Where Will CO Fly Their B 7E7s To?

Thu Dec 30, 2004 10:04 pm

Wonder where will they send their B 7E7s to....... Europe I guess? Also domestic routes?

Or will they open up new routes????

They can act as a replacement for their oldest B 767s though....

Although some might go to Europe I would put my money on Asia, especially the already mentioned ones to China.

Until Boeing pins down specific flight performance and operating characteristics data, it's futile to even think where they'll fly.

Does the 7E7 have the range to fly full pax/bins from IAH T-Pac?

What about IAH-far Europe or South America?

The company says these are incremental additions, but some fleet stratification would be useful.

I tend to think they will replace any 757s that are still crossing the pond. In 2009 the 767s will still be relatively new, but the 757 will be getting up there in age.

Any routes that the 777 is to big for but the 767-400 can't do in range terms

I hope they don't replace the 757's. That would be a sad day.  Sad

Eventually, when all the 767s are gone, then they will just take up the roots, that the 767s flew on.

I really hope the get the 7e7-9 aswell, to replace the 764 one day.

The delivery of the 7E7's begins in 2009, today nobody can say where these planes will fly to. The aviation industry is a fast moving business, things can change from day to day.

Is that TRUE about the 757's being older than the 762's????

I could be wrong, but a little voice inside me keeps whispering it just isn't so.

CO took delivery of their first 757 in 1994, and took their first delivery of a 767 in 2000. Still checking on how old the planes were.

all the 767's were brand new, hence they are younger than the 75's with the exception of the 753's (non ATA)!

Yes... NRT, HKG, PEK, SEL to the north and even SYD to the south are possible. Destinations further east (like SIN) are out of the 7E7-8's reach.

What about IAH-far Europe or South America

All of Europe and all of South America can be easily reached

The 7E7 is going to ASIA and maybe INDIA. Why waste a jet like that going to Europe when in 2009 the fleet they have will still be young and matched for the market. GB was in the jumpseat and said Shanghi should be approved for 2006, and don't forget moscow in 2006. So I guess they now plan on applying for route authorities to more places in ASIA. CO is the US leader in International flying!!! Can you imagine what our map will look like in 2009!?!?!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I see LAX-GUM
CLE-AMS?
PEK and Shanghai
Sydney?
Definitely EWR to Moscow, Munich, Vienna, Prague and Barcelona
EWR - Warsaw? Helsinki? Copenhagen? St. Petersburg?
EWR - Mumbai or Delhi
EWR - Cairo?

This certainly shores up CO's China bid. They are short on widebodies across the board, and this will help a great deal.

Hopefully they will do proving runs in FLL or MCO like they do with most aircraft they get. I remember flying the 777 when they first got it from MCO-EWR and they also used the 764 out of MCO sometimes and the 753 and 762's were both flown into FLL a lot at the beginning.

CO's 757s are not that old, and it would be a waste to retire them. The 767s are BRAND NEW. I suppose the 7E7s will just be flown in as a brand new bird.

A little off topic perhaps and bare with my ignorance, but will the 'E' be dropped for an '8' once production starts? I remember seeing old photos of the then announced 767s and 757s back in the late 70s and all contained letters (I believe 7Y7 and 7X7, please correct me if I am wrong) which of course were replaced with the now familiar 767 and 757.

I just find it a bit odd that no one is calling this the '787' as of yet.

That's BS. You don't order new planes without having your market(s) identified first.

The wind tunnel test model tail looks more like the traditional 777 style tail and with the traditional raked wingtips a la 773ER/764ER rather than the slightly curved up wingtips and shark fin tail.

That picture specifically was to test the nose and wingtips.

They said in some article that the tail hadn't even been worked on yet.

Back to the original question, I'll bet the 7E7 will fly the IAH-EWR route for repositioning, just like all the other fleet types do at some time.
