When I was doing EWR-LAX on virtually a weekly basis, despite coming up in the schedule as 738s from time to time, CO17/CO65 EWR-LAX were routinely 752 flights. On the way back, LAX-EWR, the schedule...

I have yet to fly the DL 747, but having done it with NW (I assume these are still NW crews), plus plenty of CO 767 flights, I'll say the following in favor of NW/DL:

-The 747 WBC seat is better...

Perhaps a "Premium Spirit"?

If this is the case, what is the pricing? I haven't spent much time at the PC bars lately, as I've been on mostly morning flights ex-EWR these days, which = no booze......

While we're at it, can we get the Bombay Sapphire to replace Beefeater in the clubs? That'd make my day, and I wouldn't have to wait until I'm onboard to start with the G&T's ;)...

I agreed with your point about the Virgin brand, which has great worldwide recognition, and a connotation of quality.

You'll note that I did not say 'more valuable', or 'better', what I did say...

I never said Continental is a better brand than Virgin, obviously the Virgin name is among the best-known brands in the world, probably more so than any single airline.

While an interesting proposition, VX is simply too small to add anything of value to the CO brand.

The only way I'd see CO making a move to acquire someone would be if the acquisition provided a...

Word is CO may soon be moving to gate space on the same concourse as the club.

That would be a welcome change. Great club, as well. Decor is still PC all the way (which I like), but there's a bit...

The single-tray service is great to Florida. EWR-DEN is pushing it, but there is still a good amount of food served.

EWR-SEA, it's just cheap. If this cut is indeed implemented, CO is saying,

I was under the impression the only flights CO will be catering to 'old trancson' standard are EWR-LAX/SFO, sundaes and all.

Could this perhaps be CO quietly restoring service levels after they...

Very good article. I did have to stop where the author claims a window exit on a 777 is "heavier than you think", though. Gee, is it? Last time I checked, the 777 didn't have any!

I suspect OAK and RNO will make it back on the route map at some point.

OAK was good to get to Frisco in a pinch, especially when CO (briefly) had an EWR-OAK flight. Usually was cheaper than SFO...

It seems that loophole is (or has) closed. After CO paid Amtrak $40-something per ticket for the train segments, it's hard to imagine they ever made any money with ZFV tickets. The pricing appears to...

Do you have a ship number for that airplane?

I've flown on a number of the new 737-800s and have not seen the new-design FC seats (like on the 737-900ER). Granted, I haven't been on perhaps the...

CO has a large maintenance operation at MCO, whereas it does not have such a presence at FLL.

However, most of the Florida flights are turns right back to EWR, so I don't know if it's relevant.

I can confirm with absolute 100% certainty that ships #507 and 512 each have the exact same seats as the rest of the 737-800 fleet.

The 737-900ER, on the other hand, all have the new-style seats....
