What are your thoughts about these new routes? Delta is reacting to the major shift in leisure travel, then business travel. Delta will be competing a lot with Sun Country this spring/summer. I can’t wait to see how these routes will do. Let me know your thoughts down bellow!

Excited for this! Moab’s an awesome destination with only UA as a competitor. I’m sure it’ll sell out!

Suffolk County alone has 1.5 million people (which ISP is almost smack dab in the center of), and plenty of business as well which I think would support delta well. I get with their JFK and LGA fortresses right next door they might now want to draw from that, but I think just some RJ service to ATL and DTW 2-3x daily would do pretty well. They used to do ISP-CVG and ISP-ATL, but ended the ATL flights in 2008 when the recession hit and they were merging with NW. Many people here prefer the convenience of ISP over dealing with the craziness that is JFK.

True. ATL and DFW to ISP would make sense.

Frontier does seasonal ISP-ATL and does pretty good on it (was even year-round pre-covid) so I think delta might want to compete with that. Plus delta can draw even more with their connecting opportunities. Frontier also used to do ISP-DTW, but loads weren’t all that great, but IMO were enough to support delta RJ service, plus again delta could get more with connecting opportunities. But this isn’t an ISP thread, PM me if you want to continue discussing ISP service

Yeah! I’m pretty sure UA only flies here from Denver.
