According to Boeing's website, CO ordered 10 767-200ERs on Nov 23, 1998. They are slated to have CF6-80 engines.

Based on what I could find, these have not been delivered yet.

Continental has ordered 26 767-400ERs for delivery from July 2000 on. Also, they have 10 767-200ERs on order with the first delivery in October. The interesting thing about these -200ERs is that they will have the same intertior and the same cockpit as the -400ERs!! That's right, a new cockpit for the old -200s.

CO has a total of 10 B767-200 on order.
We have a total of 16 -400 on order.
We have one firm option.
And we have 6 Decision dates on options.
And for the person above sorry that you are wrong. We will have a standard B767 cockpit on the -200. The -400 will have the B77 intertior, and cockpit.

I can see the logic in what CALPilot is saying:

If the cockpit of the -200 is a standard 767 cockpit, then the 757 pilot base can be used for these ships. CO can also have 757s and 767-200s on the same routes, and interchange between the aircraft depending on the # of passengers on the flights.

Same thing with the 777s and 767-400s, I imagine. The 777 pilots can fly the 767-400s, and aircraft can be interchanged depending on # of passengers.

The existing 757 and 767 pilots will be able to fly the 767-400ER as a common type, I would assume the 767-400ER has a "gauges under glass" concept in the cockpit like SWA's 737-700s, where the 777ish displays are programed to read more like the older style instrument panels in the existing 757/767s.

Common Features Offer Competitive Advantage
The 767-400ER brings all the competitive advantages of airplane family commonality to an operator's fleet. This derivative shares common features with the rest of the 757/767 family of airplanes, including a common pilot type rating between all 757s and 767s. This allows any pilot trained to fly one model to be qualified to fly the other model with minimal additional instruction. Compatibility with the 757/767 family means that operators can gain better access to the demanding, medium-size market (200 to 300 seats) by matching the appropriate airplane to variable requirements. They can also improve operating efficiency through lower training requirements, greater flexibility in assigning flight crews and reduced spares inventories.

@t CO we will crew both the -200, and the -400 from the same sub-base of pilots. Even though our -400 will have the PFD instrumentation, we will be required to do differences training on the new generation cockpit. The B777 pilot will NOT be flying the B767-400. My type rating is good in the-400. The round gauges on a flat panel are avaiable for Altitude,and Vertical speed; however, I have been told to expect tape insturments on our -400's.

CalPilot:

Are there any 'technical' reasons that pilots could not be cross-rated between the 767-400 and the 777? Obviously the gross weights and engines are different, but would that prevent a cross-rating?

Or is CO simply reserving the 777 for only it's most senior pilots?

Yes, the-400 is much more B767, than triple 7 in systems. When we talk about the cockpits being simular, thats not enough to work the type ratings. The FAA and Boeing want it this way from what I have heard.

CALPilot,
Sorry about the mix-up before. You are of course right, only the interiors will be new, not the cockpit. But are you sure on the number of -400s? The original order called for 30, then 4 were cancelled. The last I heard, that was it, and the Boeing website still has 26 on order.

Thanks for the aircraft information. I shall check out the website suggested above and also keep an eye on the skies, looking for the new bird in Continental's fleet.
