Where is CO's principal maintenance base for the T7's
|Quoting Drerx7 (Reply 9):|
Well more 777s run out of EWR. Here at IAH we have em to EZE (certain frequencies), CDG, and LGW. Occasionally the 777 will run a swap to EWR or as a continuation to/from EZE when its on that run (EWR-IAH-EZE-IAH-EWR). I personally have flown them IAH-LAX-IAH and IAH-EWR-IAH. Remember they also flew IAH-HNL as CO1/2 for the longest time (I think the aircraft switched down to 764 @ HNL for the continuation to GUM--not sure if the 777 continued all the way there-don't think so though).
|Quoting Impacto (Thread starter):|
I am aware of the fact that AA, UAL, and DL use their 777s on domestic routes especially to KLAX from their respective hubs. What about Continental? If not, why?
|Quoting Centrair (Reply 16):|
So the majority of CO's T7s are rotated through international destinations like NW does with their 747s and A330s?
|Quoting Phoenixflyer (Reply 6):|
on the EWR to IAH route in mid August. Usually that route is 738.
|Quoting C0ex (Reply 14):|
Looks like it isnt flying to the IAH-EWR leg anytime soon. There is currently 762, 752, and mix of 737's flying that route now.
|Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 18):|
No, it's an every plane but 777 route, usually. They fly 757s and 762s on the route as well as 737s, and sometimes ERJs!!
|Quoting NWA757boy (Reply 19):|
I've NEVER seen the ERJ between IAH-EWR. I thought there was a clause somewhere in the CAL ALPA that states only CAL planes and pilots can fly between hubs.

|Quoting Drerx7 (Reply 17):|
All of them are flying internationally. IF you see a domestic 777 it'll be on the IAH-EWR run.
|Quoting Centrair (Reply 22):|
Could say CO fly EWR-Foreign Airport-IAH-Foreign Airport-EWR to rotate their T7s?
|Quoting EWRCabincrew (Reply 21):|
They don't go non-stop, but they do go EWR-IAH through secondary cities like RIC, IND, STL and the like.
|Quoting EWRCabincrew (Reply 23):|
EWR-CDG-IAH or IAH-NRT-EWR and so on.
|Quoting Airplanenut (Reply 28):|
If I recall correctly, quite a while back, the Tokyo run was actually BOS-EWR-NRT-EWR-BOS, which let you take a 777 on a <200 mile flight.
|Quoting MEACEDAR (Reply 29):|
I flew EWR-IAH on a CO 777. This was about 6-7 months back.
|Quoting Tercer (Reply 13):|
will loose money since the airplane is designed to fly for more than 15 hours.
|Quoting Drerx7 (Reply 30):|
The 777 wasn't used on EWR-BOS but the flight number may have continued on to NRT.
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 32):|
Um, the 772ER's average flight length is significantly shorter than 15 hours and it makes money on plenty of shorter routes.
|Quoting Tercer (Reply 37):|
Um, ok so how about you back that statement up with some data showing that airlines utilizing the 777 on domestic flights turn a profit on the on those routes.
