What airlines operate widebodies between these two cities??? AA?? UA?
I think widebodies could be used in high traffic routes in both US and Europe. The only airline that does that is BA with its 767s.. Also some US carriers fly them between their hub airports..

Lots of different a/c on this route (ORD-JFK/LGA/EWR). Mostly 727 (UA), 737 (AA, UA, CO), 757 (UA), SP80 (AA). The only widebody I found was Korean Air, daily 747 flight from ORD-JFK (flight 85) and return flight 86.

As far as I can see, from the 80+ flights operated between LGA/EWR/JFK and ORD tomorrow, none will be operated by wide body equipment.
Within Europe, many airlines besides BA operate wide-bodies. Some examples:
KL - 767s to LHR
LH - A300s to LHR
SR - MD11s/A330s to LHR and FRA
IB - A340s to LHR and between MAD and BCN
TP - A310s/A340s to LHR and ORY
AZ - B747s/MD11s/B767s between FCO and MXP
OA - A300s to LHR
SK - 767s to LHR

Europe has some very busy routes with lots of freqeuncies, such as Milan-Rome, Madrid-Barcelona and many domestic routes in Scandinavia. There are almost 15 flights from Milan to Rome between 6 am and 9 am!

In Canada there are a lot of Air Canada widebodies on busy routes such as YYZ-YUL, YUL-YVR, YYZ-YOW, YYZ-YHZ, YYZ-YYC, YYZ-YVR. For YYZ-YUL these would usually be 767's but also A330's, A340's or 747-400's (quite often for positioning, however). Strangely they also use CRJ's, DC9's, A319's, A320's (AC and Canadian), and B737's for YYZ-YUL at certain times so you can fly almost all of Air Canada's aircraft on that route depending on the day! Royal flies A310's YYZ-YUL and Air Transat uses A330's or L1011's (I believe) on YYZ-YUL. RootsAir will be using A330's for some YYZ-YVR and YYZ-YUL flights also.

LH flies its 300s and 310s (hopefully soon to be replaced by 757-300s, mho) to FRA, HAM, TXL, MUC and internationally from FRA to CDG, LHR, CPH, LIS and in summer sometimes to málaga (AGP).
the a-340 flight from FRA to MUC should be purely to be for positioning reasons. that could change this summer, though, because LH increases it´s a-340 fleet in muc and so more a-340s will be based in MUC.
If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

Business travelers preffer frequency over the size of the aircraft, and Chicago and New York are two of the nation's largest business centers. Other than that, the only other people flying the route are those who connect on either side to another flight.
