Re: LH to announce two new US-routes from MUC

IAH is what I would see, the UA connections would help a lot to feed that route as well. The other I could see both SEA or maybe DFW or ATL. Love seeing the LH A359 here at EWR, I also heard that we are losing our Eurowings DUS flight, which was previously LH, interesting to see if LH gets it back.

Re: Why did DL remove Winglets on some of their 757 fleet?

Some of the Airplanes, like N650DL have a special charter config for sports and other charters. Where as other wingleted 75's tend to be for PAX. Some non-winglet 757's are still for pax.
