I was trying to book a flight on CO in mid April from TUS-EWR on their non-stop, but it appears that it has been axed as of April 2nd. Is this official and have loads and yields been that low. Well I must say it was nice while it lasted. Great flight back to TUS after the break even though it felt like a school bus. If anyone could give some more info that would be great.

CO's EWR-TUS service is seasonal and winter-only.

The route was supposed to go year round this time when it started in September.

Heres the link to the press release. If it doesn't work the date of the release was 7/26/2004.

My guess would be that summer bookings ended up not justifying the year-round operation. I'm surprised it wasn't seasonal -- actually, like others, I assumed it was.

Like stated above it was intended to be daily year round service. The loads fluctuate greatly, some days good some days bad. During the holiday it was full almost everyday. I haven't checked the forward schedule but in December is was cut back to 4 times weekly. It is possible however they will cut it for the slower summer season. I had hoped they would at least keep it on Saturdays only though. Considering CO is not doing well financially, they need to cut routes that aren't making money.  Sad
