    CO has already retired its first 762 aircraft, due to its age and high operating cost PPM. The UA 763 aircraft being converted to ETOPS with the new interiors will replace those CO 762s. Expect to see them deployed in/around HNL and GUM, where passenger traffic mix doesn’t justify a 3-cabin configuration, but can support paid business class (if they are market competitive).

    I really like the addition of Economy Plus on the Q400. That aircraft is well suited for shorter flights due to its lower fuel burn, and adding Economy Plus will make it hugely more comfortable.

    I suspect we’ll see some of the 2-class 763’s on routes with more demand than CO’s 2-class 752’s but not much paid F demand. It really gives the combined airline more flexibility. I also wonder if the new pS 752 configuration with 28 premium seats might finds its way onto some international routes that need more than 16.
