Dave Lundy ’70 is Continental’s 787 Fleet Captain. As such, it’s his task to integrate the 787 into Continiental’s operations. Tough job? Sure. Walk in the park for this former fighter pilot? Sure as well.
Dave states that Continental’s plan is to introduce the aircraft into US operations first and also do some intercontinental non-revenue (think that means empty – no passengers) flights. This gives the entire team at Continental – aircrew, ground crew, sales personnel – a chance to work with the aircraft before things “speed up”.
Dave Lundy – fly safe, my friend!
