I apologize for all of these EWR-STT threads, but another question popped into my mind when I was booking our trip. Does anyone know how this route performs for CO? I would think that it, along with most of their Caribbean routes, would be a cash cow, as since there is no LCC competition, CO charges "highway robbery" prices for a four-hour flight from EWR. Before I found a consolidator fare of $612 for our family's roundtrip next March, CO's own website was pricing EWR-STT at $759. US flies non-stop out of PHL and AA flies non-stop out of JFK, but their prices are all high as well. ATA's new service out of IND doesn't exactly pose much of a threat to the NYC market.
However, I wonder how successful the route really is considering that they have never added IAH-STT service. POS, GCM, and MBJ have all received IAH service, yet STT still has nothing. What's the reason behind this?
