a regular 737-900 in the CO schedules or are they both listed as 739?

if I remember correctly the 73Gs, 738s, 739s, 73Es and 752s, plus the widebodies, offer in-flight power (or are in line to be retrofit to do so). I do not know if the 753s are scheduled to be retrofit to offer power.

Beyond that I do not know the status or completion of the retrofit projects.

And I also need to correct myself: the 73E offers nose-to-tail in-flight power.

I believe a 739ER is listed as a 73E. You can also visit co's pda site to see what a/c (plus the amenities) they've assigned to the route a few days before the departure.

Rode ship #512 (737-800, delivered 5/08) last week and power points were active and very useful during what became a rather lengthy delay, diversion, and unplanned overnight stay in CLE...

That's the first 738 I have seen power outlets on, and I believe is the newest or 2nd newest of its type in the CO fleet.

Now with LiveTV coming online starting next year, will they offer inseat power nose to tail as well, similar to the AVOD conversion with the 752?

Oh yeah, and since I'm on the topic, and surprisingly there has been no recent post, what's the current percent completion of AVOD installation for the 772 and 752?

CO is upgrading IAH-CCS from 738 to 739 effective August 1st. I guess this particular frame addition to the fleet is the one making this upgrade possible.

As per the Flyertalk FAQ:

Quote:
757-200:
All BusinessFirst seats are equipped with a personal AVOD system featuring up to 25 feature films, 25 television shows and 50 audio CD titles, as well as 110V universal power outlets. These planes are currently being refit for AVOD and 110V power outlets in economy. The first 752 with AVOD in Y entered service in July 2007 (Ship #130). As of July 16th, 25 of the 41 752s have been converted. The tail numbers for the converted planes are: 101-110, 112, 113, 114, 115, 118, 126, 127, 130, 132, 133, 135 and 137 - 140. The conversion is expected to be completed by the end of 2008, according to an internal company memo.

25 of CO's 41 757-200s have AVOD in Y, as of July 16th.

Quote:
777-200:
As of 6/20/08 there are 9 of 20 772s are equipped with AVOD for all classes: Ship numbers 010, 013, 014, 015, 016, 017, 018, 019 and 020.

The latest is that 10 of CO's 20 777-200ERs now have AVOD throughout.

Per the reference previously to pda.continental.com, look for the aircraft number. The original 737-900s are ships 401-412. The -900ERs start at 413 and go up from there.

I'm flying EWR-HNL this August, the 767-400 fleet will get the AVOD when the 757 and 777 installation is complete.

By 2010 CO will have 74 737-900 / 737-900ERs, second only to the 737-800 in their fleet. So you will see them pretty much anywhere CO has a mainline station in the US, Central America, Caribbean, Colombia etc..

I flew AUS-IAH and IAH-MSY on the ER a couple weeks ago so it seems as if they're using them for pretty much any route that they use the standard 739 on. Anybody know what the routes the ER is being used on that the standard 739 *cannot* be used?

I'm not sure what you're talking about if you are implying that the 900ER is far superior to the 800. Both are good planes and CO is taking delivery of both the 800 and 900ER currently. DL is taking 700s and AA will be taking new 800s.

CO has five more 737-800s to be delivered, and 58 737-900ERs. The CASM of the 737-900ER cannot be beat.

Not sure as Boeing has removed the 737-900 from their range charts. EWR-California maybe...

IIRC the new 739ERs don't have any sort of IFE on them yet do they? Why wouldn't CO add the LCD screens just like on any of the other 739s or 738s? (or for at least flight tracking display and safety video?) I wouldn't think that they weigh that much to begin with either...


"KEEP CLIMBING" -- DELTA
25 RoseFlyer : Every pound matters on a plane. Those screens require quite a bit of weight between the EE space, control unit, wiring and actual display units. Seco
26 AznMadSci : Yes, the 739ERs were and are initially delivered with no IFE to make it easier to install LiveTV that will come online in 2009. I don't think it's so
27 STT757 : Why spend the money to install the LCD entertainment system, only to spend the money to rip them out when they are replaced with the AVOD system next
28 COA735 : That sucks. LOL I just told my girlfriend. She's having a fit.
29 Tommy767 : Does CO have any plan to rip out these LCD systems once the AVOD?

31 AznMadSci : DirectTV, similar to what F9 uses? I thought it was LiveTV, which is what B6 use.

37 STT757 : New deliveries go to one of three maintenance bases: LAX, Houston Hobby, MCO.
38 CHRISBA777ER : I'm flying EWR-SXM with CO on 28th December this year - any chance of getting a 739ER? Not been on one before.
