New York's La Guardia Airport is not a safe place for Delta to fly 767's in and out of. Delta should just fly the 757's into La Guardia. The airport has enough problems with seeing to the safety of other aircraft. An aircraft with over 200+ passengers doesn't need to risk landing at La Guardia.

In addition to Delta 767s, I have seen American DC-10s, Eastern A300s and L-1011s and Delta L-1011s at LGA. I've flown on Delta 767s to Cincinnati and an Eastern A300 from Ft. Myers into LGA. I doubt there is much of a safety concern.

The only thing they have to be aware of is the distance of the flight. You can't fly more than 1,250 miles (is that number right?) out of LGA. One of those 767s can easily take you to LAX from there but they are not permitted to make those flights.

LGA is only 8 miles away from Midtown, and it was a 30 min ride this morning there are 7:15 AM. EWR is more suited to New Jersey citizens, and CO has a fortress there, so Delta might not try. Plus, they use the 738 and 757 there. JFK is a 50 minute SUBWAY RIDE (no traffic!) from Midtown, so it is closer to Long Island than Midtown.
