Re: North Central/East Coast Florida Thread - 2019

Which gates have the ground-level "Commuter Gates"? If 6 doesn't have one and 1 does, that might be the difference. I'm pretty sure that 1 does. When CO Connection flew DAB-TPA back in the early 2000s I believe they were using gate 1. So we have Silver at 1 and Sunwing at 5 plus DL at 2 a...

Re: Possible airline service to Farmingdale (FRG) Pros/Cons

I don't think FRG is fully 139 Compliant. They'd need to change that in order to have air service again, at least more than what they have now. Also, the terminal doesn't really have the room for TSA Screening. There's a bit of an airfield infrastructure issue as well. The taxiways are narrow (excep...
