I think OK had flights from PRG-JFK, maybe with A310-300. But that route is gone and those a/c sold.

The PRG and BUD routes for AA have apparently done well and you can see from the additional adds next summer, the strategy works. Year round these routes are tough. There really isn't enough business demand to support what are primarily leisure and VFR routes. DL has tried BUD, OTP, and others nonstop and they have not lasted. They fly to PRG seasonally from JFK. I can see UA adding PRG and BUD from EWR but again, seasonally. The bottom line is these markets in the East are well served by all European carriers (major) and they each have code shares in place with each of the US3.
