What two cities in the US are closest together that both have mainline service. Let's leave out multi-airport cities (JFK/EWR/LGA). But, ISP/LGA could count, as well as BOS/ PVD.

I would think that MIA and FLL (19 miles) might be the closest. What are others?

MIA and FLL don't count if you are leaving out multi-airport cities. They are both in the Greater Miami area. They serve a very similar purpose that LGA and JFK do in terms of route networks. FLL is the main domestic gateway, with generally higher frequency to destinations on the Eastern seaboard, where MIA is the main international gateway.

Westchester is part of the New York City metro. Lot's of commuters from Westchester County to Manhattan.

West Palm Beach is also part of the Miami metro, again, lot's of people commuter from Palm Beach to Miami.

In both cases, they commute by train, because the distances are far.

However, you rarely see people in the MIA area flying out of PBI, and PBI-area people don't use MIA much (unless they are going to LatAm or Europe). People in the White Plains area use New York City area airports all the time, though. Fares out of HPN are very, very high.

Lets not forget LAX, ONT, BUR, SNA, LGB, all of which recieve main line service. Also in CA you have SFO, OAK, and SMF (Sacramento, I think). There's also HNL and OGG in Hawaii. Farther north there's PDX and SEA. Back East you have PHL, BWI, IAD, CA / KDCA), USA - Virginia">DCA, and even ACY, all of which definately recieve Mainline service.


Long live Aer Lingus, the Flying Shamrock!
