I don't have a problem with a NY promo or any type...Im just saying that to go through all of extra stuff that comes along with flying is a bit much for me. :)

I would just rather drive in since it's faster.

Are you serious? You REALLY think this is actually about transportation to a game? No, it is about adding to the experience of going to the game and having some fun. A plane filled with Rangers fans taking a flight to a road game. Transportation wise it is not "worth it" for ANYONE. Drive to Laguardia (or train/cab) get their 1-2 hours early, stand on line, then the same thing on the way back. Some people really amaze me. Oh, and if you are from LI, you are likely driving. LIRR on the weekends can be very annoying as it is a reduced schedule.



Obviously it's not meant to make their trip a little easier. It's a promotion by Delta, I know that. I would just imagine that the Rangers fan from Rockland County or Central/Eastern L.I. that is one of the winners would have to wake up at 8am, leave the house by 9am, to be lucky and maybe get to LaGuardia at 10:30-11 with no traffic. Have fun waiting on the security line; school's out and an absurd amount of college graduates are about to go to on vacation this weekend.

Winning this contest is a humongous downgrade from being able to go to the game on your own time and enjoy some pre-game beers around The Rock. The weather's gonna be beautiful, the bars are great, and everyone's gonna be around the arena having a great time while a bunch of "lucky" Rangers fans are flying into Newark airport. It's just a dumb idea, sorry you disagree.

I'm sure Delta have probably wanted this or planned for this to happen on a weekend game, but you have to imagine they're cursing out the fact that the game's at 1pm, not 3 or 7:30pm, etc...

Finally a reason to root for Al-Qaeda!



Too far, man, too far :huh:

Shortest flight I ever took in my life was a connecting flight from Philly to LaGuardia (had flown from San Diego to Philly direct). We took off, and immediately descended lol. I think the whole flight lasted 20 minutes.


I took that same flight.. was one of those terrible pond hopping planes.. we went up they gave the take off speach, 2 mins later we started descending and they gave the landing speach

The crazy thing is we took the same plane to NY that we flew on from San Diego. It was like a 757 or someting like that, a huge jet. It was weird to fly such a short distance on a plane like that.

Too far, man, too far :huh:

again, you are completely off. Anyone who enters knows how their schedule will change. Not going to have traffic to Laguardia on a saturday morning and again, it is about the experience. Something different. Do yourself a favor. Check your wallet. Do you have any cash on you? If so, go buy a clue.

I definitely hope this plane gets the JetBlue 9 hour treatment on the Tarmac.

Rag friend of mine was in on this. I was so hoping they'd lose just to rub it in her face. Oh well.

They just did a joke on this on SNL Weekend Update. Punchline, "it's a pretty cheap flight because there's a two-hour layover in Denver".

I'm curious now, is this the first time the NJ Devils have been mentioned by name on SNL?
