Continental To Pull Out Of DUS(EDDL)

Sun Sep 16, 2001 4:41 am

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.

Hope Conti will get up n running better again!

Cheers,

Jan

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.

Oh that's really bad. And I was always hoping to see CO here at STR sometime.

i´m pretty sure that is connected with the downturn in traffic in the wake of recent atrocities...
If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.
