CO has six 753's coming... 4 with ship numbers assigned already (990,995,997,999). don't know when theyr'e coming, but since ship 985 has already been delivered (to ATA), I imagine the first one must be almost done, so certainly in service by next march does not seem to be a typo.

(all info, of course, from Bill Harms' site)
Next flight.... who knows.

What routes are they going to be flying? I looked at CO's website and typed in all the city combinations I could think of, and I only found them from EWR-MCO and EWR-FLL (2 753 flights per day each direction on each of those routes). Anyone found some others?

I meant that there were six that seemed already to be on their way, according to the data I could find. If you know anything about the others, please share.

I wouldn't have any idea of routes that will be flown by the 753, but I know that flights to Florida from North Atlantic cities lend themselves well to being operated by 757s and now I guess 753s. Each time I have flown CO from EWR-FLL, it has been a 757, summer and winter. (I remember reading USAirways was to deploy A320/A321s on trans con. and 757s back on routes to FLL).

I'm going to get myself on that 753 flight then!
Bonjour Chef!

Do you know what kind of layout CO would use on its 753? I guess 24 seats in Biz, but what about Y/cl?

Thanx,

Boeing confirmed a previously announced intent-to-order from Continental Airlines for 15 Boeing 757-300 single-aisle airplanes. With this order, Continental joins a rapidly growing number of domestic and international airlines to operate the 757-300. The value of the new airplanes at list prices is estimated at $1.2 billion. First deliveries of the new airplanes are scheduled for late 2001 through mid-2003. "As we reduce our fleet to just three types of aircraft, this new 757 model will help us efficiently serve a set of routes that demand additional capacity," said Gordon Bethune, Continental chairman and chief executive officer. The 757-300 has the lowest seat-mile costs of any single-aisle jetliner on the market, making it an extremely cost-effective airplane for airlines to operate. It incorporates elements of the popular, award-winning interior of the Boeing 777.

As the newest member of the 757 family, the 757-300 has no direct competitor on the market. "We believe the future for the 757-300 is very bright and that as other major U.S. carriers see how well this airplane works for Continental, they too will want to add the 757-300 to their fleets," said Seddik Belyamani, executive vice president for Sales and Marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes Group. "The operating efficiencies, simplicity of introduction and passenger preference for the 757-300 are too compelling to ignore. The 757-300 is the ideal airplane in a demanding market place."

These new 757-300s will complement Continental's current fleet of 41 757-200s. The airline will use its new 757-300s on a variety of domestic routes requiring additional capacity. The 757-300 enjoyed a reliability rate of 99.64 percent during its first year of operation with launch customer Condor Flugdienst - the highest rate ever by any commercial airplane model in its first year of operation. Condor took delivery of the first 757-300 in March 1999. The 757-300s for Continental will be powered by Rolls-Royce RB211-535E4B engines.

In addition to Continental and Condor Flugdienst, American Trans Air, Arkia Israeli Airlines, Icelandair and JMC Airlines also have ordered the 757-300, totaling 44 airplanes. Fifteen 757-300s are currently operating in revenue service. The 757-300 is 23 feet 4 inches (7.1 meters) longer and can carry 20 percent more passengers than the 757-200. It can fly up to 3,467 nautical miles (6,420 kilometers). The Boeing 757 is consistently rated the most passenger-preferred single-aisle airplane.

Someone posted a list not so long ago with the most traveled routes for airlines. FLL-EWR is CO's second most traveled route, after EWR-IAH, I believe.

I was just wondring if its allowed to turn on and off the rwy lights on smaller fields at night?
What if a plane is approching a field and you just turn off his approach lights? Maybe this is a stupid question since i imagine that doing what i asked for in the last question is impossible.

BTW: Cx-flyboy: You fly the 744F don't you?

It seems that airlines always fly new planes into the Florida market. Just look at CO last year with their new 762 and 764 jets. They flew them into MCO and FLL and I think evan PBI from EWR and IAH. Delta did the same with their new 767's and 777 into FLL and MCO and PBI. FLorida is just a hot market to test new planes and train crew, I guess because of the loads and length of flight is not too long. I imagine the new 757's will be deployed on the EWR-IAH route and into places like SFO, LAX and possibly a few out of CLE.
