757-300 To Europe From USA

Sat Jul 16, 2005 8:25 pm

Does any airline fly from the USA to Europe using the 757-300? Iceland doesn't count. This I need to know.

I'm pretty sure I have seen ATA B753s in FRA. But I'd guess that they were military charters carrying troops (BTW, does anyone know whether they fly direct or with a stop?).

In scheduled service, no, but ATA has sent its 753s to Europe on military charters. Niether CO or NW use 753s on routes to Europe, of course, CO sends plenty of 752s from EWR and CLE to many cities in Europe.

What about Charter airline JMC/Thomas Cook, they may have, but not sure if they are ETOPS.

I know this doesn't count, but there is one service from Europe to Canada with the 757-300. Condor uses it once a week on its Hannover-Moncton-Toronto (HAJ-YQM-YYZ) route during the summer months (May-Oct).
Next flights: YQM-YOW-YOW / YQM-YYZ-CPH-YYZ-YQM / YQM-YUL-LYS-BRU-YUL-YQM / YQM-PUJ-YQM

-Sorry for being off topic-but I have heard that once LTU flew with an A321 to Calgary from DUS since the scheduled A330 was in repair.
Of course the A321 needed extra tank stops but I found that rather unusual, too.
It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

Axis Airways has taken some EX ATA aircraft but they are both -200 aircraft. We hear Axis may be looking to take 4-5 more 757 aircraft.

I always thought the 757-300 didn't have the range to make it across the pond? How far could it possibly make it into any of the continents? Probably cannot do a whole lot more than JFK - MAN with a somewhat filled a/c.

I've seen ATA 757-300's at SNN flying military charters.
There are no secrets in aviation.

753s have the range to cross the Atlantic, but not much more. On ATA military charters that have used the 753, a fuel stop is usually planned for SNN or BGR, so the aircraft is fueled either just before or just after its crossing.

I wonder if AA--with success on transatlantic runs using 757s--wishes they got a few 753s for the purpose? And why doesn't Northwest use 757-300s the way AA does...on long-and-thin routes like they used to serve (i.e. Boston-Glasgow). Even though NW has 757-300s they've chosen to only use DC-10s and A330s.

The 752 is better suited for transatlantic operations as it more range - just enough more range over the 753 so that it can serve a good number of destinations in Europe (such as cities in the UK, Ireland, France, Netherlands, Belgium, etc) from cities in the Northeast US such as NYC, BOS, etc. CO is adding winglets to the 752 to add a few hundred extra miles of range, and there are reports that AA has asked Boeing if it could develop some type of upgrade package to get the 752 to 4000 miles in range (AA has BOS/JFK/ORD-Europe and MIA-Brazil routes in mind). The transatlantic routes that could be flown with the 753 are very limited and could be subject to fuel stops on the westbound against the winds journey, especially during the northern winter.

NW has flirted with the idea of sending 752s accross the Atlantic but has never done it - they do use their 753s on West Coast-Hawaii routes which was a change in strategy - when the 753s were ordered, NW had said that the 753s would only fly US domestic mainland flights.....NW does wish that it had ordered additional 753s but, as you probably know, Boeing has closed the 757 production line.

Does Icelandair use the -300 across the pond?

Icelandair's 753 generally operates the Iceland-London or Copenhagen routes, I think, although it probably has been occasionally used to US cities such as Boston.

Icelandair uses a 752 to BWI. As a matter of fact I saw one on finals and it looks pretty BIG, thanks to their cool livery.

Hey,

Every Sunday, a Thomas Cook (Condor Livery) B757-300 departs EDI for YYZ. (Well, the last time i knew of it was March and April. Maybe it is just winter months.)

Thanks
Mike
