Reported in the UK this week that Continental has been negotiating with several UK regional airports over starting direct flights to Newark. USA flights to UK airports outside London are unaffected by the Bermuda 2 bilateral, and so will be unaffected by the current wranglings.
Continental has been in talks with Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds/Bradford, London-Standsted and Newcastle about Newark flights, presumably to be operated by 757s. All these airports have Atlantic ambition for scheduled flights, currently all have charters to Florida and/or Canada. All Continental's current UK routes do well and it will be good to see Continental serve a few more airports, obviously they're not going to fly to all the places listed above!
Another andvance prospect, and this is only a rumour, is that Continental's MAN-EWR route, currently a successful daily 777 flight will become a twice-daily 767 flight in 2001 - don't know whether they'll use the 767-200 or 767-400 on that if it happens.
