Hello, my fellow anetters!

Let's look back twenty years ago....yes....20 YEARS....(December 15, 1989)...at Newark International Airport....

www.departedflights.com/EWR89intro.html

Well....what suprised me....

I was actually suprised at how many large metro areas Continental did not serve (including some former People Express cities)....no Dallas/Fort Worth, Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Phoenix, Nashville, or San Diego.

I was suprised that Eastern's service to Florida only included cities on the southeast coast....(FLL, MIA and PBI). Nothing to Orlando or Tampa.

Holiday Airlines seems to have a decent presence...can anyone provide information on this carrier??

Midwest Express daily service to Grand Rapids....who knew?!?!

United Airlines....suprised to see a 747SP to Los Angeles.

USAir...I knew they had a large presence at LaGuardia....but very suprised how many flights they had at EWR in the late 80s.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for posting this! EWR was truly in a WEIRD state back in 1989 by the looks of these schedules.

First, UA wasn't that big yet. They flew to the hubs but that was about it. The 74L to LAX was the introductory use of the type at EWR, before UA acquired the rights from EWR-LHR. UA got larger in the early/mid 1990s.

CO was in shambles back then which is why you didn't see non stops to DFW, MSP, BNA etc. There were many who avoided flying CO out of EWR back then and chose other airlines for their frequent travel because they were in such a bad state.

AA flew BDL and PVD? I couldn't find it on the schedules...

I think the big surprises besides US back then (and they even had a larger operation come the early 1990s) was DL who flew 767s to ATL and FLL as well as 757s to MCO and CVG. DL really played around with EWR back then (even flew EWR-LAX in 1990.)

Back in 2003 I was on a DL flight to CVG and it was a 767! I was late getting to the airport, and when I got to the gate, I thought that it was closed already! They hadn't even boarded yet! There were only 6-7 pax on the whole plane on very a early am flight. It was awesome!

So were operating bigger jets more economical back in those days despite the express planes being around? I miss flying wide bodies on shorter flight! Yes, not being so PC with current environmental issues!  duck

This was in the midst of their bankruptcy, they shut down their JFK operation and were concentrating on EWR, LGA and ISP. Sometime around 1988 prior to their bankruptcy they dropped a bunch of routes from EWR, including MCO. Those were too much competition for sister carrier CO, I flew EA EWR-MCO on a 757-200 in the Summer of 1988.

Before ultimately shutting down EA dropped MIA but added TPA from EWR, they also added Ponce and San Juan from EWR.

But check out their service levels to the cities they did serve, 7 daily (all mainline) to Buffalo, 5 daily mainline flights to Portland ME, 21 daily mainline flights to BOS etc..

Btw..

CO added nonstop EWR-PHX on February 15th, 1990.

US had just merged with PI in 1988, and PI had a fairly large presennce at EWR already. IIRC we had 70+ flights in the early 90's. It is rather embarassing as to what they have there now.

US Air was the second largest carrier at EWR at the time, they have all of the A-2 concourse. I flew Buffalo-EWR on a US Air DC-9 in 1990, even further back I flew Piedmont EWR-BOS as a 10 year old on my way to baseball camp.

In 1990-1992 in addition to flying EWR-LAX, UA also flew EWR-LHR/NRT. I really miss UA's presence at EWR!

Yes, Piedmont was quite big at EWR, starting in the mid-1980s. USAir kept that strong presence until about 1994, when the competition with CO became too intense. They had flights to Florida, BOS on a shuttle basis, DCA hourly and other flights throughout the Northeast. I actually saw an airport map of EWR in the November 1993 USAir Magazine, even it was never officially a hub.

Quoting Tommy767 (Reply 1):

Not too surprised at that. They had tag-ons to BDL and PVD from either BOS, JFK or PHL from transcontinental flights for years. It appears those disappeared not long after this schedule.

Quoting JBAirwaysFan (Reply 10):

Yes, that's how CO became a relevant player in the Northeast. It's also how PIT entered the CO network, believe it or not. Until 1987, CO never flew here.

Tommy767, I actually just deleted the listing for Hartford-Newark because, after checking it, I realized that particular route/flight was discontinued on December 15, 1989....the same day the OAG I am using was effective. So it, essentially, only operated the one day in this OAG.

However, the routing for the flight (AA 1259) was Hartford-Newark-San Juan-Port of Spain.

The Providence-Newark flight was a daily flight and the routing was (AA 1199) Providence-Newark-Dallas/Fort Worth-Harlinge.

That is correct. Both People Express AND New York Air began operating as Continental on February 1, 1987.

By this time (12-15-89) Eastern was operating in its post-strike, shrunken BK state? IIRC they struck in March 89 and grounded allot of planes...so this reflects their pull down.

US had a pretty good presence at EWR up until the late 1990s. US flew to all the hubs and focus cities from EWR. It's interesting how they really tried to go up against CO as many carriers also did on routes back then.

Thanks this was CRAZY. You'll never see this nowadays with AA from EWR. They also had a strong presence back then as well. For business my Dad initially gained elite on AA in 1991-1992 and eventually switched over to CO a year later. I remember searching the NYT database in college and there was a press release from 1991 about the upcoming EWR-EGE seasonal 757 routing and they mentioned how AA was expanding up to 9 gates in A-1. I don't think this ever happened though. AA back then also served Santo Domingo non-stop from EWR as well as LHR.

This was poor grammar. my bad. I meant that UA had not reached their peak at EWR until the mid-1990s. In 1989 they seemed to have a rather scaled down operation (although a good amount of widebody flights to boot)

Actually, I just found a SMALL reference to them in a book. Interestingly enough....this OAG was effective December 15, 1989. Holiday Airlines ceased operations three days later on December 18, 1989!

Different times....10x daily flights EWR-ROC, and six of them mainline! But CO had already shifted ROC from the 5x daily mainline offered by People Express down to 1 mainline and 4x Express. US 5x daily mainline...1x 734, 1x 733, 3x 732. In those days US's ROC operation was around 30 mainline / 15 "former UR/PI large-regional" departures and some props. The big post-consolidation downshift to regional prop a/c was just beginning.

Still, it was amazing what USAir was running on regional routes at EWR back then, once PI's not insubstantial EWR operation was thrown in. Back in college in the late 80's I used to make connections on PI at EWR, going CVG-EWR-ROC. PI had a whole A terminal satellite to themselves or close to it, I remember, even pre-US. US was probably still doing some connections at EWR in December1989, to be blowing away the EWR hub carrier on seat capacity to a regional spoke like ROC.

I remember flying CO into EWR to make a connection in July 1987 (ROC-EWR-CMH) just after the CO-PE-NY merger, and my flights went through one of the B terminal satellites, much of which Frank Lorenzo had just shifted from EA to CO to accomodate former PE flights. I think Terminal C might not have been completed yet, but CO wanted to get PE ops out of the North Terminal.

Thank you, N702ML, as always for your great work.

Actually, at least a small part of the North Terminal must have remained open.

I am looking at a terminal map for Newark in the February 1, 1987 Continental Airlines timetable and under the map for Terminal B there is a note that says:

"Hourly flights from Newark to Boston and Washington/National plus Continental Express flights depart from the North Terminal."

CO flew EWR-STT-STX-EWR, I flew it myself several times. There is business demand for EWR-STX, Hess which is based in New Jersey has a huge refinery in Saint Croix. And the runway was lengthen by 1989.

CO, AA and PA each flew EWR/JFK-STT-STX, all three also at one time operated A300s on the route. Also prior to CO launching EWR-STT-STX in '89 Eastern was flying nonstop EWR-STT, with a 757.

Yes, US and CO both had large presences at EWR and LGA. Some say that there was a "Gentlemen's Agreement" between the 2, and as a result, US pulled out of EWR to concentrate on LGA, and CO did vice versa - pulling out of LGA for EWR. I actually think when CO did this they pulled entirely out of LGA for a few years. US got the almost completed CO/EA terminal to themselves at LGA (Signage was already up for CO and EA), albeit paying an enormous sublease. Of course we all know who got the better end of the deal.
