If I am flying to DUB at the end of November on a 757...what is the likelyhood that I will fly on one of these?
|Quoting BHD (Reply 10):|
AVOD alone certainly makes the 752 a more attarctive option straight away for transatlantic.
|Quoting ThePalauan (Reply 12):|
And if they're removing most of the overhead monitors, will they have something similar to the 777s/767s where there'll be a single TV overhead of the aisle every few rows showing flight data?
|Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 8):|
50/50. looks like they are doing about 3 a month, so by Nov, there will be 10-13, or about 1/4 of the fleet. with two flights (there and back), it makes it 35-50% chance you'd be on one at least once.
|Quoting EWRCabincrew (Reply 16):|
Airshow will be available on each screen. No longer a need for overhead monitors with it being shown.
|Quoting Fllcontinental (Reply 19):|
Does this mean the new CO seats will be red or is the color there to make the seat seem more appealing?
|Quoting ScottishLaddie (Reply 22):|
Quoting COEI2007 (Reply 21):
With EI moving into BFS, CO might have some competition across the Atlantic coming soon!
CO are certainly operating very busy from BFS just now though, overbooked on a regular basis. If I remember rightly EWR-BFS tonight is overbooked by 12!
|Quoting 1337Delta764 (Reply 17):|
Panasonic iXPLOR program? Ever since Delta installed the Panasonic eFX system on their aircraft, Airshow has been replaced by iXPLOR. I think it would make more sense to use iXPLOR as it is included as part of the eFX system. Airshow can work with IFE systems from any manufacturer, but is an integrated part of Rockwell Collins' TES series systems. I don't think that Thales currently offers their own moving map program, so if an airline were to choose Thales IFE, then Airshow would be the only option for a moving map.
|Quoting EWRCabincrew (Reply 24):|
I used Airshow as a generic term (I know that Airshow is an actual product) like band-aid or kleenex. The current system is the iXPLOR and has route information through the eFX system. It will be what is used for the 757 upgrade as it is currently used for all 41 ships (all 757-200).

Quoting Eurohub (Reply 14):
Surely is one quarter of the fleet is likely to be upgraded by the end of November, 737DAB320's chances of getting one is 1 in 4 - neither 50/50 nor 35-50% chance! Wink
Ah but presumably he's coming back from DUB also - so he would have two shots at it - a 50% chance
|Quoting Max Q (Reply 31):|
As someone who spends a lot of time in both ends of a CO 75 I sincerely hope the new seats do not have that awful feature where the seat pan moves forward as the back reclines.Whoever the idiot was that invented this should be made to sit in it as their design sacriifices the little usable legroom left in coach as you recline.
|Quoting Cgnnrw (Reply 39):|
I flew CGN-EWR two weeks ago and returned this morning. It was my first trans-Atlantic in a single aisle and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The inflight service was fine. On the outbound the seats had adjustable headrests, the seats on the return flight didn't. I did notice the difference. If CO puts one of the upgraded planes on the CGN route, I just may choose them more often.
|Quoting WorldTraveler (Reply 40):|
can still remember flying 707s over the Atlantic. no AVOD but the seats were alot further apart.
|Quoting Dutchjet (Reply 41):|
The 757 is fine for transatlantic flights.....comfort is much more dependent upon individual space, service and IFE than the actual size of the airplane. CGN-EWR is a perfect example of a route that could not be flown with a larger airplane.....which was better, that nonstop CGN-EWR flight or having to fly or take the train to FRA and then fly to EWR (NYC)? Connecting in FRA would add hours to your journey.
(BY the way, you are a neighbor, I live only about 1 hour from Cologne.)
|Quoting NorthstarBoy (Reply 35):|
if they're 1/2 inch thinner, that would assumably mean 1/2 inch less padding, so 1/2 inch less comfort for those of us who like to fly but can't afford business class.
|Quoting Cory6188 (Reply 38):|
Guarantee they probably picked something boring like A or B...
|Quoting ADXMatt (Reply 45):|
The AVOD digital system is 400# lighter then the old system. One of many reasons you will see these on more a/c
