This is indeed sad. Not only that so many people will loose their job with this airline but also they will no longer offering the EWR - DUS route served by mostly 757s and 767s ;( This is indeed very sad, as DUS (Düsseldorf) hasnt that many international flights.

I also think that this is quite sad, not only for DUS, but for the entire region, but I think that this step was inevitable. During the last years, the aircraft on this route got smaller and smaller, and the loading factor wasn't too good.
However, from what I have heard, CO plans to fly EWR-DUS still in the summer.
