    The truth is the airport should have ALWAYS have been well connected to public transit ALL airports should be have easy public transit connections to the city and region they serve. You shouldn't NEED to provide stupid flights to the guy in charge of the port authority to get it. The guy was basically bribed to do a good job (common in countries like India were bribes are common)! There is a regional train station INSIDE Charles De Gaulle airport in France, you can take where you need to go, other stations it connects to like Gare du Nord hook into the Parisian Metro system. When Toronto had thoughts of hosting the Olympics one of the objects was "We'd have to connect the airport to public transit!" Of course the airport should have been connected to public transit already! Years later with no bid in mind they actually connected Toronto Pearson to the regional Go train service (Badly of course).

    I think you guys are missing the point. You don't do business with NY or NJ without bribing someone. NY's official motto is "The Empire State" with the word "corrupt" being assumed and silent, before empire. Not joking at all. It's like IL, but they don't get caught as much here. Example? The whole point of the MTA, as an authority, is that it lets them get out of the paperwork, and legal requirements, of the state's procurement system. Along with authorities, there are public corporations, which take the whole concept to another level. Collectively it's sometimes referred to as the shadow government of NY.

    Left out a ton of information and clearly sensationalized this incident. United has a major hub at Newark, and already serves Columbia, South Carolina from their hub at Washington Dulles. They were not adding service to some one horse town, they were simply adding a route from a major hub to a city already in their network. Additionally, a route from the New York area to Columbia its not unusual at all and airlines have offered this service in the past. Lastly, when you’re saying only 25 people flew the route, you should mention what type of aircraft were being used. My guess is they were using a CRJ 200, which seats 50, so this is a load factor of 50%.

    @Half as Interesting: You showed a PCC when you said the subway, which IS the newark city subway, but that is operated by NJT, and those trains were sent to San Fransisco in 2002. PANYNJ operates the PATH, which is being talked about to be extended to EWR. Although, honestly, I don't know who would take it, because PATH connects two vibrant downtowns, both populated with people that have brains, whereas EWR is mostly home to screaming security agents and stupid tourists.
