SWF, as well as ISP have no high-yield business travelers. Those markets, along with HPN are cheap, cheap, cheap tickets, and the major carriers are finding other routes where they can make money with their equipment.
Even if SWF (or another regional airport) makes a little bit of money, it makes sense for the airlines to move the planes/routes to where they can make more money. That is the state of the industry these days, and I can't see that changing anytime soon...
