  1. So let me get this straight. They think that Long Islanders will want to either fly to Iceland on an airline called “WOW” or connect there on the way to mainland Europe? So either there are lots of us looking to go to this subarctic nation voluntarily or we don’t realize that plenty of direct flights to mainland Europe are available from JFK, which is less than one hour away. Let me know how this business idea works out.

  2. The headline about Long Island cheap Euro flights is a little misleading; implying that they’re actually in the future as opposed to the airport asking the carrier to consider flying from their airport.

  4. Teddy, Southwest flies to Long Island, making European connections there very feasible, especially for those looking for inexpensive fares. And travel to Iceland has doubled since 2010; lots of people (like me, next summer) are planning travel to the island nation. You may not be aware of this, but not everyone prefers long, direct flights—some people (especially when traveling coach) do prefer to break up their flights and spend a few hours relaxing in the Blue Lagoon.
