Is Delta New York’s Biggest Airline?

The WSJ (reg required, sorry) takes a look at Delta’s claims that it is "New York’s largest airline" "America’s largest airline" and/or "becoming the second-largest carrier to Latin America."  As you’ve probably guessed by now, by nearly all measures all 3 of those claims are nonsense (for New York, they exclude Newark because it’s not in New York, which would be like saying Detroit and Cincinnati don’t have airports because their airports aren’t in those cities).  They’re also a distant 3rd in flights to Latin America, behind American and Continental.  Truth in advertising, baby!
