Edinburgh and maybe another UK destination for definite, possibly NCL or BRS I would think.
Also probably more European destinations.



When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

I doubt that Stockholm will get it because they already have 2 daily flyght to New york American and SAS.
Perhaps Gotenburg (Sweden) could be a candidate.

Continental seems to be the jetBlue of the Transatlantic, serving secondary airports.

I dont think a third Munich-New York flight would do good. LH flies daily MUC-EWR on A340 and DL daily to JFK on 763.

CO will probably add KIX and hopefully, ICN as well.

A couple of quick corrections,
First CAL's flight to Stansted is from EWR not JFK.
And Second there's only one flight from the New York area to Stockholm and thats SAS's EWR flight.
American doesn't serve Stockholm from NY,maybe ORD.

Continental is currently embarking on a large international expansion from EWR. KIX and ICN are most likely the next Asian destinations for CO. All of the previously mentioned European cities also may be getting service.

In 2002, when the construction of Terminal E is complete, CO will then have the available space to start an international expansion from IAH. The most likely new destinations will be FRA, FCO, MAD, and AMS (especially if CO and KLM partner up through NWA). I've hears that CO also wants to fly to EZE from IAH, but can't get the rights yet (were given to DL for ATL-EZE). I also wouldn't be surprised if CO launched a flight to KIX from IAH. All of this should be happening by 2004-2005.

Expect a medium to large 777/767 order from CO in the near future to fuel this expansion.

Correction on NYC-ARN flights.

Delta Air Lines serves ARN with daily B767-300ER service from JFK.

Any further international service from CLE planned for the future?

With all these plans, the current outstanding aircraft orders for 767/777 aircraft will not be adequate to replace the remaining DC10s and expand (even if only one-half of the routes mentioned as being considered are put into service). Are we likely to see more orders soon? When the 753s arrive and are put into domestic service (CO said that the 753 would be used for High-Density domestic routes, ie EWR-LAX, EWR-FLL, IAH-LAX), will we see additional 757-200s put into international service from Newark (of course, the 752 does not have the range for IAH-Europe flights), say to additional destination in the UK?

Continental pretty much has the UK and Ireland covered from EWR, with GLA, LHR (via VS), LGW, STN, BHX, MAN, DUB, and SNN all getting service from EWR. I would not be suprised to see service to Barcelona, Munich, Vienna, Dubai, Athens, and somewhere in Scandinavia.

I would like to see CO planes going into geneva for sure and mayby also basel. (basel does serve freiburg/basel/mulhouse) they could surly fly a 757 on this route but if not the surly a 737-800. What about Nice or somewhere around there? Prauge and warsaw would be possible the only compition would be one ageing 767-200 (correct me if i'm wrong) to each that are never filled. do they do madrid? they also need a larger plane into ZRH (say a 767-400 for example it has come once or twice). Have they ever considered flying 737's over the pond. its not much longer to fly ewr-liverpool than it is LAX-EWR!!!

I could be wrong, but I doubt that ETOPS will be given to a 737. Correct me if I am wrong

The Powers-That-Be at 1600 Smith St. have made it clear that nothing smaller then the 757 will fly transatlantic in CO colors.

I believe that the 737NG does have ETOPS clearance, several European charter airlines requested it.

Aloha is flying 73G aircraft between California and Hawaii, is that conclusive?

CAL will not send the 737NG across the Atlantic,however it does have ETOPS certification and flies very long routes from Guam to Cairns Australia and the Island hopper from Guam to Honolulu.

Also CAL sent a 737-800 from Guam to Hainan Island to pick up the EP-3 crew being held by the Chinese two weeks ago.
