I don't know if this was mentioned before,

But it seems like BR is leaving EWR and moving to JFK starting October 31st.

They will be using Terminal 1, CI also uses T1.

Surprising since I thought Star was courting BR or BR was courting Star. BR has my favorite livery out there, so I wish they would join Skyteam, but with CI joining in September, I know that is flatly not going to happen.

Interesting. Is it me or is T1 quite crowded as it is nowadays.

On a related BR subject, do they have codeshare/mileage agreements with AA?



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Not as much compared to Terminal 4. Nearly every other international airline uses T4. Terminal 1 is pretty deserted in the late evening and early morning hours with only a few flights (KE, AM and a few others)

BR 0031 JFK 22:50 TPE 07:30+2 M W TH S
----------------------------------------------------------------------
BR 0032 TPE 19:30 JFK 21:00 M W TH S

So their flight leaves late at night, by that time T1 is relatively quiet.

I also found it a bit surprising, but there are a number of A* carriers which operate to JFK rather than EWR ( SA, MS and TK are 3 which come to mind) so the change of airport in itslef does not necessarily reflect a change away from *A ( particularly as BR just put in place a new frequent flyer agreement with *A member OZ)



Moderation in all things ... including moderation ;-)

Good point JetBlue777. That is correct.

Happy with the news, albeit surprised. Eva has been at Newark for years now. This would be like SAS moving back to Kennedy. Let's wait to hear STT757's take

Yup, there is plenty of room in T1 in off-hours. Last time I was there though, the check-in space looked like it was getting quite tight. I would expect them to shift to common-carrier check-in stations soon.

Interestingly enough, T1 is busier in the evenings now than ever before. This is due to Turkish and Korean adding additional flights to JFK in the evenings (both 77Ws too, for now at least), and to the new Olympic Air (I forget the new name) moving its early afternoon flight to a late-night JFK departure. At the time the Eva Air flight is scheduled to land, there are probably only two or three free gates available. This is a big change from 5 or 6 years ago when there was literally just the ~11PM AF departure and nothing else between 8PM and 11PM. T1 is filling up nicely.

If the flight leaves at 10:20pm, then passengers would start checking it at around 7:30 or 8PM, so I guess it'll be a bit crowded. I was in T1 two weeks ago at 9PM and it only KE and TK counters were open and the terminal wasn't busy.

As someone who lives in Queens, I can see this move as a good one.

Frankly, the Asian population centers in NYC have become Flushing Queens and Sunset Park Brooklyn. Both much closer to JFK.

These are HUGE population centers that have sprung up in the last 20 years and include large numbers of Chinese, Korean, and Taiwanese.

An Asian airline with one flight a day to the area really should be in proximity to these the neighborhoods . . . and that isn't EWR

I still think its a bad move which cost them plenty of C class customers from more prosperous New Jersey.

I agree. But BR is popular among Filipinos living in NJ, so I guess they'll have to settle with DL via DTW (to MNL)

I'm happy that BR moved to JFK, I also live in Queens. It means more competition which means lower fares.

Along with CX's 4x Daily JFK-HKG which is around 16 Hours nonstop.

Yeah they really have, especially Sunset Park...And it's spread to other nearby parts of Brooklyn too!

After 9:00, there are the following departures from T1:

FCO 9:40 PM B777
FRA 9:40 PM B747-400
CDG 9:50 PM B77W
IST 11:00 PM B77W
CDG 11:20 PM A-330-200
ATH 11:30 PM A-340-300
MEX 12:45 AM B737-800
ICN 12:50 AM B77W

There's also a KX 737 that RON, so like I said the gates are pretty busy around the time the Eva 77W will be there.

Not sure I agree. High yielding passengers who need to fly BR - perhaps because they are going to TPE or a beyond-TPE destination better served by BR than by any other airline - will likely fly BR from whichever NYC airport it uses. It's the junk yield VFR passengers who are more airport-sensitive, and if there are more of those at the JFK side of New York, it's probably a better place for BR.

Of course, to the extent that high-yielding passengers are airport-sensitive, those New Jersey passengers will be replaced with some Manhattan and perhaps Connecticut passengers.

Don't the Newark flights currently have a fuel stop in ANC? But non-stop one way? Or am I thinking of something else?

Taiwanese carries have been able to fly over PRC for a couple of years now. CI doesn't use ANC anymore, they have a stop in NGO. BR stops in ANC west bound. The main reason is because both carries very heavy cargo in their bellies, and it makes more sense for them to stop in ANC/NGO than carrying more fuel instead of cargo.

I think this is a brilliant move by BR. CI recently changed their TPE-JFK schedule to accommodate better times at NGO, but it made TPE-JFK schedules less desirable for a lot of passengers. BR will get a lot of passengers from CI at JFK.
