Quoting gothamspotter (Thread starter): I had the chance to join Delta's 7-minute, 17 mile flight from LaGuardia to Newark this past Saturday
Cool, good for you, what a great experience, take off and landing is the fun part anyway.
Quoting gothamspotter (Thread starter): As a marketing stunt, I'd say it was very successful, despite a number of folks complaining about the flight's carbon footprint.
How much did this cost? Was it just the oneway or a round trip opportunity? If one-way, I'm guessing a bus back?
Quoting gothamspotter (Reply 2): No one on the flight complained, but some folks on blogs, Twitter, etc
Given just about any topic, there will always be someone who complains about anything possible. Now these are not necessarily those who would complain if standing in front of you, but those who complain for the sake of complaining online who are the loudest noise makers in the world.
Rule number One, NEVER underestimate the other guys greed

JetBlue did a similar thing out here when the 405 was shut down and ran a round trip flight from LGB-BUR. If I remember correctly, they priced it at $4.05 each way. Great marketing ploy for both of them.
