There are some EI flights on other days, (BOS & JFK) but not daily.

Without pre-clearance it certainly would detract from the offering.

Strange thing is, that 9am CO flight must be in EWR about an hour before the rest of that 'wave' of flights - can't they go an hour later (or even more, given pax land as domestics, so able to get connections)....

Just a thought - how far can the A318 get from City? Can it reach the Eastern tip of Canada?

Or is this just a conspiracy by the US trying to get pre-clearance into the UK?????
