Hi all , I was just wondering with the super hub at EWR, what are the CO flights for JFK/LGA?

Continental only sticks to the hub flights out of LGA CLE and IAH. CO has very limited service at JFK with one flight day to IAH. I aso think they may operate a Charter flight to Cuba.

COEX also has one or two flights from JFK to CLE. They tried to build up a RJ hub at LGA pre 9/11 but after the attacks that was dismantled quickly.

Continental operates one daily E-135 JFK-CLE (operated by COXJet, of course), and one daily 735 JFK-IAH...at LGA, however, CO has much larger potential

Pre-9/11, CO was considering building up service at LGA to complement its large EWR operation: aside from the CLE/IAH hub flights, CO was operating twice daily 733 service between LGA and FLL, and CO was considering adding other destinations out of LGA including other FLorida cities with mainline aircraft, its possible that other flights out of LGA with regional jets were also being looked at. The events of 9/11 and its impact on the airline industry put an end to all of that, and CO quickly cancelled the LGA-FLL flights.

By the way, doesnt CO actually own the US terminal at LGA?

Correction. CO offers two daily nonstops to JFK, not one. It may not operate on tuesdays, but there's like a 1520 departure, and a 1900 departure. I know, I've worked them many times.  Smile

On a side not, prior to 9/11, CO wasn't just expanding out of LGA, with the likes of Florida mainlines, and service to cities like MSN, but COEX was also starting a focus operation at HPN. There was HPN-BOS, HPN-DCA, HPN-YYZ service that either had started, or was announced. I think CO was really trying to saturate the NYC market with some point-to-point service that the NYC metro area is uniquely able to handle.

But since then, CO went back to their hubs. There is some indication, with the expanding RJ fleet, that XJT, flying as COEX, might try more point-to-point service, as witnessed with service like SAT-MEX.

There are still HPN-BOS flights using the B1900D as CommutAir.

In answer to the original question, NYC is more than large enough to handle flights to all three airports. The LGA flights are probably for businessmen, who for the most part prefer LGA. I would guess that the JFK flight is mostly for connections--New Yorkers connecting to South/Central American flights at IAH, and Houston folk connecting to international flights at JFK.
