For the summer season I would expect the same as in years past... namely 752 nonstops from EWR and IAH. If the demand is high enough, you could see a 753 flying up that way now and then as well. 764's? Sorry, but I must think not.

When the route was launched last year, it operated with a 757 which has the range for the 8 hour + flight from Newark. The flight operates in summer season only as a nonstop from EWR to ANC and from IAH to ANC, both are 757's. In the off peak season, Continental had been flying the EWR route as EWR-PDX-ANC with a 737-800.
The 767-400's are operating Hawaii routes and the few that will be delivered this year are going into service to Ireland and Frankfurt from Newark.

I don't understand why CO doesn't fly seasonal service from ANC into CLE? I know EWR and IAH are larger markets but I would think by flying into CLE you could get alot of connecting traffic from the midwest during the high tourist season up there.

Correction: Continental will be flying 767-400s this summer to Madrid, Rome, and the second-daily Paris flight in addition to the ones mentioned. Also, Shannon will be a 757 while DUB will still be a 764 as planned. However, Continental will be flying double-daily 777s into Gatwick from Newark, so there's a boost of about 280-seat weekly increase in that market.

If CO is ever going to do CLE-ANC seasonal (and CLE-HNL maybe on saturdays would be nice, too), it's probably at least a year away. A few thing have to happen first. 1. The dual runway project needs to start up, which is slated for December of this year or January 2003; 3. CO needs to add feeder traffic in CLE, which won't happen in any significance until the dual runways are up; 3. CO needs the city to lower the landing fees so that CO would fly the route with even a 752.
If that happens, you might someday see a seasonal nonstop CLE-ANC.
