The Islanders use Midwest Express charters, usually utilizing a DC9-30 or MD
-80 series a/c (although a couple times last season they did use a DC9-10). I assume they just take whatever YX
gives them...considering they have used DC9-30s from Long Island to Florida, and MD
-88s to BOS
. 99% of the time they depart/arrive from FRG
(Farmingdale). Maybe this season, theyll get a 717 mixed in! Chris, you are right. It is very hard to believe that these places allow DC9-30s to go out so early in the morning. Especially considering FRG
is right in the middle of residential areas.
However, during the preseason for their flight to/from PIT
, they flew commercial flights---I assume USAirways.
