They pretty much fly all the 73 variants in some fashion between EWR, IAH, and CLE. I am not sure if they have flown scheduled 757s or not, but I do know you may find one subbed in every now and then, especially during irregular ops, but nothing scheduled.

BOS was an MD80 and 733 station before, since NGs I don't think BOS has seen anything other than those. A 757 sub would probably be more likely from EWR than IAH due to the distance and location of the 757s.

Currently their are some scheduled flights operated by the Q400's to EWR and flights to CLE on the ERJ's. Also I remember a few years ago their used to operate flights with the B1900's from BOS, not sure where to (i think it was EAS service???)

Quoting Soxfan (Thread starter): Has Continental ever flown anything other than a 737 to Boston? If so, on what route, and when was the last time it was flown? On a related note, has CO flown every variant of their 737s to BOS?
About 12 years ago CO had 21 daily MD-80 flights from BOS to EWR alone, not including flights to CLE or IAH.

Commutair used to be based in Plattsburgh, New York; flying Beech 1900s in the Northeast. They flew BTV-BOS for sure, and maintained a focus operation at ALB. I think they did RUT-LEB-BOS as well, but don't quote me on that. I don't remember which other EAS routes they flew out of Logan. Before flying under the CO banner, they were US Airways Express.

They had a 757-200 scheduled EWR to BOS and back the morning of 9/11/01. Pops flew the plane into BOS from EWR, and was then stranded in BOS for several days. I believe that was the last scheduled 757 flight to BOS.

In 1986 I flew a CO A300 DEN-BOS, and returned on a DC-10-10. Was seated in First class in both directions, with a lunch meal going over to BOS and hot breakfast on the return. What surprised me tho, was the light loads in F and Y in both directions, for a flight in August. But then again, BOS in early august was muggy.

BOS sees Continental diversions very frequently. The wingletted 757s show up at least monthly and 767's drop in every 3 months or so. Occasionally, we even get the flagship 777 as evidenced by the video below.
