I just did YYZ-MIA and CO and a few questions that need to be answered.
First, how come I never- NEVER see a widebody on domestic routes? I've seen DC-10 on IAH-LAX on a few occasions, but never have I seen or been on 767 domestically. I know that CO is thrifty enough to send 757 to Europe, but wouldn't a transcon flight- say, EWR-LAX deserve a 767 service? Whenever I fly connect out of EWR to SFO, LAX or SJC, I'm always on 73X. Is it like Delta where CO is experiencing a widebody shortage or is it their strategic plan to use narrowbodies on as many routes as possible? This probably has been asked a few times but nothing came up on search, so any answers or links to previous discussions will be greatly appreciated.
Also, I'm missing a one bit of info on CO. I remember the days when CO was the THE worst airline in US only a few years ago, and AC stepped in to rescue them- at least financially. Whatever happend to that agreement and what were the terms of the termination on the agreement? And why was it terminated? I've somehow missed out on this subject and if anyone can fill in the gap, thanks in advance.
I'll probably post a trip report when I do MIA-YYZ and YYZ-LAX-YYZ later this month.
