    I just checked.....ex YWG, the earliest flight to ORD is 6am with an arrival at 8:11 am. Not good from Winnipeg. At present, it requires 3 flights to SJU.

    Not sure why the article is making it sound like a new route... I flew ORD-SJU-ORD last year in May on 757. Nonetheless, it is good to hear it is returning. It is always nice to have more choices.

    This is pretty much is restarting this route. I remember flying non-stop (TED) ord-sju several times. I remember when they cut it and it didn't seem to make sense but I am not airline exec... it's not like there are a lot of iah-sju non-stops anymore that they could utilize to get connectors to SJU. Good to see it back.
