so you think CO could get some B744a and increase their pacific network?
Where would they fly? CO just started flying to Tokyo from EWR and IAH with B777s. And what else do they have? B744s from GUM? They should first try to fill their B757s from there. B744s for just two routes, EWR and IAH to NRT? What a nice idea. Buy two or three B747 planes for just two routes is utopic. No airline manager would do that. In today's air taffic many airlines try to increase their frequencies. So if traffic goes up toTokyo they will fly two B777s daily from their hubs. And B744s for new routes such as Osaka, Nagoya or Seoul? Utopic. First B777s should be filled.
CO recently announced that they plan to operate as less types as possible in the near future: B777s, B767(-200)s, B757 and B737s. No more, and especially no B747!
