CO to discontinue ISP route
CO will discontinue its operations in Islip, N.Y. (ISP), effective Sept. 6, 2005. XJT employees at ISP have been offered other opportunities within that organization or a severance package based on their years of employment.

Quoting A330323X (Reply 5): I assume CommutAir is staying in ISP with the ALB/BOS flights?
I think alot of it depends on who is doing the ground handling in ISP. When CO left ACY (for the second time), Commutair also left because they had no one to ground handle them anymore. Then again, CO only gave the airport 3 days notice!!

Quoting Ssides (Reply 10): To my knowledge, CO has never pulled out of DFW.
You have to go way back, to the 1980's.
I am looking at the Continental Timetable from March 1982.
No Dallas/Ft Worth.
At the time, DFW was still a relatively new airport, Airlines were staking their "new" turf...Braniff, Delta, American were all in the middle of a fierce competitive struggle.
This is what Continental had in the State of Texas at the time.
Some other interesting cities Continental Served at the time as part of their VERY limited Route Network:
Green Bay Wisconsin

Keep in mind that while the CLE flight may have had high fares, I'd bet that the vast majority of these people are connecting in CLE. CO does have to compete with Southwest, Delta, Northwest and US Airways for connecting passengers. This does two things...it will lower the average fare, and it will spread the fare out over more miles. For example, say ISP-LAX is $350 (just a wild guess, but I'm assuming WN as the price-setter in this market)...through CLE, that fare covers 5022 miles, or 6.97 cents per mile, which is below CO's average yield. Thus, the fare loses money.

Southwest plans to double their gates at ISP. When the new terminal opened we went from 3 to 4 gates. The old terminal has since been knocked down and we will use the space to expand the new terminal from 4 to 8 gates. I essence, WN should double our existing schedule out of ISP in the coming years.

ISP is a small station for CO, and the ERJs that flew the route can probably be more effectively and more used elsewhere.......it most likely has to do with yeilds and fares being generated on the ISP routes; first, most pax on the ISP-CLE routes were probably connecting pax going on to other destinations and yeilds can diminish with connecting passengers,sometimes lower fares than if nonstop travel was booked and 4 segments instead of 2 for a simple roundtrip, I do not think that O&D between ISP and CLE was supporting these flights; second, its Southwest effect, as Southwest grows at ISP and offers more and more nonstop and connection possibilities to more cities within the US out of ISP, fares on many routes will drop, making the CO service not practical or profitable.
No, CO has never pulled out of DFW. Not starting service yet and pulling out are two separate things. I used to live in Dallas and the loads on CO have always been good. Since Delta has pulled out of DFW, they have been even better. Between DFW-IAH, DFW-EWR, DFW-CLE and DAL-IAH, they pretty much have the Dallas-Ft.Worth area covered.

Think about this one though.....
-WN pulls out of IAH.
-CO pulls out of ISP and HOU, where WN is dominate at both.
Coincidence???? There was something said a long time ago that WN and CO had a pretty good relationship. I can't remember the situation but CO in some words helped WN out. In exchange in the past WN did not lower fares on routes it competed with CO that it did with other majors like AA, DL and UA. I wonder if they worked out some kind of agreement. Like you get out of my territory and I will get out of yours. What do you think?

Quoting D950 (Reply 17): I work across the street from ISP, what terminal was taken down??
Just the area next to the WN area I think. That area isn't used so I guess that will be it.
Will they just extend upon the new terminal they built, like a hallway after you come up the stairs and next to the little Bar there? Either that or they extend the stairs over and have more stairs caises and the restaurant area will be the center of the terminal with the stairs leading up to it.
Just my guess. Are their any renderings of what it will look like.

I went over there about an hour ago, nothing aesthetically will be done to the original terminal structure, but the east part of the building will undergo changes to accommodate the extra gates I was told.
