CO Question

Thu Oct 14, 2004 9:04 am

With all the new routes CO will be flying, I was wondering where will all the aircraft be coming from. Are these extra planes or will they be taking them from different routes.

We are taking delivery of a number of 737-800s this year and next, as well as having completed our 757-300 order recently. The loss of the additional 757s being configured to transatlantic standard (which by the way will continue to operate domestically on shorter routes ex-EWR) will be offset by the addition of these aircraft to the schedule, as well as additional tweaking from the bottom-up through continuing ERJ deliveries.

Most of the new routes (Belfast, Berlin, Bristol, Hamburg) will be operated by 757s, these are 757s currently in CO's fleet operating domestically.

CO will reconfigure them with their Business First Cabins and operate on Trans-Atlantic routes, the domestic routes from which these 757s are being withdrawn will be replaced with new 737-800s of which CO is still taking deliveries.

Does anyone know if CO is going to get a new paint job for their aircraft, it seems lots of airlines are getting new colours

No reason to. It's a crisp, winning livery. You don't change, simply for the sake of change. CO's logo and livery serve it well. It will be a while before CO messes with that.

I think any change in the CO livery would demise CO's livery. It's perfect the way it is IMO. It's crisp, clean, and looks professional. Not taky like some out there.
