Continental UK Routes

Sun Nov 19, 2000 5:45 am

I have heard a number of rumours that CO are planning to introduce more services to UK regional airports with the B757 and B767 startin sometime next year.
Does anyone have any info on this and which airports it is likely to be?

What is LCY? are you sure that they would use the ERJ's??? I thought they would atleast use their 757's if not 767's.

They're staring London Stansted with 752's and said to be replacing the DC10's on the EWR-LGW flights with 764's.

I'll give anyone odds of 1:1,000,000 on LCY for anyone interested!

I just thought i'd tell you that there is absolutley NO WAY WHAT SO EVER that any long-haul flights are going to be flown into LCY...the largest jets that London City can handle are BAe 146s!

I think Vlad was having a bit of fun with y'all!  

Anyway Englandair, just FYI the ERJ-135ER is SMALLER than the BAe146.

ERJ-135ER?

I thought the EWR-YHZ-KEF-SNN-LCY service was to be run by ERJ-140LR's!

Gonna have to give 'ol Gordon a call...what time is it in Houston?!

CO are starting a STN-EWR service with 757s next year. I would think that if any others are added then they ill be NCL,EDI,CWL or LBA.
