Continental is slated to begin New York Laguardia to Norfolk Virginia with four daily Embraer Regional Jet flights. Two of those flights will continue on to Jacksonville Florida.

Is COEX trying to gain a larger share of the market by continuing their flights from LaGuardia onto popular destinations? They did it with Richmond, and they're doing it again with Norfolk.

What's next, New York-Knoxville-Dallas Love Field?

Most of these continuation/point-to-point flights will eventually end up with a Florida city as its final destination.

So you're saying that Continental is going to be doing more of these? Do you have any information about what these will be?

Thank You.

I don't like the idea of CO doing this. Flying between cities that are not hubs hurt them back in the 80's and lead to bankruptcy. Examples were Kansas City to Omaha or Miami to Atlanta. They tried this again in the early 90's with Continental Lite only that time it was a discount type airline. They should just stick to CLE, IAH and Newark and build from there. If they want to expand from there then they should build a hub out west or in Europe.

The problem in the 80s was that CO did not have suitable equipment types for the service. Operating 5 daily 727-200's MCI-OMA is going to hurt you. With the ERJ-145, we can operate profitably on flights where there is a market for 40 passengers a run. With the smallest mainline jet, the 737-500, even 40 passengers is suicide. But with the RJ, 40 pax is more than enough to break even.
