Makes sense, ever since the 762 and 764 arrived, CO
flies far fewer 757 on "business-first" routes (transatlantic and select latin american routes) and many of the international 757s simply fly domestic routes (I was on a 757B last week FLL
The 75B, with only 16 first class seats, cuts revenue potential and limits upgrade possibilities on domestic flights which is a problem for CO
. For example, on my flight last week, the 75B subbed for a standard 757, and 6 gold elite and 2 silver elite passengers were un-upgraded on the flight....they were obviously not happy. Luckily, I did sit up front and the BusinessFirst Seats are a treat, but are really not necessary for the shorter-haul flights.
Does anyone have an exact number of how many CO
757s are in domestic configuration and how many are in international configuration?
