As can be seen, the relationship of actual fares to the SIFL fare benchmark is very different at the three Washington area airports. Actual fares are 65% of SIFL at BWI, 77% at IAD and 101% at DCA. The comparable statistics for the NYC airports are summarized in the following table.

The results show that actual fares are 71% of SIFL at EWR, 57% of SIFL at JFK, and 82% of SIFL at LGA. Delta Air Lines is the largest carrier with 30% of traffic and a weighted average fare of 89% of SIFL. We noted that if Delta is excluded from LGA figures the airport percent of SIFL would decline to 79% of SIFL.
