So many times, I would go up on the old observation deck at Detroit Metro (the one that was on top of what is now concourse C at the Smith terminal)....New York Air used the first gate on the north side of that concourse....seeing that beautiful, clean, red MD-80 sitting at that gate made the cost of admission to the deck (10 cents) worth every penny.
Having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a swimming pool.....

I several times on NY during the summer of 1984. They offered cheap rates and excellent service. My flights were mostly out of LGA on DC-9-30s and once on an MD-82 late at night to DCA, flying over Central Park with a fantastic view of Manhattan and then the same coming into DC. Very fond memories of a wonderful airline.

I flew them a few times between Islip, Long Island, NY to Washington IAD.
Great fares. Nice 737-300, DC-9-30's and MD-80's. Pretty red paint scheme. Nice onboard service: Breakfast bagels, Afternoon/Evening Nosh: breads, cheese/crackers, and wine. Not sure if wine was free? Cute flight attendants. I remember those 737-300's and MD-80's took off like rockets at ISP. A nice little hub operation at IAD that catered to the business person. Too bad they did not last.
