Re: Airlines serve JFK for a notch on their belt or to make money?

I want to point out one thing.... Historically speaking JFK was the primary international gateway to the USA transatlantic. In the 80's, when traveling to Europe if it wasn't on PA or TW, it was via a foreign carrier through JFK. That was often the default thought process. I remember this vividly. T...

No. This is not a surprise. The flight only goes sometimes with 30 or 40 people. The flight is daily now. The flight was a 757 recently. Then switched to a 737 with a stop in CCS.
But the government has said any airline dropping CCS during the crisis will never come back.
