Continental plans for 787 introduction

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES plans to take delivery of four Boeing 787s in the third quarter of 2011 and two more in the fourth quarter, becoming the first airline, other than lead carrier ANA, to be positive with its introduction dates.  In a US Securities and Exchange filing last week it confirmed 11 of the Dash 8s (long haul) and 14 Dash 9s (a larger version with further extended range).  The aircraft will arrive fitted with the new BusinessFirst interior and are likely to be initially used on the highly competitive Newark to Heathrow route, probably ahead of the introduction by British Airways and Virgin Atlantic of the same aircraft. www.continental.com
