Recently while at EWR during a minor snowstorm, we were delayed for about an hour while our 762 was de-iced with the trucks and fluid. This got me wondering...does CO still use their one-of-a-kind triangular de-icing structure at EWR? If so, why didn't we use it?
Does anyone know anything about it? Does CO use it often? If so, how well does it work? And if it does work well, why haven't they put it at CLE (I wouldn't think IAH has many snow problems ).
I know it's a lot of questions, but I have never really heard much about it before.

When I last went through EWR.........this same time last year, I went through the 'de-ice tent' in a CO 737-500. It was pretty neat, we taxied in......sat for a few minutes with the IR lights and blowers on us, we're then sprayed down with 2 type of deicing fluid (one pink, one green) and then quickly taxied for take off.
