Changing it to Taiwan Airlines is not that easy or simple. PRC doesn’t like the idea of Taiwan (Republic of China, hence the name) being independent (even though they effectively are) so they will likely ban the airline from flying to Mainland Chinese airports. If China Airlines were to change their...Jump to post
The train options out of EWR are a bit lackluster at the moment but once the PATH extension opens it will provide a cheap, fast, and direct route straight to the World Trade Center. Honestly I think they also should build the cancelled Newark Light Rail extension that would’ve connected EWR with not...Jump to post

The hub of the Korean community in the area is NE Queens and spreading along the north shore of the LI JFK is the better choice UA, with a hub, is the best choice to start ICN Samsung and LG also have major regional headquarters in NJ, so there is a clear business incentive for UA or OZ starting IC...Jump to post
New Jersey obviously has its own immigrant communities, large corporations, wealthy enclaves, etc. which would almost entirely go to EWR, along with more of the Downtown Manhattan traffic and Staten Island residents. That's why EWR has a very healthy dose of international carriers serving it (lets ...Jump to post
B6 expand more at EWR? How? B6 has acquired multiple gates at EWR ever since WN left, so they’re not limited to that one gate at Terminal A anymore. Sure, they still need to secure landing/take off slots but the additional gates are a huge win. Seems like B6 is looking to make EWR into a secondary ...Jump to post
I believe they run buses taking pax from North Jersey to JFK. I think Korean runs these shuttles also from North Jersey to JFK. KA and OX don’t run any official shuttle service into NJ. That’s CI and BR you’re probably confusing it with. [quote=“jerseyewr777”]I do think we might see TPE coming back...Jump to post
EWR has really gained so much over these past few years. One really big gaping hole in the network though is ICN. Not only is there a reasonably large Korean population in NJ, but Samsung and LG both have regional offices in here as well. Really surprised that not even UA has started this route yet....Jump to post
A Hawaiian A332 (N380HA) flew from OAK to EWR using the flight number HA722 just yesterday, and it doesn’t seem to have moved since. Anyone know what the purpose of this flight could be?
While looking at Flightradar24 recently I’ve noticed that flights approaching EWR appear to be meandering around to avoid flying over some area near the town of Woodstock, NY. I did some research on the area and was unable to find any reason as to why planes are avoiding it. Now today, flights also ...Jump to post
I'm guessing that with the master plan all non-star alliance carriers go to an expanded terminal one, while United and the other *A carriers go to whatever replaces Terminal C. Something I'd also like to see is an extension of the Newark Light Rail to EWR. There was originally going to be a Newark t...Jump to post
I think the closest option for something like this to happen would be to expand Mercer County Airport in Trenton and rehab CSX's West Trenton line to allow Septa (currently serves Philadelphia) and NJ Transit (proposed service to connect to Newark Penn Station.) The expanded airport would still nev...Jump to post
This could be possible if the land wasn't already so densely populated. Because of this there will most certainly be NIMBY opposition if a large airport is built.
And an airport in the Pinelands? Forget it. It will go just like when they tried to build NYC's new airport in the Great Swamp Refuge.
This idea is very unlikely to happen but not impossible either. Maybe if an airport were to be built between NYC and Philly, you definitely need to run express trains, similar to the Narita Express. For example, a dual third/catenary train could run from Ronkonkoma to NYC, Newark, New Brunswick, and...Jump to post
not that much transatlantic activity in EWR. That is very incorrect. United flies transatlantic from EWR to: AMS, TXL, BRU, DUB, EDI, FRA, GNV, LIS, LHR, MAD, MAN, MXP, MUC, CDG, FCO, ZRH, TLV, ATH, GLA, HAM, KEF, SHN, VCE, and that doesn't even count other airline service. *facepalm* You're only t...Jump to post
EWR to East Asia in general is criminally underserved, especially by foreign carriers (at least compared to JFK). EWR-ICN is one significant route that comes to mind. New Jersey is home to a large Korean population, and many Korean tech companies have major offices in NJ. I've seen ads for Bergen Co...Jump to post

Whats the update on this? Considering TK hasn't announced EWR, DFW, SEA or YVR, and summer 2018 is pretty much here, guess that means ankaraflyjet is full of hot air. Not to say some of these routes won't be announced at a later date. The thing is he said Mid summer so there's still time for an ann...Jump to post
TAP flies to JFK and EWR so that travelers in New Jersey don't have to pay over $20 in tolls, as well as suffer through NEW YORK traffic and a minimum 1 hour 5 minute drive. Same thing for Long Island travelers but mostly the opposite. Period. And if I remember the reason why TAP arrived in EWR was ...Jump to post
Would cameras, screens and power sources really be lighter? There woul not be a need to maintain windows, but I can imagine a plane where some of the screens are on, some are blinking and some are dead. Attractive! Don't forget about the screens with dead pixels, a smudged camera, an insect walking...Jump to post
I'm ok with a windowless plane as LONG as every door has a real window. Emergency exits and windows directly adjacent to them should be real too. If the electricity goes out and the screens stop working, real windows would be a major help. And besides, does a double-screen/camera system full of comp...Jump to post
Then it'll likely use transatlantic flights, given that JFK is the busiest transatlantic hub in the US; not that much transatlantic activity in EWR. Even though UA, as well as AI, EK, ET, LY, and many European airlines, fly TATL/Europe/West Africa/Mediterranean into EWR? Sure, it's not as big as JF...Jump to post
I have a looming feeling that UA at JFK is just another pipe dream, getting slots at T7 is hard, and the only *A partner left there anyways is ANA. And besides, UA has been investing LOTS of money in advertising EWR as a better alternative to JFK/LGA. It would be a big waste of advertising money, no...Jump to post
I was somewhat expecting this flight to go to JFK even though EWR is my main home airport.
Nevertheless, this will be a nice addition to EWR's rapidly growing Asian destination network.
Now all we need is EWR-ICN, EWR-MNL, EWR-HND, and maybe even a second daily EWR-NRT flight...
Recently I stumbled upon an article stating that Jet Airways (9W) was interested in returning to the US. But that was posted in late 2016. Over a year later, 9W has not made any gestures (as far as I know) of returning to EWR, JFK, or SFO. It also makes me wonder why they kept YYZ flights by rerouti...Jump to post
It really is a wonder how EWR completely lacks flights to South Korea of any sort. After all, New Jersey overall (primarily Bergen County and some parts of Camden and Morris Counties) has a very sizeable Korean population, and Korean is the fifth most spoken language in the state. Oh and also some m...Jump to post
I've heard a rumor that NZ might start EWR flights, but they will likely have a stop in LAX or SFO due to potential range issues...Jump to post
The other catch with EWR-ICN though is that Samsung and LG have major regional offices in Bergen County. Obviously that's going to increase demand for flights. Maybe with that logic NH could fly to EWR considering many Japanese tech companies have their regional headquarters in New Jersey, including...Jump to post
The biggest question for me is why EWR lacks flights to South Korea and Turkey. Bergen County is known for having a massive and spread out Korean-American population (I've seen ads for shuttle service to/from Fort Lee and JFK so the demand clearly exists). KAL did fly to EWR at some point though. Pa...Jump to post
Pretty interesting that EWR will now be the only airport in the U.S. to host flights to the Ivory Coast in addition to Togo.
I seriously don't get how preclearance would add any benefit to Saudi Arabia flights, since there aren't as many flights to JED or RYD compared to airports such as LHR, NRT, FRA, CDG, etc... I know the two countries are allies, but still...Jump to post
The U.S. focused on their highway network instead of public transport after WWII, unlike Germany and Japan. Nowadays, passenger trains use tracks that were used on old railroads. Some places such as the Portal Bridge in NJ require trains to go slow, and is a major choke point on the line. Some track...Jump to post
If British Airways does actually serve MSY, they'll probably fly to LGW just like they do with MCO.Jump to post
Since Qatar terminated their routes to Newark, will there ever be an ME3 airline in Newark? EWR has a ton of opportunity for the ME3.

What is your preferred airport of choice when flying in and out of the New York Metro Area? As I live in New Jersey, mine is of course EWR.

Surprising that no Gulf Carrier (or any Arab/Turkish carrier in fact) currently operates at EWR. The New Jersey - India market is very big, since NJ has a tremendously huge South Asian population. Plus, NJ also has a big Arab and Turkish population.Jump to post
EWR is probably a likely choice, even though QR pulled out of EWR a long time ago. New Jersey now has an enormous South Asian population, with demand for Indian flights high. Even though AI and UA have nonstops and directs to India, this might actually work.Jump to post
Today, Air India modified their flights. AIC144 (now 191) goes to DEL, and a new flight, AIC191 goes to LHR, then AMD. Opinions greatly appreciated.Jump to post
