Continental Air Adds Second Daily Service to Israel's Tel Aviv
Houston, June 19 (Bloomberg) -- Continental Airlines Inc., the fifth-largest U.S. airline, will add a second non-stop flight to Tel Aviv from New York, beginning June 20.
Continental first began its service to Israel last August, with a 283-seat Boeing 777 aircraft, flying from New Jersey's Newark International Airport. The second daily flight will also be a Boeing 777.
Houston-based Continental Air serves more than 8.5 million customers a year and has more than 2,200 departures daily.
Is Bethune and Company taking a stab at TW, and if they are will it be a deathblow? ACVitale says that JFK-TLV is profitable for TW, so why doesn't the STL based carrier meet CO's aggression and introduce another 767 daily?
