Maybe the better question is whether they retract the landing gear when those flights depart? Only half joking; FedEx flies an A310 on a IND-MHT-BOS each day. Ehen it departs MHT, empty, for the quick flight down to Boston, some have reported that the gear are not even retracted.

Some cargo carriers operate fly between EWR and JFK, about 25-30 miles.
Eastern Air lines flt # 701, EWR-MCO Boeing 757

Eastern I believe use to fly between BOS and PVD.


UPS flys daily 757's between PVD and BDL, a little big longer however.

Greetings:

I flown ISP-PVD 5 times, it's quick, it's cheap, and it's beats the ferry and traffic. Don't know why AA keeps ISP-BOS? AA charges a fortune for the 45 minute flight and up to Aug 1 you had to fly a prop. I only wish Southwest would expand even more at ISP.

Regards
Tom

What was the cruise altitude for that segment?

Did you have to circle at all?
