      Like Aer Lingus already did once?? 😉 https://twitter.com/WandrMe/status/756780519946346497

      And United certainly advertises it heavily as a NYC-area airport. To be fair, it can be comparably close to NYC versus the other two airports, depending on which part of town you’re headed to.

      Yes, Newark is no less convenient as an airport – particularly for Manhattan – but let’s be honest, it has NO business having a second Penn Station. I’ve encountered multiple domestic travelers having issues stemming from that mixup…can only imagine how confusing it might be if you’d never been to the area before, or English wasn’t your first language…

      I always wonder how a budget traveller arriving at EWR makes their way to Manhattan with limited English skills.

        How would that be any different from arriving in LGA or JFK and trying to go to Manhattan with limited English skills? Just because those are in NYC boroughs doesn’t necessarily make it easier to get from point A to point B.

    Manchester-Boston Regional airport (MHT) in Manchester, N.H. is at least 90 Minutes from downtown Boston with no traffic. Pretty consumer hostile in my opinion…

      * 60 min with no traffic, but honestly closer to 30 min if you have a Mass driver’s license. 90 usually means you got blocked in by a couple of green plates (Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire or an “elderly” Mass plate) *

      Kidding aside, it’s about the same distance (50 miles) as Worcester or Providence airports from Boston. All three are regional and considered a pressure reveler to Logan International (Boston). Manchester has been the most successful at this since the north eastern corner of Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire and both densely populated and home to some major corporations with large amounts of business travel.

      With that in mind, i’m ok with an airport like Manchester including Boston in it’s name as a way to attract customers to an alternative they may not realize is available. The anti-consumer part would only apply if the airlines were advertising it as flights to Boston. A perfect example of that is the new flights by Norwegian Air from Providence Rhode Island and Hartford Connecticut to Europe (Ireland/Scotland). So long as it’s not saying Boston as the destination when booking, i know where i’m going (Once again Providence-Boston i’m ok with)

    Orlando has a fourth airport which is the city airport. I don’t think it has any commercial flights.

    I lived in Cape Canaveral for a couple years and tried, almost every time I went on a trip, to fly out of and in to MLB. It’s quite a bit closer and saves taking the toll road. They were also often on American’s discounted award chart.

    It never once worked. I drove past it a couple times and looked at the Russian jets that were being serviced there, but I never managed to fly in or out of MLB. I don’t think MCO needs to worry too much about the competition.
