Continental Specific Reg. Request Aircraft

Fri Sep 02, 2005 6:29 am

For those CO dispatchers or people in 'the know'--I'm flying CO 267 IAH-SEA on Sun 9/4 and back on CO 166 on 9/7, I was wondering if the outbound 738 would be a wingletted bird? I doubt the return 757 would have winglets as I'd assume they would only visit IAH on eastbound routes. Any info is appreciated--just curious.

While someone may be able to give you a guess on what ship number you'll have, that is very much subject to change, especially by the 7th. I would wait to ask this question until the day before your flight on the 4th, but even then you're not guaranteed to see that tail number when you show up at the airport. Tech delays and equipment swaps make for some interesting changes right down to the final minutes.

CO is pretty good with keeping their schedule of what ship number will fly what segment barring any unforseen wx, maint, or delay issue, so you might get lucky finding out soon. You also may find that 752 with winglets as they do get to EWR often......I was there a few weeks back and saw 2 or 3 on the ground at the same time. Enjoy

CO 267 IAH-SEA (9/4) is now expected to be ship #264, so yes, you'll have a wingletted -800. That is subject to change, however.
