Was checking Sabre and cannot see any nonstop PSE-EWR flights on CO after 17JAN08.
Is CO leaving PSE for good? If so, what gives?
They've had the route a few years now (can't remember what year they started).
Anyone at CO who can verify the status of this route?
Any info will help.
Looks like BQN flights will still be operating.
Happy Holidays to all.

Interesting... This is a route started as a response to B6 operating it from JFK. Is B6 staying? Guess CO figured it wasn't worth it. I noticed the flight was a redeye, so it likely was using an aircraft that would have otherwise been idle.

Well the timing sucks on the flight, to put it bluntly. The flight departs EWR at 11:55 PM, arrives at 4:30ish in the morning, and then departs from PSE at 6:10 AM. No big surprise that the flight hasn't worked out given the awful timings.

Yes. They serve PSE not only from JFK, but FLL and MCO too. Plus Spirit now serves PSE from FLL. The yields to Ponce probably suck.

I have heard the O&D yields are okay, but that connecting traffic makes the route sustainable for B6, at least until a better opportunity comes along to utilize those planes or an alternative use is put into place. All three flights-- JFK, MCO and FLL-- operate in the middle of the night. Good connection opportunities out of JFK and FLL. Obviously, Continental has much more in the way of connection possibilities, but with that, comes the fact that they also probably had a slew of other places that would better utilize the equipment going to Ponce!

I just tried to see if it's bookable on CO's website, but found it connecting through SJU...

Question, is that fare right? 159.00 One Way? (Monday, Jan. 28). If so, that's not that bad (or it doesn't sound that bad to me)... or is that normal for that market?

Would that be on a Cape Air flight?

Yes, on a Cessna it seems.

Probably B6 and NK are taking a toll on CO market share even though PSE's catchment area stretches from southwest to southeast Puerto Rico incl. the central mountain areas.

Just curious, is it normal for people in Puerto Rico to gladly schedule a flight that departs at 3:00am?

It's not the loads but the yields and my guess with B6 flooding the market it drove them down to where the flight was not making money.
