757's To Europe-CO CLE To LGW & EWR To PRG?

Mon May 02, 2005 2:24 pm

I noticed that Continental flies a 757-200 from CLE to LGW, I did not realize that the 757-200 had a 3760 nm range. I also heard that Continental is going to fly the 757 from EWR to PRG pending the addition of winglets. Do winglets really improve the flight performance that much to fly a modified seating configuration on a 757-200 4100 miles?

Yes, the winglets are projected to help that much. PRG is only a rumor; for now expect them to be on OSL, ARN, TXL, HAM, and LIM.

CO has run the CLE-LGW route on a seasonal basis since 9/11, and year round before that since the late 90's....always with a 752

As a matter of fact, the service resumes again today, May 2. Departure time is 1930, and N19117 is scheduled to run it.
