    I was unsuccessful with the search function. Mods do whatever with.

    What routes are changing equipment.
    I'm aware that the
    IAD-CDG and
    IAD-AMS routes will be going to a 757. If it happens I will not be connecting in IAD.

    What's wrong with a 757 -- :)ther than that it's not got E+ yet?

    My biggest problem with it is not that it's a 757, rather that it's operated by CO. On a UA flight, I know they'll do whatever they can to take care of the situation if there's a problem -- rebook, reroute, whatever need be to get me moving. I don't necessarily have that same comfort level when flying CO based on prior experiences.

    CO's 757-300s are not BF aircraft. They do have 24F seats. CO only operates 753s in North and Central America. 752s go across the pond and have 16 Business First Lie-Flat Beds.

    You are right, I don't know what I was thinking. Generally CO doesnt use 757s den-EWR, mostly 73 variants.

    I don't get onto 757s that often, though I have been on the 752 a few times domestically EWR-MCO. (and a DUB-EWR last week)

    Sorry for any confusion.

    I've been on PMCO 757's a few times in the summer to/from DEN. They probably cycle them in for higher loads, like conventions, etc. Maybe not anymore now that they need the hub-hub frequency.
