CO - B757 Config (South America)

Tue Feb 08, 2005 2:10 am

Does anyone know what confirguration of CO's B757s fly between EWR and LIMA? Is it the 16 biz/first seats, or just domestic first class/economy.

Thanks.

Yes the 757s are sold as the BusinessFirst equipped planes with only 16 seats. It can get switched in the event of equipment substitutions, but you should expect the premium configuration. It is a 7+ hour flight, and the flight down is a redeye, so service levels are comparable to the flights to Europe on CO.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Service levels are comparable to a domestic transcon flight in First Class, rather than BusinessFirst. The flight no longer is sold as BusinessFirst, which means you lose out on a number of amenities, but on the other hand, the flight is now eligible for EUA processing if you are a SkyTeam Elite.

CODC10, so you are saying that the planes though are still in the BusinessFirst configuration, but you get the domestic first class serivce? Does that just mean that you get a lesser quality meal, and a less extra amenities like on the 737s to South America? I have only been on a 73G and 738 to South America on CO, but heard that they have BusinessFirst 757s and double checked on their website.
