Continental- What To Expect?

Sun Jul 29, 2007 1:55 pm

I am flying from MDW-EWR-DUB on Continental and I am wondering what to expect on the EWR-DUB segment seeing as it is on a 757-200. I am flying economy and I am 6'2" so I was wondering about seat comfort and IFE on this long of a flight in a 757. Also, I am flying from ATH-EWR on a 767-200 and was curious about the same seeing as this is a much longer flight. Any info would be great! Thanks!

I asume you already have checked out seatguru.com ?
Select airline and type of equipment, then click onto AUDIO and VIDEO symbols for more detailed information.

You'll have a PTV on that one.

Yes I did take a look at that. I guess I was wondering more about seat comfort seeing as seatguru.com just tells you pitch and width. How are the seats compared to UAs? or WN? or AA?

From my experience, being about 6'1" myself, I have had not too many problems with comfort or leg room.
But then, again, I am not picky and happy to be on an airplane to begin with. Big grin

Hi!

I can only give you my experience on the 757 flight. I flew LIS/EWR/LIS on July 2006 and I was a bit concerned about flying a single aisle airplane on a transatlantic flight, but I had a great ride both ways. CO service was nice, good food, good IFE, they have those small screens that come down, so you can always find a good one for you, the crew was kind and helpful and I'm also tall as you and I did managed quite well "my space". Just a small advice, be aware that you'll probably "spend" sometime inside the plane, taxiing slowly until you leave EWR. I waited around 1 hour from push-back until we actually took off...EWR can be quite buzzy in certain times. I never flew CO 762's but I know they were the last 200ER version to be built, so they're quite new, they have IFE in each seat and as far as I remember from other 767 flights I did, the configuration 2-3-2 is very, very confortable, I one flew a BA 763 from JFK to LGW and it was one of the best flights in my life, so I think in your ATH/EWR although it can be quite a long flight ( 10/11 hours? You'll find the 762 an excelent airplane for that flight. Have a great trip and don't forget to post a trip report!!!
