Fly Nonstop from SFO/OAK/SJC to NYC-LaGuardia or DC-National?

Maybe so! Our buddies over at the Cranky Flier tipped us off to this interesting tidbit:  Apparently Sen. John McCain is busy in Washington trying to abolish the silly, outdated “perimeter rules” that forbid airlines from offering non-stop flights to the more convenient New York-LaGuardia or Washington-National from most cities west of the Mississippi. (A few exceptions have slipped through the cracks, such as flights from Denver, Phoenix and Vegas and a handful of Alaska Air flights from LA and Seattle.) The rules were instituted back in the 60’s when the government wanted to promote the use of JFK and Dulles airports. Stay tuned for more on this one. I for one will not miss that LONG ride into DC from Dulles or the traffic choked haul to Manhattan from JFK.
