UAL launched JFK
almost immediatly after CO
, UAL was trying counter CO
's encroachment into the Asian business center which UAL had (at the time) a huge presence at with nonstops to LAX
UAL had to pull the route because they did not have the market share in NYC to support the route, CO
has the largest market share in NYC and could also feed the route from many Northeast destinations through their EWR
Rumors continue about CO
-Dehli, it's on again off again. Right now it appears to be off, but that might change "again". Im not sure but I think EWR
-Dehli would be a longer flight time than EWR
, the EWR
route uses Polar route (5?) which means the flight departs EWR
and goes straight North over the pole across Eastern (Western?) Russia, China.
