Re: Could DL return to ISP?

Problem is that Delta has a massive presence at JFK/LGA, just about an hour away (sometimes a bit more with traffic). Long Islanders could easily just take the LIRR to the AirTrain if they wanted to fly Delta. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to allocate aircraft to ISP, where they could be pos...
