HAM, TXL, but still no MUC.............
I was wondering about that too as MUC is definitely higher yielding than TXL and most probably also superior to HAM in this aspect.
I can imagine that CO fears not being able to attract enough business pax who have been choosing LH´s Privatair flight from MUC to EWR so that they rather step into new markets like Berlin and Hamburg where there is less competition.
Anyway, great news for HAM, I hope the flight turns out to do well.

Considering the amount of work that I have been and will be doing for a company in Lübeck (although mostly in their Boston, USA office), I'm quite happy to see this as it will give me a quick route to get there. I would have to go into FRA or AMS currently. Who knows, I may be one of the first riders when these flights start. Outstanding work by CO.

Hamburg makes 6.
With CO opening 2 new flights to Germany they might be trying to give the German market another go. Ideally these flights to secondary trans-atlantic markets will mirror the success that Continental has had to secondary British markets.

MUC already has a lot of traffic to America. LH has a daily JFK and a daily all-business flight to EWR. DUS also has an all-business LH flight to EWR. And LTU has announced an DUS-JFK for next summer too. So both markets are already covered. HAM and BER are completely new transatlantic nonstop markets.

But why will HAM and TXL work if DUS and MUC didn't??
Running smaller aircraft, the 752, most likely. When CO flew DUS and MUC before it was with the DC-10-30, I believe, and that was probably too much capacity for the route. With the 752, you have a plane much more suited for the route.
Oh, by the way, don't be surprised if MUC and DUS are started back up, using a 752 or a 762....
