In addition to the new Trans-Atlantic routes CO is launching this Summer they are boosting frequencies both Domestically and Internationally.

EWR -LGW goes to 3 daily two times a week (1 757, 2 777-200s), the rest of the week it's two daily 777s.

EWR- PDX goes to 3 daily

EWR-Rome goes to 11 weekly flights with 767-400 and 767-200.

Also Nonstop EWR-Calgary (737-500), as well as nonstop EWR-Vancouver (737-800).

Edinburgh and Glasglow also receive increased frequencies.

CO has definately beefed up operations at PDX / KPDX), USA - Oregon">PDX. Three IAH / KIAH), USA - Texas">IAH flights and now three EWR / KEWR), USA - New Jersey">EWR flights. PDX / KPDX), USA - Oregon">PDX is getting more east coast flights in a hurry. B6 starts the redeye to JFK / KJFK), USA - New York">JFK in June. That'll make 5 direct flights a day to the east: PDX / KPDX), USA - Oregon">PDX-EWR / KEWR), USA - New Jersey">EWR CO x 3, PDX / KPDX), USA - Oregon">PDX-JFK / KJFK), USA - New York">JFK B6 x 1, and PDX / KPDX), USA - Oregon">PDX-IAD / KIAD), USA - Virginia">IAD UA x 1

Has CO already started EWR - Bristol UK? Or does that also start in the summer?

CO also just got permission to fly EWR - PEK. But it will probably be fall before they get around to start that.

I'd like to see us do at least a summer seasonal CLE-PDX. We did one for about 4 days around Thanksgiving, and it was full all 4 days, with a 738.

Probably can't do it with an RJ, and that's why we don't get it.  Sad

Newark-Bristol starts in May and Newark-Beijing should take off in time for the peak summer travel.

Good news for PDX. I wonder if CO will move gates because of the added flights. They operate out of D1 and D5. HP has D3. I wonder if they would want two gates side by side?

Surprised to see two 777's at LGW, I thought they were to be used for China and African routes?

Will CO use any of their options on the 777, they certainly could do with a few more 777's?

China does get a 777, but I think Lagos & ACC get combined service with a 762.

CO desperately could use more 777s. I wish they could afford them, but I think they have enough trouble convincing unions and creditors they can afford the 753s and the 787s.
