One more destination to Europe by CO from EWR is due to be anounced at the end of the month.
Which European city will be the lucky one?
I hope it´s PRG, but there are speculation about Moscow Domodedovo Airport and other cities.

I saw on a Czech web site, that CO asked permision for flights to Moscow Domodedovo Airport, I have no idea if this info is true or not. I hope not (I still hope CO will make it to PRG).

CO has filed the paperwork for both Lagos and Moscow, and there are strong rumors that CO will open service to these destinations, but nothing yet has been announced by CO with respect to these services. Service may commence for the Summer 2005 schedule.....but its not yet definite. Service to both Moscow and Lagos will likely be with 767-200ERs; CO has been flying atleast one EWR-LAX roundtrip per day with a 762 recently, so there is an aircraft "available" to start up at least one of these route - probably both routes could be introduced with some adjustments to the schedule and/or adjusting some current aircraft/route allocations.
There is good reason to believe that CO will announced another "European 757 destination" out of EWR - Prague seems to be favored, although Copenhagen or Barcelona are still possibilities.

I vote for Luxembourg City! Tarom was supposed to initiate JFK-LUX before they pulloed out of JFK altogether. Maybe CO could feed off of the EU diplomatic traffic between LUX and both New York (UN) and Washington DC?

Barcelona would seem a logic choice- more logic than Prague due to better yield-potential.Prague is still very much a "backpackers" and cultural destination for many americans ,whereas Barcelona would be both- business and cultural destination.Chances to attract a relatively good C-Class potential into Barcelone seem higher than into PRG.
