Re: B6 Mistreatment of Parkinson's Pax

Re: Why B6 doesn’t fly NYC-DCA?

Lack of LGA slots. JFK-DCA doesn't make sense since it'd be mostly connection and they don't like that. In theory, they have the best terminal at LGA to run the shuttle. It’s definitely a slot issue. Heck even a gate issue in DCA. They always say they want more slots but I don’t see it happening an...
