flight usually operates with a 764 in the 35+200 configuration, so it may be possible that the new Nagoya flight will operate in rotation with the EWR
flight....something for the scheduling people to figure out.
is streching their wide-body capacity, but there is certainly extra capacity available during the low winter season on the north atlantic.......however, I would not expect the 764 domestic operations to return this winter - CO
sometimes flew a 764 on the MCO
route - that route, for example, will likely now be served with a 753. I do disagree with Ishky15 on one point, however (sorry), the EWR
-SantoDomingo route is likely to keep its 764 or 777 as CO
hauls lots of pax AND
freight on that route and needs the widebody there. As for next summer, its a long ways off, and depending on what new routes CO
does decide to open, the schedules will be tweaked. CO
has more or less stated that most new European destinations will be served with the 752 (with or without winglets), and if the long awaited IAH
- F R A or IAH
flights are introduced, there is a 762 doing LAX
this summer that could be swapped, along with the rumors about using 757s year round on the Irish routes (3 flights during the summer). Also, dont forget that CO
still has an outstanding paid-for option on another 777, and the Lagos service, while long discussed, is far from a sure thing.
