American only has that one gate at ISP. I think they might be pulling out some flights as March is not a busy time and most people will go South during those months.

I see it as that they might start flights to DCA (Hub) and that way they would have 2 and 2.

Nice catch!

Nice story in today's Newsday about ISP. Here's the link but it may be behind a pay wall:

With the amount of flights they have daily into ISP, American does not need to reduce flights to make room at their one gate. They only have, what, 3 flights a day now to PHL? So to add one or two flights to another city would be easily accomplished with one gate without reducing any other flights. They could easily run 8-10 flights a day out of one gate, as long as there is no overlap in their schedules. If they are indeed reducing flights down to 2 (which I remain skeptical of this far in advance), I doubt it has to do with making room, facilities-wise.

That being said, I could see them possibly preparing to route existing traffic through another hub (i.e. CLT or DCA). The 2 and 2 idea isn't a terrible one (with 2 flights to PHL and 2 to (hopefully) CLT).

I would hope that either AA will expand their city offerings or DL will return to ISP at some point. It seems to make sense for DL, to have two or three daily flights to DTW and or ATL.
I know the airport commissioner personally and have spoken to her about the choice of F9, but I guess as long as they are doing well, they are good--but I would never fly them. I don't care for unbundled fares, but the most concerning issue for me is IRROPS customer service-there basically is none...if a flight is delayed or cancelled you can't move to another airline without buying a completely separate ticket, and you are at the airline's mercy...as indicated by the recent 12 hour delay on a flight between ISP and MCO.

So today PVD just announced a daily summer seasonal flight to YYZ on Air Canada CRJ-200. Here's to hoping that ISP could get the same in the future!

I know its coming... But the suspense of "Expansion" is crazy!!

Has anyone gotten any insite!?!

LIMA has made a press release and part of it was about airlines that left us. And also announced how American gave LIMA a Silver trophy for on time performance, Ground crew and efficientness of LIMA. Which brings us to the big rumor that American is going to pull a 2/3 route expansion at KISP in the upcoming year.

Today American started CRJ200 flights from PHL into ISP along with the ERJ145 (2 times daily with each aircraft (4 a Day)

Why could this be? Is the CRJ200 about the same size or is it bigger/smaller?

No, a E145 to a CRJ-700 would be an upgrade, for Delta, a 737-800 to an A320 wouldn’t be considered an upgrade because they’re basically the same.

It's likely not due to an increase/decrease in demand, as they both have the same seating capacity. Maybe they have a shortage in planes, preparing for the busy holiday season, or both?

They operated both for quite some time. ISP-DCA was axed due to the US/AA merger which resulted in the merged airline giving up slots. DCA may come back at some point if/when AA gets the slots needed for it.

Is that related to the Air Wisconsin flying going away? I've read that Envoy is bringing back -145s to fill in for that.

Islip has had the E145s for about 2 months now but now the CRJ200 has joined us at LIMA!

I see them adding DCA on top of PHL.

Maybe they would decrease the frequency of PHL but they wouldn’t get rid of it!

I wouldn't see them dropping PHL, but maybe they will add DCA. I remember back in 2014 when they were forced to give up a bunch of routes from DCA because of the merger, and there was an opening for 1 slot at DCA, they applied for the ISP-DCA route but lost to WN who started MCI-DCA.
If they were to re-start that route, I could see 2x daily on CRJ2, increasing to 3x daily in the summertime.

However, I think it's more likely that they would add ISP-CLT instead of ISP-DCA. 2x daily CRJ9 with a RON E175 would cover this route well IMO.

What about Norwegian’s short haul offerings to the Caribbean? On the surface ISP could be a good base for that, and if anyone would try it, its probably Norwegian. I think the demand would be there for a 737. Dont see them doing any transatlantic ops like previously mentioned with the short runway. I seem to remember Newsday mentioning Aer Lingus testing the waters with that some years back but without a runway extension it was a nonstarter.

Many European Carriers have stated that ISP May be in their future (Norwegian, WOW, Aer Lingus, and RyanAir to Name a few). I see Norwegian announcing service in 2019 as that is when ISP is able to do International Flights (TSA Thing). I see them announcing DUB, BGO, PTP, FDF, SXM.

They could definitely operate those out of ISP even with the runway being short. Aswell That ISP is working on getting a runway expand in the upcoming years

If Frontier likes ISP, I could see them adding San Juan summer seasonal, 3-4x weekly on an a319.

I read somewhere on ANet (perhaps it was earlier in this thread) that Frontier is doing quite well, even regularly filling their a321s. I think the demand is there to keep em around and even expand, and admittedly anecdotal evidence shows (ie friends and family still on the Island) always are clammoring for Caribbean flights out of Islip. I think Aruba would do fantastic a few times a week, with both local leisure demand and the US preclearance facility.

Is ISP still getting a customs facility installed?

BOS should work as there is alot of demand from long island to the bos area, but In reality I think it doesnt for a few reasons.

If you lived east of the airport you can take the ferry and it's not that much actual driving, mostly on the ferry you can watch Netflix,work etc. If you live to the West you could drive around or jump on the cheap and frequent flights from JFK. The geography of long island is its hard to get anywhere since your on an island but headed to Boston is one place you can avoid NYC entirely and just drive and head east to the ferries. Maybe if a Southwest or frontier did it with larger planes, more frequent services, and cheaper people would be interested. Overall I think DCA is more baldly needed. The traffic you have to face driving makes that a very long trip. DCA or IAD I would think should be on the airports list of most badly needed.

Not too sure about this. Southwest just doesn't seem to care about BNA lately, maybe if they had more connecting destinations out of BNA, ISP-BNA would work. I don't think they'd want to compete with Frontier on ISP-Chicago.

Many European Carriers have stated that ISP May be in their future (Norwegian, WOW, Aer Lingus, and RyanAir to Name a few). I see Norwegian announcing service in 2019 as that is when ISP is able to do International Flights (TSA Thing). I see them announcing DUB, BGO, PTP, FDF, SXM.

They could definitely operate those out of ISP even with the runway being short. Aswell That ISP is working on getting a runway expand in the upcoming years



In the late 8 early 9th they wanted to extend the runway to attract flights from Europe. The residents screamed bloody murder. It was loud with the DC 9/md80 and 727 and 737-200 today you don't get any noise from the airport jets are a lot quite but the time to expand was then. What could have been :/

I'm slightly confused; Why would Delta's presence increase the chances of JetBlue coming to ISP?


This one has me baffled too. I don't see jetBlue coming to ISP at all unless they can find a niche in ISP-BOS.

Carnival did 727 service to SJU the secondary markets on Puerto Rico (Ponce, Aguadilla) for quite a while IIRC. It wouldn't surprise me too much to see B6 add those or the same Florida cities they run from the other secondary NY airports (SWF, HPN). Nothing major though. It seems like you can fly a plane from anywhere in the Northeast to MCO and people will get on it.

Except the difference between HPN/SWF and ISP is the lack of WN in HPN and SWF. B6 has no one to compete with on nonstop routes to Florida while they would be head to head with WN on those routes out of ISP. In SWF and HPN their competition is connecting options through ATL/CLT/DCA/DTW/PHL.

True, but don't they compete on price with the big boys (and WN in some cases) on those routes at the big three airports? They seem to be holding their own at EWR where KP and other entrants fell to CO/UA predatory tactics. I don't see this as a major expansion so much as spreading out existing demand even further around the catchment area, especially since daytime slots at JFK remain at a premium and I'm guessing at ISP they are not. A single frequency to MCO/FLL/TPA might not ruffle too many feathers

Am I wrong that it seems like F9 gets into these secondary airports and then abandons them before they've even given the market a chance to develop? I'm thinking of ILG, particularly.

Same here. The addition of a major to an already limited market causes yet another player to come in?

For ISP-BOS could Cape Air's equipment do it? They seem to be doing okay with the B6 code shares to the summer islands. If it took off then maybe upgauge to the E190?

It could work, but some people don’t like going up to go back down.. I would love to see that but I don’t think JetBlue is that interested in ISP until we become international... Even then, I don’t think they will add a lot of service (if any)
