DL has been cutting flights from ISP since WN has firmly planted it's-self there. DL had flights to FLL, MCO and PBI on DL express if I remember correctly. They also had 3x daily flights to CVG dissapear last fall. The ISP-ATL route had 4 daily flights at one point but was operating at 3 flights for a while until this month. It seems that DL cut ISP-ATL to just 2x daily flights. Is it worth having service for just 2 flights daily? I know they handle the CO express flights to BOS but it doesn't seem feasible to operate a station for just 2 flights daily. Does anybody have a clue as to DL's plans for ISP?

I do not like them - better, I can't stand flying them. It just boils my blood, for various reasons not important to this thread.

It wasn't WN that pushed everyone out. It was the consumers choice to push them out. There is a big difference!

Well, I have to disagree slightly to this statement. I am a loyal DL customer for a few years now. I try to always fly DL, even if they are a little more expensive. Currently, their prices seem to be aroun $10-$20 higher is most domestic markets that the other carriers. This doesn't bother me - especially since I know they are trying to emerge as a profitable carrier and I will probably get an upgrade for my elite status. HOWEVER, when DL is $75+ more expensive, it is hard for me to justify the money. I understand that DL hasn't quite gotten their revenue management techniques down yet but, they have to be within $50 for me - many times at ISP, they aren't. I(read my signature) would rather commute to JFK/LGA or even PHL/EWR to avoid WN!

They are better off going into another airport where they can get better use and yields and better serve a community. Besides, JFK is up the road and is the focus now for the NYC/Long Island area.
