Re: Multi-airport cities: Best and worst airport-to-airport connections

Getting from JFK to LGA or vice versa can be a complete nightmare. Public transit options are no good and roads are constantly clogged (I'm looking at you, Van Wyck). What looks like a 20 minute drive can really be an hour or so. Right now, yes, and probably for the last few years. But I've lived h...

Re: Emotional attachment to airlines

I have an emotional attachment to Delta. From infancy, I was a frequent flier to DAB, and once AA dismantled the RDU hub, my family switched to USAir so we would usually fly LGA-CLT-DAB back in the 90s. I remember always passing the Delta terminal at LGA first so as a kid I'd always ask if we could ...

Given what people have said about Deltas goals in AUS, I am surprised to see DFW and IAH and no AUS. SLC-AUS sees alot of business traffic from tech companies.

So that means JFK/LGA-ORD will probably see them considering the heavy presence of AA/UA.
