I wonder if these can be sold? Maybe it'd swap with Frontier: Frontier's 2 LGA slot pairs for the 4 UA JFK slot pairs. LGA seems to hold greater value so maye a good ratio is 2:4. This would guarantee also that Frontier doesn't swap out it's LGA slots for EWR slots and UA having to deal with a ULCC in EWR.

UA can also add ORD and IAD into ISP (Long Island) airport. Fares wouldn't be competitive and more like how UA sells high fares on MHT-ORD and PVD-ORD even though Southwest offers much lower fares to MDW, but UA keeps the flights for connections.
