"and Continental Airlines is considering launching routes from Ireland to eight US destinations."

ROTFL. Even if true, I'd bet you even money, CLE wouldn't be among those 8, unless a 5-stop RJ was used.  Big grin

The big question: will JetBlue follow?  Silly

what would the routes even be???? They obviously would have to be w/in a 757 range, maybe BOS on a 73G??????

Quoting CALMSP (Reply 2):

BOS is the only one that, plane-wise, along with CLE, that would make any sense for CO. I can't imagine even what the other ones would be, unless a 762 to IAH is involved. Other than that, nothing even makes sense. Goes to show ya that the media doesn't have a friggin' clue.  Silly

Perhaps CO plans to finally link their two strongholds, namely Mexico and Europe with each other  Silly . I can already see the once-weekly 762 routes like DUB-CZM or SNN-CUU Big grin .

Maybe a Miami service? I agree that the only one i see being viable would be Boston

What is the possiblity that they ment that the CO's 8 destinations include hubs for codeshares like NW or DL (ie: ATL, MSP, DTW etc)

Yeah, but where are the 8 NW/DL would fly to?

The article is a cluster, methinks.  Smile

If they did this route I think that they should use the 757 on it
