Viewing these two picutres (ship N33103) had me wondering what a Continental B752 was doing in Europe.

What US carriers have scheduled trans-atlantic or trans-pacific service using B757's (or, for that matter, any other smaller aircraft)?
Change is: one airline, six continents!

CO does a bunch of thinner routes with 752's. There are a few transatlantic routes out of CLE that are done that way, as well as some out of EWR that are kind of thin as well. Icelandair also does many runs between Iceland and cities in the US, as well as flights to mainland Europe.

The flew with the B757 to Brussels about a year ago.

Now we are getting the B762 here.

CO is not the only carrier, also Air Transat flies B757's transcontinental.

As I stated in the original question, "What US carriers have scheduled trans-atlantic or trans-pacific service using B757's (or, for that matter, any other smaller aircraft)?"

We've established Continental. Any others, or smaller aircraft?

No, I don't believe that NWA use B757's on transatlantic routes. CO also use their 757's to AMS sometimes. None US airlines (Air Transat, former- C3000 and Royal) flew the 757 Canada-Europe.

TWA did JFK-LIS and JFK-BCN a few years ago. Icelandair operated 737-400 to Halifax.

ATA did run a military charter on a scheduled operation from Atlanta to Philadelphia to Mendenhall and back using a 757-200 about 3-4 times a week in the mid 90's. I don't know if they still do or not.

AA back in summer 1994 did JFK-MAN with 757s. A North American 757 has also been in MAN.

When CO first began EWR-MAN, it was a 757 service (think that was 94 as well).

ATA ran a 757 from Bosnia-Germany-USA as a military charter. I spent some time in Germany six years ago and saw one of their 757 parked on the ramp at Ramstien.

Continental flew from Newark to Dublin, Ireland in a Boeing 757-200. Do they still have that service?

HERE ARE THE CURRENT CO 752 TRANS ATLANTIC ROUTES:

CO B757-224ER

Newark-Lisbon
Newark-Birmingham
Cleveland-London/Gatwick

AA SJC/LAX-HNL/OGG

UA LAX/SFO-OGG

ATA MDW-HNL

CO is unpredictible. They swap 757s out of numerous cities and replace them with 767s and 777s. I have seen CO 757s at the following cities:

LGW
MAN
BHX
BRU
Glasgow
Dublin
AMS
Lisbon
Dublin

There have been rumors that Delta might use 757's from Boston to Europe.... but I guess this depends on whether Delta is going to try Boston-Europe flights again.

Condor flies the 757 to Florida,and then remember the Birgenair 757 that crashed into the Atlantic minutes after its take-off from the Dominikan Republic to a German airport.
I think AIR2000 and Canada3000 used to operate the 757 on Transatlantic.
Next flight TUN-YUL Tunisair A330-243.

Ok, so this one's charter, but I belive that North American takes it's 757's across the pond... I don't know about their 737-800's though.

Ship #N33103 regularly runs CLE-LGW.

Correction, Acidradio: There is only one trans-Atlantic flight from CLE, and that's CLE-LGW. The return flight could be construed as a second inbound trans-Atlantic (I count the two as a single circuit.)

Now they fly the B762 and from time to time the B764 to Brussels:

I had a fast look through the B757 pictures of NW, but didn't find a picture of one outside Europe. So I don't think that they use their 757's transcontinental.

Frederic

if Delta do make BOS into a HUB, what transatlantic destinations are likely? i'd heard a while back about Manchester being a possibility??

also, does NW have any 752ERs? if so, could they fly DTW-Europe such as Manchester/Dublin/Shannon/Brussels?? I have always wondered why NW hasn't started flights from MAN to DTW??

Miama Air Boeing 737-800s stop off at Shannon, Ireland. Do they arrive in Shannon direct from the U. S. or do they stop in Newfoundland for fuel and if going west from Shannon is it again a stop in the Gander/St Johns area or a flight direct to north eastern U. S. A. to somewhere like Bangor, Maine? Also, can some kind person tell me where OGG is? It is driving me mad not knowing. The place was mentioned about ten days ago on the thread about short runways. Greetings from my hometown, Cork, Ireland. Our longest flights are to Cyprus which takes just under 5 hours on A320s. There have been in the past some El Al charters with 757s to Tel Aviv. The El Al 757s in the old colour scheme are magnificent!

I think CO is the only one using their 757s across the Atlantic from the US. Northwest uses DC-10s, and 747s across the atlantic.

I have never seen NW 757's in europe, so i guess CO is the only US major currently operating 757's into europe.

NW's 752's are not ER versions i think, if they are though, they should be able to make it from DTW. But i don't know if NW has any ER's.

Mexicana flies the 757-200 from Cancun to Buenos Aires. Thats almost as long as a trans atlantic flight.

Isn`t there a stop at BOG or in an other South American capital on that flight?

@ TS-IOR: Condor has never flown with a 757 to Florida, always with the 763, maybe except some special flights.

You are correct with the Birgenair crash, it was a 752 but not a nonstop flight. There was a scheduled stop somewhere in Canada (I guess YQX). The 752 was also a replacement for a 767 (I don`t know if -200 or -300) from the airline "Alas Nacionales".

Has anyone flown one of these CO 757s across the Atlantic? I hope they're a little more spacious in coach, compared to the NW's 757s. I know for me, a 3 hour flight from Seattle to Minneapolis is even WAAAY to much for me to handle in the back of one of those stinkin' cattle cars. Just wait for the 757-300s, I can't even imagine...  Insane

B752ER Range

Sat Jun 15, 2002 9:22 am

What is the range of a B752ER compared to regular B752's, or other aircraft that commonly do CO's trans-atlantic runs?

Skyservice, a Canadian charter company has Airbus 319's doing the St. John's (YYT) - London Gatwick (LGW) route for the summer! I think that has to be the smallest aircraft on a transatlantic commercial (passenger) flight at the moment. I know years back Royal Airlines had a 727 doing YYT to SNN. It only lasted one summer though. If you spend a night in Bangor Maine at the airport Four Points hotel you will see LOTS of european 757's stopping...or you used to anyway. Like Airtours, Air 2000, Finnair, Brittania etc.
