You might have a more comfortable flight on the 737-900 and 757-200 than you would on the DL
767s. The domestic DL
767 fleet aren't particularly comfortable, IMO, even in First, and CO
will at least serve you something to eat more than likely.
isn't that tough a place to connect at if you're staying with mainline, although the walk from the North Concourse to Terminal E is pretty long. Odds are you'll have about a 5-6 minute walk to whichever gate you're leaving out of, with a maximum of 10 minutes like I said if you're transferring from the North side of Terminal C to the South. Shouldn't be much of a problem, Terminal E at IAH
is beautiful and has plenty of nice places to eat, shop, or hang out if you have an extended layover. The rest of CO
's facilities at IAH
are decent but certainly nothing to write home about.
is a little tougher because it's so big, but the design is pretty easy to navigate. Familiarize yourself with its concourses before you land so you have an idea of where exactly to go to the next gate. No matter what gate you arrive/depart out of, the efficient layout of the place will keep your transfer never to more than 15 minutes. It's a pretty boring airport, however, concessions are virtually the same amongst the midfield concourses, but the International Terminal E on the south side is infinitely nicer than T/A/B/C/D. I don't fly out of there often, the only domestic flights I've taken out of that building are 777s to CO
), USA - Florida">MCO
and some 767s to LAX
Go Continental if you concerned with comfort and food, go DL
if you like a widebody experience. As far as airports, it's a tossup, but if you are going to be using the lounges at either airport, I give CO
's collection of 5 Presidents Clubs at IAH
(emphasis on the Terminal E clubroom) the edge over DL
's 5 or 6 CRC's at ATL
. Come to think of it, I'd probably rather connect at IAH
anyway purely from a geographical standpoint, but that decision is yours. Hope I could help.
