wow.. that's really cool. I can't believe AA canceled their JFK-BCN launch, now CO is ahead, like always.
Again, i am impressed that a 757 could do that route.
My best friend just flew EWR-OSL-EWR and wasn't to thrilled with the single aisle plane for 7 hours without PTV.

Where did you get this information from?

I don't doubt you (the route seems to make a lot of sense for CO), but I would just like to see some sort of official source.

Wow, that is great!

Wish AA would do it from here in MIA, but I know, it just doesn't make sense.

Visited BCN for a week just last month. It is a fantastic city!

Good news !

Was traveling last week-end to BCN from JFK with DL... and was wondering if there is an alternative to DL as I had experienced my worst check-in at JFK Terminal 3. Also DL return flight from BCN is in the morning, hope CO will schedule BCN-EWR in the afternoon, letting more time to spend in BCN  Wink

The flight schedule is as follows:

CO120 Newark-Barcelona 2020-1020+1 75B
CO121 Barcelona-Newark 1200-1445 75B

Not sure when the first flight is though.

Does anyone think the equip. for the MAD flight will be downgraded due to this new route?

The alternative would be a one stop connection as nobody else is flying this route. So you have the choice.

Prior to this the highest trans-A numbers were 106/107 and 108/109 the late bank to GLA and EDI, so 120/121 skips a few, not sure if this "means" anything. Perhaps now that CO is solidly into the 100s,the numbers will be pulled at random as they used to be from the 10s.


Cory, I replied to you via IM, but given my novice at such I wasn't sure if it worked.

Why would DL want to do that? They've been in the market for quite a few years now (and added ATL-BCN in a few years ago as well) and they have been doing very well with it during most of the year...

It Is Official:

Continental Airlines Announces Daily Nonstop Service Between New York and Barcelona, Spain
Only Year-Round, Nonstop Service Between New York and Barcelona to Begin in May 2006
NEW YORK, Sept 21, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Continental Airlines (NYSE: CAL) announced today that it will begin daily nonstop service between its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport and Barcelona, Spain beginning May 18, 2006, subject to government approval. This service will be the only year-round, nonstop flight between the U.S. and Barcelona.

"We look forward to adding Barcelona to our trans-Atlantic route network and offering travelers something none of our competitors can match -- award winning, year-round service to Barcelona, with quick and easy same-airline, same-terminal connections from cities throughout the Americas," said Jim Summerford, Continental's vice president, Europe, Middle East and India.

Barcelona will become the 26th city in Continental's trans-Atlantic route network. The airline has served Madrid since 1992 and currently operates a daily Boeing 777 nonstop service between Madrid and New York/Newark.

Flight CO120 will depart Newark Liberty International Airport daily at 8:20 p.m., arriving in Barcelona at 10:20 a.m. the next day. Flight CO121 will depart Barcelona daily at 12 p.m. arriving in New York/Newark at 2:45 p.m. the same day. Flying times will be approximately eight hours traveling east and eight hours and 45 minutes traveling west.

Continental's New York/Newark to Barcelona flights will be operated with a 172-seat Boeing 757-200 aircraft carrying 16 passengers in the BusinessFirst cabin and 156 in the economy class.

Continental and Air Europa of Spain code-share on Air Europa-operated flights between Madrid and Barcelona, Malaga and Palma de Mallorca and on Continental-operated flights between Madrid and New York/Newark and between New York/Newark and 25 U.S. cities. A marketing agreement provides for frequent flyer program reciprocity between the two airlines.

This premium-class cabin features extra-wide electronic sleeper seats with 56-inch pitch, adjustable winged headrests and personal video screens. Other BusinessFirst amenities include gourmet menus and award-winning wines and champagnes. A specially selected and trained corps of concierges provides individualized pre-flight and post-flight services for BusinessFirst customers at 26 key international airports worldwide.

The new flights will feature Continental's renowned BusinessFirst service, which has won the Best Executive/Business Class award in the OAG Airline of the Year in each of the past three years (2005, 2004 and 2003), based on voting by frequent flyers worldwide. BusinessFirst was also voted Best Transatlantic Business Class among U.S. airlines in Conde Nast Traveler magazine's Business Travel Awards 2004 -- the seventh year running.

Barcelona, with a population of 5.1 million, is one of the 10 largest metropolitan areas in Europe and one of Spain's largest industrial centers. Major industries include manufacturing, particularly textiles and motor vehicles, consumer electronics, chemical and pharmaceutical research, design, publishing and advertising.

Barcelona is also famed for its unique cultural identity, from the architecture of Gaudi to the historic Gothic district with its Roman and Medieval remains. More than 3.8 million tourists visited the city in 2003. Barcelona hosted more than 1,150 conventions and corporate meetings in 2004, bringing in 360,000 visitors.

Continental Airlines is the world's sixth-largest airline. Continental, together with Continental Express and Continental Connection, has more than 3,100 daily departures throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, serving 150 domestic and 131 international destinations, more than any other carrier in the world. Nearly 400 additional points are served via SkyTeam alliance airlines, which include Aeromexico, Air France/KLM, Alitalia, CSA Czech Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Korean Air and Northwest Airlines. With 41,000 employees, Continental has hubs serving New York, Houston, Cleveland and Guam, and together with Continental Express, carries approximately 56 million passengers per year. Continental consistently earns awards and critical acclaim for both its operation and its corporate culture.

For the second consecutive year, FORTUNE magazine named Continental the No. 1 Most Admired Global Airline on its 2005 list of Most Admired Global Companies. Continental was also included in the publication's annual "Top 50" list, which ranks all companies, across a wide variety of industries, that appear in the Global Most Admired Companies issue. Continental again won major awards at the 2005 OAG Airline of the Year Awards including "Airline of the Year" and "Best Airline Based in North America" for the second consecutive year, and "Best Executive/Business Class" for the third consecutive year.

Congratulations to CO on this terrific new route!! I too love Barcelona it's a great, fun and beautiful city. If they have one to spare at times, I could see them operating a 762 on ocasion but I know their widebodies are in short supply.

Congrats to CO, though one would think they will soon run out of 757s  Silly .
Also, gotta wonder for how long CO will have "the only year-round, nonstop flight between the U.S. and Barcelona." I can see DL making either JFK-BCN or ATL-BCN year-round as a result of this.

Well, technically DL does fly nonstop JFK-BCN year-round (just not BCN-JFK nonstop, that's all) Big grin. During the winter. MAD and BCN are combined as DL90 JFK-BCN-MAD-JFK. ATL-BCN is seasonal though.
