Continental New Planes

Tue Jun 13, 2000 11:34 pm

Continental has 3 different flights to Brazil. 7Xweek EWR-GRU(São Paulo), 6xweek EWR-GIG (Rio) and 4xweek IAH-GRU, all operated by DC-10s
The Rio service is to be uptadated to daily 767-400 in August or September. I have no information about the Sao Paulo services though.
Does anyone knows when planes will be changed on the route, or if the IAH-GRU service is due to became a daily flight anytime in the future?

EWR-GIG goes 767-400 in August. GRU will probably see the 767-400
replace the DC10 from EWR. I would imagine the IAH frequencies will
increase to daily once new aircraft come on line that are cheaper to
operate, such as the 762 or 764.

EWR-GIG will have 764 service effective 1 October. IAH-GRU will have a 762 starting 1 February, but will remain 4 days a week.The EWR-GRU service will continue to be a DC-10 for some time.
