Just heard from our CO manager that they are announcing an new destination from TUS on Sunday...anyone have any ideas? My guess was CLE as she said it was a mainline flight with a 50 minute turn. We are getting EWR back, but that's not it. She's keeping it a secret!  Smile

How about MEX? Didn't CO start doing some point-to-point flights to Mexico City? Just a guess.

I would say Cleveland as well. But a new route not being a ERJ, thats bigger news!

i would be very surprised if it is CLE, just doesn't seem like we would have the guts to fly the route, we dont even fly to SAN!!


okay, I'm waiting for the rich to spread the wealth around to me. Please mail your checks to my house.

I think CLE would do well. We are pretty much busting at the seams, only having 1 mainline to IAH a day...the others are express and are ALWAYS full. If it is point to point, I really can't imagine where they would fly to from here...MEX would be an option, but I would think mainline would be too big...dunno.

I would guess it would be a Mexico destination, probably MEX. I have noticed CO adding more point to point's to destinations in Mexico, although mostly using ERJ's.


The New American is arriving.

MEX would be smart actually as Mexicana has been flying a 757 up here taking deportees back to MEX....if CO was clever they would bid for that contract!

We just talked to some CO fa's that said they thought it was SEA...I guess CO just took over a whole bunch of gates up there....anyone up in that area know??

TUS-SEA wouldn't make any sense for CO, unless CO was planning to make SEA a focus city of some type.

That's what we figured too...we were guessing SNA maybe since they flew there from TUS back in the early 90's...but the flight attendant said they bought a whole bunch of gates in SEA....we'll find out on Saturday.  Smile

For an airline that, more than any of the big 6, sticks to it's hub system like glue, I think the new CO route has to be CLE-TUS. Seasonal, of course.  Big grin

DL was planing on moving to the new concourse in SEA, so some gates have opened up in our concourse, possibly, but i can't imagine us doing that with AS up there.

Well we checked in SHARES and from what we can tell it's going to be EWR...a redeye starting on 30SEP. It will run during the day on Saturdays...I can't believe that's it...it's got to be something more than that!!! They already announced that earlier...so who knows!

Damn, and just when I thought there'd be another CLE route. Sigh.

Yeah CLE would have been nice. This must have been a trick from our CO manager, I don't think anyone is going to win the contest  Sad

Does anyone know when they are going to open the TUS-EWR flight up for sale? I'd love to take it for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Is it going to be served with a 735 still?

It's in the CO system, don't know how long it will take to get in the public system...should be on their website though. It was just loaded today. It is still on 735. On Saturdays it will leave at 1:10p and other days 11:00p until the time change in Oct when it will change to 11:50p departure.

There is no way that CO would do this route. They codeshare with AS and currently AS flies the TUS-SEA route. So I think this would violate codeshare agreements.

For a complete list of AS codeshare partners:

I think that CO is probably going to do a TUS-CLE market...I think there is a demand for it anyway.

And, yes, CO does fly to SAN, but I dont know from where. They are in the same terminal as HP and DL.
