i work on the ramp for USAirways in FLL. CO has recently begun flying
757's into FLL on a regular basis..3 a day. all the 757's i've seen of
theirs so far are ETOPS certified (on nose gear door aft of the tow
limit line)
does anybody know why CO has certified these 757's as ETOPS, or were
they delivered to them already certified? What ETOPS required routes
are they flying with them? Are all of CO's 757s ETOPS?
Or are they planning in the future to fly an ETOPS route(s) with them?
appreciate all anybody can answer. We cannot find in our reservations
system any ETOPS routes CO flies with the 757. Whats up here??
