No more CO18, the 9am EWR-LHR ? (Over Christmas)

I noticed, while booking a trip to visit family, that CO 18 (my favorite flight to London) is GONE from the schedule after Dec 20, 2010. Egad.

I show the flights back on the schecule after the holidays in January. Late December is a busy time, extra flights are added to Florida and other vacation destinations so the aircraft is probably needed for this service.

CO cut back many European and HK/China flights over each Christmas holiday period. Slow business season. Nothing unusual.

I love that daytime flight to LHR. Helps beat the jetlag. The smarter thing would have to cut one of those evening departures while keeping the daytime flight.

Now the only alternative is to fly trAAsh (which I won't) or BA for the daytime flight from NYC to London

VS also cut it from the schedule, ex EWR.

They are going to need to repurpose the CO18 flight number for ORD-TLV

You can also take UA922 IAD-LHR. A flight that I like for the same jetlag defeating reason.

It comes back. It isn't gone forever. Relax.
