Does anyone know how the loads on the flights where?
I am sure that the flight was demolished because of Metro North. (train service)
So I doubt that there would be a market for lets say Jet Blue from JFK-SWF.

After the AA587 crash at JFK and while JFK was closed jetBlue was landing planes at SWF and busing passengers to the city. Pretty clever I thought.

I don't know if it would work ... historically, airlines have had a relatively difficult time making these ultra-short hops work, and when they do, they are almost exclusively for connecting passengers.

Well Metro North Goes into GCT in the city and LIRR goes into Penn so SWF-JFK on a train would be annoying, if they did build a SWF train station, then it would be Metro N to GCT,

Ok, on a bad day, how long does it take to drive into the city? An hour and a half?
|Quoting STT757 (Reply 22):|
Flights to JFK on B6 would not work because there's no local traffic, it would be people connecting to flights to FLorida.

The route would also be used by people travelling to Europe, I know a lot of people who go to Europe from Dutchess County and have to drive about two hours to JFK.

Your better off driving or taking car service than connecting between two different airlines that do not have interline agreements.
