Interesting new taxiway note was added to the Jeppesen LGA airport diagram dated 19th May 2006..."B747-400 aircraft restricted to 10 knot taxi speed on all taxiways"...; looking forward seeing my first Jumbo there very soon...

Can a 744 even land at LGA andif it could I dont think there are any gates that can handle it


The only valid opinions are those based in facts

LGA has a max wingspan limit of 175ft. The 764 just squeaks in at 170ft (a requirement from DL, if I'm not mistaken). The only way a 747 will be landing at LGA is if they turn the airport into a museum.

Aside from the wingspan problem, from what I know, the piers on which parts of the runways are build couldn't handle the weight of a 744 anyway.

Landing a 744 there (fairly empty/light) isn't the problem...how would you get it back OUT!?

The same way you got it in - empty and light.

I couldn't tell you where I saw it, but it has been corroborated on here numerous times, so I think it's pretty accurate.

I'm sure the info should be found somewhere on LGA's homepage, though as we all know, the PANYNJ pages are not necessarily the easiest pages to search through.
Another fact is that Boeing offered the 772 with the folding wing option specifically with LGA in mind and airlines like DL or AA, who used their trijet widebodies to LGA on a regular basis, though no airline ever chose that option, simply because the 772 was still too much aircraft. LGA-ATL on a 772? Not really realistic, is it?
