Only problem is the times. JFK-PDX connects with arriving European traffic but the PDX-JFK redeye doesn't, which could be a problem.

Pretty good, now all we need back is JFK-DEN service (would the ERJ-170 be a good fit for this route?). Good luck to Delta!
|Quoting Delta.com News:|
NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2007 -- Delta Air Lines customers this spring will have one more reason to choose Delta's growing New York hub for transcontinental travel as the airline adds new nonstop service between New York's Kennedy Airport and Portland, Oregon, effective April 19, 2007. The daily round-trip flight complements Delta's existing transcontinental routes from JFK to San Francisco, Seattle, Las Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City and Phoenix (starting Feb. 15).
"As part of Delta's continued expansion at our New York hub, we're offering customers the convenience of nonstop service to key transcontinental destinations, including Portland," said Bob Cortelyou, vice president -- Network Planning at Delta. "Additionally, our Oregon customers will be able to take advantage of our strong international connections from our hub at New York's JFK airport, including new nonstop service to Europe, Africa, India and the Caribbean."

How's that, UAL only serves Denver from EWR and LGA.
|Quoting SLCUT2777 (Reply 7):|
checkmark You're correct, the only JFK service from DEN listed is via IAD. DL should look at this one sooner than later. Just a/c availability.

Same situation as the JFK-SAN restart recently - probably an aircraft utilization issue. In the meantime, SAN-JFK has been switched from a redeye to a day flight that connects nicely with the European flights.

...when AA just last month discontinued their long-standing red-eye to DFW...
|Quoting SANFan (Reply 20):|
I don't know the PDX sked's enough to know if this is maybe what they did there (in reverse.) Did they drop a DFW-PDX also? (Looks like currently there are 4 r/t PDX-DFW.)
|Quoting S12PPL (Reply 16):|
Very interesting. The only bennifit to taking the red eye, would be the connection to east coast cities. It's nice to see so many options out of PDX, finally!!!
|Quoting AeroWesty (Reply 22):|
AA has really pulled back in PDX. They eliminated all the RenoAir and TWA routes we used to have, and who knows what they'll do with our remaining 6 flights.
|Quoting BosWashSprStar (Reply 21):|
Do the 738s have/are they getting the new seatback IFE?
|Quoting Azjubilee (Reply 2):|
What sense does it make to make such a big deal about their JFK hub with connections to all of Europe, Africa, India etc... when the flight doesn't connect to any of those departures?
|Quoting LHPDX (Reply 28):|
Is there anything else brewing up for PDX in 2007? A record 14.000,000 passengers a year seem to be our magic number for new services........
