Please describe your experiences on this aircraft, flying to Europe or from Europe to the USA. I will be seated in
row 33-B on one soon. Just wondering what it is like, since CO is the only airline flying this jet on international flights.

I have flown this plane quite a few times already, interior is a lot like the 777's, although Business first is configured 2 - 1 - 2, instead of the 2 - 2 - 2 of the 777. Was a smooth ride etc. The entertainment system is the same as the 777 also. I have only flown Business first on this plane, so I cant comment on the seating etc in the back.

I have flown the 767-400 on :

LGW > EWR 3 times
EWR > LGW 3 times
EWR > GIG once
GIG > EWR once

If you have a specific question, let me know

I flew Newark-Paris in Novemeber, right after the 767-400ER was put on that route. It must have been not much older than a month old, and you could tell from the interior cleanliness. The 2-3-2 configuration was excellent! It's a good step down from that horrible 2-5-2 on the DC-10s. The entertainment system was great, although I really didn't get a chance to use it because it was a night flight and sorta took a long time to figure out how to use it. Gordon Bethune came on in the beginning with a video about how they're improving Continental's fleet and all about the PTVs. Upon boarding, I noticed that the BusinessFirst passengers sitting in the middle seats seemed to enjoy their position, being that most of them were single bussinessmen. The ride was also relatively quiter than the noisy three engines of the -10. I'd definitely pick the 767-400ER anyday!

Have a nice trip, and it would be great if you could post a report about it in the designated forum! Enjoy the 767-400ER!

I took one just last week, from EWR to CDG (Paris Charles de Gaulle). I was seated 24L. 33 would then be one of the last rows to the rear.

The ride was really smooth, even in the turbulences. Seats are great even if the pitch is pretty small. The PTVs are great too, with a remote controlling audio, video programs and video games (simple games, nothing fascinating).

I have never taken any CO 777 so I cannot compare (I flew on a AF747 and a UA777). But what struck me is that you do not seem to be in a large body plane (like a 747 or a 777). It is more cosy.

You will have a great flight.

Row 33 is at the beginning of the second coach class zone, about 3 rows back or so. The 764 is an excellent piece of machinery, and the configuration, with the PTV, interior design, comfortable seat, and great Continental staff (as always), it should be an excellent flight. I am running EWR-CDG in a few weeks, hopefully I will get the chance to operate your flight. I take the time to introduce myself to the pax over the PA on most of my flights, if the FA's don't take care of that for me in the beginning. If you are on the flight, just let one of the flight attendants know, I'll see if I can come back and have a chat with you.

If not, have a wonderful trip.

Sure, not a problem. I think it would be very interesting to have someone from the forum on one of my planes, and would make the routine flight much more enjoyable and not to mention memorable.

I know the odds aren't great that I'll be flying you to CDG, but I'm looking forward to finding out!

and to keep the good Continental flow going.... perhaps I will be non-reving on the flight, while you fly, Coboeing pushes, and Continentalewr watches.

I actually have been on one of your flights, but I cant remember which one, it was a 767-400 flight either from LGW>EWR>GIG

Bye for now
