I agree with the letter saying why Long Island MacArthur Airport's business is declining ["Free advice for MacArthur Airport," April 30].

I would like to add one more item to the writer's list: The prices are to high. I recently tried to book a round trip for my wife and me to Chicago on Southwest, the only major airline at MacArthur Airport. Instead, we will be flying out of LaGuardia Airport and will save more than $550. On top of that, they're non-stop flights both ways.
