The CO future fleet will consist of:

733
735
73G
738
739
752
753
762
764
772
773

Is it final that CO is getting the 753 and 773? And when will they do away with the 733s and 735s?

The 733 is due to start leaving the fleet in 2003, and the 735 in 2005. I would not be surprised if CO orders the 736 though...

GE is supposedly known to be working on a GE90 engine for the 777-300 and the launch customer is rumored to be CO. The new engine will produce somewhere around 95-98K of thrust.
Hopefully CO will get the Stretch 777!  Smile

They have firm orders for 15 757-300s.

Why are they still using the 733? Too old. Alaska still uses the 732 though.

Do you mean the new 777-300LR?... The 777-300 has been in operation for a couple of years now mostly with Asian carriers. CAL so far has no orders for the 777-300, the smallest aircraft in CAL's fleet in a few years will be the 737NG. The largest will be the 777-200, unless they order the 777-300 which they haven't (yet).

No, GE is working on a engine for the 777-300 "non-ER" or "LR". The 777-300ER will only come with GE90s producing 115K of thrust, whereas the original -300, in operation since CX started using it in `98, today is only available with Pratt and Rolls engines. So GE is known to soon be offering a suitable engine for the standard, non-ER version of the 777-300.

CO ordering any 777-300s though, is only a rumour, but GE would like to fill in a gap in their productline... and be able to offer GE90s on all current and future 777s...

Continental still has MD-80's. Those are not that old and won't leave the fleet before the mid 2000's. But yes it is true that the MD-80's are as old as the oldest 737-300's. Now that the 727's, 737-200's and DC-9's are gone, the MD-80's and 737-300's will be next to go. The 737-500's are still very young, the oldest 500 is only 7.

American 767:

The MD-80 aircraft will start to die on the 2004.First in the United States, then in Europe, Asia, Latin America and so on. The MD-80 will be replaced with new 737 Next Generation and A320 family.
