On PHL's website, it says they have service on Continental and Continental Express. Is this true? I wouldn't think so because Newark is so close by train.

They had PHL-EWR until 9/11(now Amtrak code-share) that they flew with ATRs, and now they have CoEx on the Jungle Jet to Cleveland(Used to be mix before 9/11 and even before that it was once all mainline), and they have 5 dailies to Houston on mainline.

Houston service from PHL? I looked on Continental's website and couldn't find any flights. Why don't they list it in the flight information on the PHL website?

I looked on Expedia and found them. Lowfareair was right, 5 dailies to IAH. Thanks for your help.

I've flown PHL-EWR on two round trips:

First was in May of '94, on ATR 42 Equipment.

Second was in may of '96, using Brasilia equipment.

Both were interesting experiences.

seems like CO continues to dwindle down at phl. first with the discontinuation of the ewr flts, then the transfer of the cle flts to CO EX and the iah flights are never larger than a 733 or 735, with a rare 73G. although this sat. there was a 738 from ewr, must of been some charter because the flt # was in the 4000's.

If you think CO is shrinking at PHL you would be amazeed how much U has shrunk at EWR over the last 8 years or so, U used to be EWR's #2 carrier. In the early-mid Ninties they flew to Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester, Kansas City, Raleigh, Norfolk, Richmond, Dayton, Indianapolis, Jacksonville and possibly Greensboro.

And all on real jets too, DC-9s and 737s. No DH-8s, J-41s or RJs back then. I flew Buffalo-EWR on a DC-9 in '92.
