|Quoting Jfk777 (Reply 11):|
With most people in the USA living east of teh Mississippi flying from New York to Asia is fine
Connecting at EWR
to Asia is not that bad. The flight from EWR
is only 10 minutes longer than the flight from IAH
, Flying from many places in the midwest and south would not be a big deal.
In addition I do not believe that CO
will start service out of LAX
as they mantain the strongest hub and spoke model out of all airlines and also rely on connecting flights. LAX
is not their hub, and only non-hub routes are to Hawaii and Mexico, therefore a domestic market would have to be created for transpacific travel.
will get more 787s for service to eastern Europe (i.e. Budapest, Athens, Vienna, etc.) and Asia/ mid east service, and possibly Africa if within the market at the time.
Houston will get the 787s to major Asian destinations already served at EWR
in addition to major European destinations such as Frankfurt and Madrid,
In addition I do not see four cities to India just yet. Other destinations will be a primary priortiy, then possibly one destination at a time (i.e. starting with Mumbai in addition to Delhi, and adding more as time goes on)
