    Being they use MD-80's for the new service the "Roars" in the article title is extremely appropriate and I'm sure intentional !

    Great Job NYC

    Relatively short drive? How about 1:30 hours with no traffic? Good luck where there is traffic!

    Sorry, NOT NYC at all ... that's over 50 miles from midtown, thank you very much...

    Close in our minds, maybe not. But in the minds of those looking to fly the type of service Allegiant provides (low fares to outlying airports), they'll make that drive in order to save a buck. And 50 miles away or not, SWF is still considered a NYC-area airport.

    its our alternate for JFK often times
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    I dispatch into there frequently but try to avoid using it as an alternate. Being the valley it is susceptible to fog and often has worse weather than the destination airport anyway.

    Glad they have more options though :)
