Will TAM Fly To EWR?

Fri Apr 13, 2012 1:32 am

EWR is the Star Alliance "superhub" yet TAM doesn't fly there, yet other Star Alliance airlines (notably LH) serve EWR.

Thoughts?

Considering that they are about 99% certain to leave *A once the takeover by LAN goes through I can't see why they would start up EWR services.

The real question is when can we expect to see JJ move into JFK-T8 with AA and LA?

If LAN is there then TAM will be there, they may kill the "TAM" name and be "LAN".

I thought the company from this point on was to be called LATAM with the implication that the TAM name was going to stay.

Why would they do that? LAN is not a well known brand in Brazil.

LH flies to both New York JFK and Newark/Liberty out of Germany.
Let's forget for a moment if TAM would leave Star Alliance.
I would like to debate if the [New York-Brazil] market is larger than [New York-Germany], in order to support the hypothetical dual non-stop flights named [Brazil-JFK] and [Brazil-EWR] on TAM.
For illustrative purposes, the former Continental Airlines blocked in the past to Copa Airlines, in order to fly the PTY-EWR sector which was served by CO, in those days. As a result, Copa Airlines was forced to fly to New York JFK.
Both airlines are operating in harmony at this time: CM PTY-JFK 14x weekly plus UA EWR-PTY 7x weekly.
