CO Transatlantic 757 To DUB

Tue Mar 11, 2008 4:03 am

Later this week I will be flying to Ireland on CO on a 757. This will also be my first time flying Continental. I was wondering if anyone could give me some information on what to expect? I have mostly heard only positive things about Continental so I am pretty excited about the flight over and back...even though both are on a 757. I know this topic doesn't sound to specific but if anybody has any information to share about the Continental 757 transatlantic experience that would be great!

I'll likely be flying CO transatlantic on a 757 to DUB as well, although I won't be going until Jul. 25. Yes, it will obviously be on narrowbody, which will make the flight notably cozier than on a 767, A330, 777, 747, etc. But CO does have a great product, both in terms of the "hard product" (IFE, seats, aircraft, etc.) and the "soft product" (FA's/service, customer service, etc.), so you should most likely have a great experience. A few of CO's 41 757's have been retrofitted with AVOD in Y (I don't know the exact number) and all should have AVOD by the end of the year. Even if you don't get an AVOD-equipped aircraft, the experience should be fine - they'll show movies/TV programming on LCD overhead screens.
Have a nice flight - I'll be taking the same route (not necessarily the same flight, as there is both CO21/22 and CO125/126 to DUB) eventually!  bigthumbsup

CO certainly has quite a bit of experience with transatlantic 757 crossings, and with that said, you should have a pleasant experience. I had AVOD in BusinessFirst EWR-MAD last October and loved it. This system includes touch-screen controls which are MUCH better than the classic controller. As far as legacy carriers go, CO is among the best. Enjoy your trip and post a trip report!

I've flown CO 757s BFS-EWR return twice. Being on a narrow body for a t/a crossing isn't that bad. I have no complaints about the CO product and enjoyed my flights (apart from a late middle-aged coupled in the row in front of me putting their seats back and "making out" for most of the journey).

Have done EWR-LIS-EWR and CLE-LGW on them and its not an issue at all.

Easier to get personal attention from a flight attendant as there are less people to battle with...just a though
I sell airplanes and airplane accessories
