Yes, it is unfortunate. HAM joins a long list with BFS, CPG, OSL, BHX, BRS, STR, etc that have gone away.
If it didn’t work from EWR I don’t think there is any chance at IAD. Post merger does IAD have any service that isn’t at EWR?
Like they couldnt even make HAM-EWR work in a way they want, by offering bad service scaring away business travelers who prefer flying via FRA despite the nonstop.
On trans-Atlantic flights, there is very little difference in service quality between Delta, United, & even Lufthansa. I’ve taken all three in the last year. On Delta & United the 767, Lufthansa the 747. The updated United 767s are actually really nice. Both Delta and United had better economy food imo than Lufthansa (First is obviously a different story.). But, the United and Delta seats were far superior to those of Lufthansa Economy.
But, in all seriousness, isn’t Eurowings starting to go Trans-Atlantic? If so, could they possibly fly HAM-JFK or HAM-EWR. That is much more likely imo.
Can't speak to DL, but I've taken UA and LH multiple times TATL this year and fully agree, the difference between UA's B763/4 product and LH A346/A350 (what I've taken) is fairly small at this point. The days of the EU carriers offering significantly better hard product TATL is in the past.
As for Eurowings, yes, they are taking over the EWR-DUS route, for example.
