Airlines

AirlinePhoneCMH-JFK/LGA direct?CMH-PHL direct?Fly to Islip?Comments
American Airlines   NO     .
America West Airlines 1-800-235-9292 YES YES   Has a very convenient schedule -- too bad they never keep to it!!!
This is the WORST airline in the business -- do NOT fly them
Continental Airlines 1-800-525-0280 NO   YES Good service especially to Islip (thru Cleveland)
But watch out for when they code-share with AmWest. Then it is horrible.
Delta Airlines 1-800-221-1212 NO   YES Almost useless website. Infinite phone on-hold times which is made worse by the fact that they have talking messages all the time, instead of music, so you can't zone it out.
Air Jamaica   NO      
Midway Airlines   NO NO    
Northwest Airlines 1-800-225-2525 NO   YES  
Southwest Airlines 1-800-435-9792 NO NO YES Best fares-- especially if booking at last moment
Does not fly to PHL at all
TWA         Does not fly between CMH and PHL
United Airlines 1-800-241-6522 NO   YES
