I miss White Plains (HPN)

Will any other carrier pick this up now, or were slots already divvied?

Seems like no one else goes direct to Florida now except jetBlue who has notorious high ticket prices from HPN.

I miss AirTran at HPN more for being able to travel beyond Florida at reasonable prices, although I did use them for flights to Fla. from time to time.

I haven't kept up with who (if anyone) is currently using the gate times abandoned by FL.

Another casualty of the Southwest acquisition. I grew up in Connecticut right down the road from HPN, and LGA/JFK/EWR were always a hassle to get to (especially the latter two).

I never flew out of HPN but picked up my mother there in 2010--I had to park on the grass outside the garage because it was so full! (I drove up from Virginia and she flew in from ATL on AirTran). I wonder if AirTran's departure has improved the parking situation there nowadays.
