He's giving his opinion based historical precedents, and on all the information available to him as a CO employee. I'd say he's probably right, so while we all know that there's no way to give an "iron-clad, 100% with absolute certainty" guarantee
that it will never happen, odds are that CO will never run scheduled DEN-IAH service using 764s.
So let's not split hairs, ok?
