CO And Their 2007 Announcements.

Thu Oct 12, 2006 9:40 am

By this time in the past two years they had announced one or two destinations already. DL and NW seem to have announced or are ready to announce their respective plans for the summer of 2007.

Does anyone know when CO is planning to announce their route expansion (if any) for 2007? Also, any ideas as to which cities as well?

I don't think anything very exciting happen unless the China rights are not granted to CO.

So far all that has been officially anounced is CLE-CDG (Which will be in 2008 for some reason) and EWR-PVG (Only if rights are granted)

Continental is campaigning very heavily for that route. What are the odds they will get it?

They have 41 757s equipped with Winglets and Business First Interiors, so they can launch plenty more Trans-Atlantic 757 routes. They have plenty of 737-800s and 737-900ERs on order and an existing fleet of 737-900s and 757-300s to take over domestic flying for the 757-200s.

So could we see any of the following:

EWR-LYS
EWR-MUC
EWR-LUX
EWR-ORK (seasonal)
EWR-AGP (seasonal)
EWR-SVQ (seasonal)
EWR-FAO (seasonal)

CO's only "seasonal" Trans-Atlantic route is CLE-LGW, CO does not operate routes that cannot be sustained year round.

If I were to make a 757 list it would be this;

Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Nice, Bordeaux, Nantes, Stuttgart, Munich, Prague, Helsinki, Newcastle, Basel.

Ahh... First time posting here. I've waited so long to contribute.  cloudnine 

Anyways. I kinda wish Continental would have more service additions out here in the Pacific. It'd have been interesting if they could apply for service to China from Guam even though frequency might not be daily and the aircraft might be no larger than the 738s out here. I seriously wish Continental could at least return to Noumea. If not, maybe return back to Seoul? I figure if Korean Air can operate an early morning 773/744 from here on a daily basis, the Micronesian division should be able to hold with at least a 738 on five frequencies each week.

Oh well... The military is going to start a build-up here so it's probably inevitable that we'll see some extra flights to support the influx. Maybe they'll consider keeping some of their 762s for the additional service here?  crossfingers

They do use their B752 for Oslo, but have to limit the load however. I am not crazy about being in a narrow body for that long. I did once their BRS route, and was not happy. The FAs were not excited either....

Anybody have had similar experience?

Hi!

I flew CO last July from LIS to BOG via EWR, I flew 752's from LIS to EWR and back, and 737-700 from EWR to BOG. Seriously I CANNOT say that it was bad, it was not the best but it was not the worst!!! My flights from LIS and to LIS were quite OK, but there's something that I cannot help, that's my cultural background.....no wine with my meals was just a big frustration!!! I fully understand that US airlines have a policy regarding that but...please it should be really nice the way they could bond with other cultures...regarding Portugal we grew up with wine, we appreciate wine, we love wine, etc. etc..... I'm sure that CO could increase their "income" if they would understand portuguese culture...I'm positively sure that if CO would go to ANY portuguese wineries and ask for a special deal regarding portuguese wines in their flights from LIS to EWR these wineries will give ANYTHING to suport that!!!! This is pure marketing!!!
But beside that I had a great time flying CO! BUT....I still hope they upgrade ONE DAY from the 752 to a wide body airplane...762 or the 787!!!
Regards and I wish the best for CO!

The 757 allows CO to offer nonstop service to Cities that would otherwise not get nonstop service from the US, such as Oslo, Bristol, Cologne etc..

BTW..

Im flying EWR-BCN in two-three weeks on a CO 757, I'll post a trip report.

There has also been talk of adding a 3rd EWR-CDG flight.
I won't believe any of it though until I see it on the departures board at EWR!

There was a post on a.net about this a while back, but I couln't find it, so I'll have to go by memory, which is essentially that one frame will be used to upgrade EWR BRU to 777 service and the other for a similar upgrade on an Italian route. So the question becomes, what of the 767s used on those routes ? Will they be used to upgrade existing 757 services or launch new flights ?

Likely that the 764's that currently service those routes will upgrade some current 762 flights, and then the 762s will be used to launch newer routes that the 752 doesn't have the legs for. One that is being discussed is EWR-BSL because of the very heavy pharma industries in both locations. Also there is the continued rumor of Moscow service that might see the light of day with a freed up 762.

Oh that was hysterical! I wonder how many people actually got that. I love Turkey by the way!

I have heard EZE and GRU need equipment upgrdades.

Back to the topic.....

I am sure we'll see EWR-HEL. That should be a no brainer.

I think EWR-AGP might be coming too. Yes the route would be perfect for the summer, but there is enough population in southern Spain to support the route year round I bet. Not daily though of course. Probably 4X a week.

I bet CO will look at another route to Germany either MUC or STR. But I've heard EWR-CGN is a lackluster performer.

They might look at bringing flights to France, bypassing CDG, but I don't know enough.

What about Newcastle? Will they finally get the flight they want after AA bailed on them?

One thing I think we can all agree, CO will use their strengths in using the 757 to Western European micromarkets.

The problem with that is that both the EZE and GRU flights have very long layovers for the airframe...a lot of sitting time for a widebody. I don't think CO minds so much with the 762...they're the least efficient widebody in their fleet, so sitting on the ground isn't so much of a "loss" as long as it flies back full. The 764 sitting on the ground for all that time would be a bigger negative, I think. I don't think either flight will get an upgrade until traffic justifies twice-dailies so they can do quicker turnarounds.

they could easily fill up a 757 on the route

Why is the layover at GRU so long ? My cousin was wondering about that with me once since he flies that route about every 4 months. A late evening arrival at EWR would give him some good sleep before he has to go back to work the next day. Now, he usually drives to work straight from the airport. I wasn't sure about the answer but told him that it could be that there are more connections early in the morning for connecting passengers. A late evening arrival would mean a hotel stay for most connecting passengers.

I saw that, I think the reason why BCN is getting the 767-400 that day is the same reason we are going to BCN. Cruise.

We are going on our honeymoon, leaving October 31st. I have enough Onepass miles but they told me there were no upgrades available (either direction).  crying 

I would have paid for the Business First Tickets, however at $10,000 round trip for the both of us it was way out of our budget. I've been saving my Onepass miles for years waiting to use them on our honeymoon, I really wish I could have got us a Business First seat on the EWR-BCN leg.

We are flying EWR-BCN on October 31st, catching our cruise on November 4th, and returning from Barcelona on November 11th.

We don't agree on much, man, but we're 100% in agreement on that. The message to the city was simple: upgrade customs, and you get that flight in '08.

After all, that's 18 months from now. CO can always retract that flight from the schedule, can't it?  Smile

Quoting STT757 (Reply 7):
Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Nice, Bordeaux, Nantes, Stuttgart, Munich, Prague, Helsinki, Newcastle, Basel.

Munich, Prague and Nice or Lyon would be 3 good bets, but all are on the fringe of the 752 range.

Quoting IAHFLYR (Reply 22):
I don't think all of the 200's have the wingles installed yet, saw a couple last week that didn't

The one I flew on yesterday didn't. One of the oldest they have, with the older coach seats and tray tables, old smaller LCD overheads, etc. I hope when they update this one, it gets AVOD all around with new seats. I assume that's the plan. AVOD goes into the planes with the oldest seats first, since those seats need to be replaced anyway...

Na, I was commenting in a not-so-subtle manner at the lack of references to IAH in these type of threads.

Y'know, I like to think I would have figured that out, except that because AA has their operation at RDU with limited international service, it somehow brought a reference to GSO into the realm of possibility.

Anyway, whoops Big grin

FYI, the lyrics go: "It's Istanbul NOT Constantinople, now it's Istanbul NOT Constantinople..."

Actually this song goes back to the 20s, and in 1953 it was a hit by the 'Four Lads'.

Word on the street is that CO's 2007 expansion out of EWR is going to have a sprinkle of new France destinations.

We do have 41 752's.

However they are not all equipped with winglets yet.
I flew one the other day without.

Quoting Falcon84 (Reply 35):

We don't agree on much, man, but we're 100% in agreement on that. The message to the city was simple: upgrade customs, and you get that flight in '08.

After all, that's 18 months from now. CO can always retract that flight from the schedule, can't it?

ahh... forgot about that one. But would 18 months be enough time?
Well I believe it all is coming to an end. Oh well, I guess we are gonna pretend.

Quoting Avianca (Reply 24):
what about flights to nue ?

In other German forums the opinion is that NUE would fill a 757 to EWR or ATL- problem is that EWR-NUE is about max.range for a 757 while ATL-NUE would be out of reach.A 767 would be too big.Ther"s a lot of export-oriented high-tech companies in the NUE area (Siemens,Alcatel,Ericsson..) plus army bases and facilities in Bavaria.
