Aircraft: Boeing 777-200
Route: Houston/Intercontinental to Newark International
Duration: Two hours and forty minutes
After flying on an uneventful 737-300 flight from New Orleans to IAH, I boarded a 777, flight 50, to Newark. This was my first time on a CO 777, and I was very impressed. I had seat 35A on the big bird, giving me a great view of the sprawling wingspan. We pushed back on time and were airborne shortly therafter, with a nearly full flight, at least 95%. Takeoff was amazing, albeit a bit bumpy. After takeoff, the PTV entertainment started, and I was satisfied with the selection. I played some video games and watched "Evolution", a pretty good movie. Lunch consisted of a cheeseburger, bag of chips, a smores bar, and some carrots....not too shabby! Certainly much better then the small sandwhich which I got on the 737-300 from EWR to MSY a week before. We landed about 35 minutes early in Newark, where I transferred to an ERJ to PVD. Overall I was impressed by Continental, and I just love the 777!
