30 Minute Layover At CLE

Mon Jun 28, 2010 8:16 pm

I am travelling with my parents and sister from FNT to LAS. I have a thirty minute layover in CLE. The first flight is through CO Connection [or Commutair]. We arrive at CLE at 6:15 PM and our flight to LAS is CO 585 at 6:45. I have some questions.
1. Does Commutair planes use airstair NOT gates?
2. What is your advice for connecting at CLE in 30 minutes to our next flight?
3. Will I be able to take photos of the Q200 I flew or other planes around CLE as I leave the Q200 to my next flight?
4. What are my chances of the CLE-LAS flight having the PTVs in Y?
5. Any tips, warnings, or feedback about CLE and flying CO for 4-5 hrs?

1. If the FNT-CLE flight lvs FNT on time, it will get to CLE early.
Regardless, sit as close to the forward pax door as possible

2. What advice do you want? Dont waste time and get to the LAS flight and board it quick.
Your overhead space will be at a premium especially if you are boarding apx 15 minutes before the door closes.
Check your seat chart the day before departure. It will tell you how many is one the plane...i.e. how much overhead is
going to be taken.

3. You will a little time but.........not much. You're changing buildings.. D to C.

4. whats the equipment?

5.No tips or anything special you need to know about....too bad you don't have another 30-45 minutes at CLE
for photos but the Q should get in 10 minutes early. I've flow the route half dozen times and we always have.
You may have to wait for an inbound crew on the back trip to FNT.......remains to be seen.
safe

2. Will do. Thanks
3. One of my family members walks very slow but is not handicapped. Should we request a wheelchair?
4. 737-800
5. I'm not flying CO back to FNT. Booked my flight on hotwire and the airline going back to FNT is AA.

Hi there,
I have been to CLE many times, in fact I go there twice a year.

- Most probably you will arrive on a air-stair and not a gate. so you will get a chance to get some pics.
- Ask for a transportation to get you C terminal. nothing special in CLE.
- You'll get to watch a movie on an LCD screen which will be shared by everyone.
- Just count the minutes to get LAS.

Hopefully, your flight from FNT will arrive early at CLE. Make sure FNT issues you boarding passes with seat assignments for the CLE-LAS connection.

Regarding the 737-800--according to the CO website, 55% (59 of 108) are DirectTV-equipped. Six dollars to watch what you want. Otherwise, on the unmodified aircraft with drop-down video screens every couple of rows, you pay $2 for earphones.

Have a great trip!
