I am traveling on CO72 Friday night from HNL to IAH. I have been on this and all the IAH/HNL flights a number of times. They are ALWAYS 764-400...either 767 or 764 per continental tables. However for this flight it will be a 762! I at first thought it may be an equipment swap due to maintenance of some sort. However another thread on here was talking about 764's running IAH-LAX and IAH-DEN right now because they do not currently need as many for Europe....so if there is not equipment shortage what is the 762 doing out here??

Friday 12/26 CO72 is a B767-200 Ship 151

Flight 73/72 doesn't operate everyday and the bookings don't require a larger aircraft.

It will be a B764 again when the flight returns in the spring.

This may become the norm as the airlines are all reducing capacity to boost revenues.

I think that the 762 will stay on the 2nd IAH-HNL run for a while due to the need for the 764 elsewhere though.

That makes no sense...... since CO only has the 767-200 and 767-400 logic will say 767 means 762

Not quite...
'767' designation for CO means Pacific configuration 767-400 i.e. fewer Business First seats and more Y
'764' is normal 767-400s
'762' are 767-200ERs

That's alright - judging by your username you wouldn't be that familiar with CO's internal designations - lol; besides its Christmas - we are allowed a few mistakes.

Thanks everyone. It just seemed odd that the 2nd flight was 762. I sure it has been before but I have never seen it loaded in there before.

It was actually announced sometime ago that the second Houston flight would be downgauged to a 762. I imagine especially with the widebody fleet being stretched thin as it already is, and Shanghai service being started with no additional 777s until 2010, the 764s are needed elsewhere.

Actually flights 72 and 73 do operate daily, and seats do get filled, even in winter. To reitirate, there is simply a greater need for the 764 on another route.

And Merry Christmas to all!

And by boosting unit revenues you are going to boost revenue. What don't you understand about what I had posted.

It used to be daily and was reduced to 5 times a week for the last month or so. It goes back to a 764 during the first week in January. The flight goes away after 1/5 and comes back in the spring.

Wow, I didn't even realize that. Thanks for the correction.

"Even" in winter?! If anything, demand to HNL is as its highest in the wintertime when mainlanders escape to the Isles for warm-weather holidays. If anything, downgauging to a 762 would allow CO to up their yields on the route since they'd have the luxury of charging more for the fewer seats offered.

Here's a selfish plug for a number of my trip reports I've posted on CO's 762 in both Y and BF cabins. Enjoy!

So looks like your B762 flight left at 2AM thanks to the island-wide blackout, huh? Must have been chaotic at HNL!
