    The New York Rangers are tied with the New Jersey Devils in the Eastern Conference Finals series of the National Hockey League at one game apiece, with Game 3 scheduled for Saturday at the Prudential Center in Newark.

    Wait a minute — what in the world does this have to do with milepoint.com and travel in general?!?

    Well, if you are one of the lucky people who is already holding a ticket for Game 3 and you registered by 5:00 yesterday afternoon, you and a guest will be flying on a complimentary 17-minute charter flight from Fiorello LaGuardia Airport in New York to Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey on Delta Air Lines tomorrow — and you get to return to LaGuardia Airport in New York after the game.

    The flight includes the following:
    • Complimentary seats on this special charter flight, departing at 10:00 in the morning from the Marine Air Terminal
    • New York Rangers alumni Ron Duguay and Rod Gilbert will be aboard
    • New York Rangers gifts and prizes
    • Free ground transportation from Newark Airport to the Prudential Center, and return to New York after the game
    • The chance for a Lucky Seat to win a free road trip for two to a New York Rangers away game during the 2012-2013 season
    Seating was first-come, first serve and limited. I do not think that any of the passengers will earn miles on this free flight.

    I am not sure of what aircraft Delta Air Lines will be using for the flight, nor do I know the reasons behind this novel promotion — perhaps it is a “re-positioning flight” that may as well be filled with passengers while simultaneously garnering publicity?
