Date: November 24, 2001
Aircraft: Boeing 777-200
Route: Houston/Intercontinental to Newark International
Duration: Two hours and forty minutes
After flying on an uneventful 737-300 flight from New Orleans to IAH, I boarded a 777, flight 50, to Newark. This was my first time on a CO 777, and I was very impressed. I had seat 35A on the big bird, giving me a great view of the sprawling wingspan. We pushed back on time and were airborne shortly therafter, with a nearly full flight, at least 95%. Takeoff was amazing, albeit a bit bumpy. After takeoff, the PTV entertainment started, and I was satisfied with the selection. I played some video games and watched "Evolution", a pretty good movie. Lunch consisted of a cheeseburger, bag of chips, a smores bar, and some carrots....not too shabby! Certainly much better then the small sandwhich which I got on the 737-300 from EWR to MSY a week before. We landed about 35 minutes early in Newark, where I transferred to an ERJ to PVD. Overall I was impressed by Continental, and I just love the 777!

Seems like you had a very pleasant trip with the boeing 777. I also love this airplane. It's my favourite one. Glad to hear that Continental is still serving meals on domnestic flights, compare to Delta which offers meals only after a flight duration of at least 3 hours, which is very bad for an airline like delta. Next spring I will fly with Continental from Zürich to Florida.

I am glad that you liked our aircraft! I am a Continental flight attendant, and I love when I am on the 777. This aircraft is so incredible. I can hardly notice when we are moving. Usually, I am working a position in economy, which has my jumpseat position over door 3 (one of 4 jumpseats), and I cannot believe how smooth this aircraft lands! Before, I was always a DC-10 fan, but the 777 has won my heart.

Let me know when you'll be in Cleveland... On the other hand, I guess I can't meet you out at the concourse anymore, so scratch that. But have a good flight and enjoy our newest concourse, Concourse D.
