New (& only) non-stop to Edinburgh (from US)

FYI, got this information from a mileage statement I received today:

Beginning June 15, 2004, Continental Airlines introduces the first daily nonstop service between New York/ Newark Liberty International Airport, and Edinburgh, Scotland. To commemorate this new flight, they will be offering up to 4,000 bonus miles when you travel through August 10, 2004.

Great news -- about time an air carrier from North America has service to Scotland's capital.

Unfortunately, they are using 757s on this route, just like EWR-Birmingham. Somehow I just don't feel like sitting in a narrowbody plane with 3-3 seating and no personal video screen for 7 hours.

I see the flight on continental.com, though no mentioning of bonus miles.

The new EWR-OSL (Oslo) service, also with 757, starting 6/17, is also on continental.com.

It's nice to see that Continental has found an appropriate use for its long-range 757-200s, now that it uses the much more cost-efficient 737-800s on domestic routes.

I appreciate the thought KS452, and I got all excited, but have you see the fares
