I read somewhere, maybe an older press report, that Continental is planning to shift the DC-10 to the CLE-London route as soon as they get enough 777s to cover whatever route that the shifter -10 is currently on. However, the 757 is perfectly capable of a CLE-London run, though that's about as far as I've ever seen an airline dare to take one.
