JFK is a base. LGA is a co-base, and you get refunded transpo for any LGA trips. If you have a trip start/end in EWR or HPN, you get 1 hour of DH/LIMO pay with transpo provided to/from JFK.

Iíve had a brand new S550, Escalades, etc. from HPN. Standard limo from HPN (in my experience) was a Tahoe SUV or Cadillac car if it was just 2 of us. Never had anything bad from HPN. Maybe I just got lucky. The LGA-JFK ďlimosĒ seemed to be the sketchy ones in my experience

Same here. Only time Iíve ever gotten a yellow cab limo I declined it. Not going to go
In something that smells like a strip club on a Sunday morning.

Iíve declined two different Uberís now.

One was absolutely unacceptable car and the other was a driver that didnít match the uber pic.

Yes, pilots are required to clean the cabin when non-reving out of all 4 NYC airports.






Too much? :)

JFK is the main base because it has a potato farm. LGA does not.

When will the company add the requirement to volunteer potato harvesting to keep your dental benefits?

Hey man, there is no better use for real estate at JFK than potato farming.

Jet fuel exhaust + potatoes = caring.

In fact, the potato farm is our most valuable resource.

potatoes = profit

Potatoes + "culture" + pilots cleaning = bringing humanity back to air travel.

Just passing through the neighborhood but the reference to the potato farm is too much to ignore. What in the world is that about?

I love how they talk about green space at the airport, which would be great if the customers actually had access to it.
