I agree with the letter about airfares at Long Island MacArthur Airport ["Airport's woes found in prices," May 5]. My wife and I fly from West Palm Beach in south Florida to Long Island frequently. We have one family member who can pick us up at LaGuardia Airport and another who can pick us up at MacArthur. Usually, we wind up going to LaGuardia because the flights are less expensive -- sometimes considerably less -- and we have more nonstop flights to choose from.
