What's going to happen to the old tower on top of AA's Concourse D? Is that what's getting replace? If so, I think AA should sink a few mil into completely redoing Concourse D and turn the old tower into the new Admirals Club. Wishful thinking, I know.
new tower to include a Category II Instrument Approach landing system, new tower to be built near the parking garage at the airport
Hopefully this can end or at least substantially reduce the many countless delay times that LGA seams to be barraged with each day. LGA is so convenient to get to mid-town Manhattan when compared to EWR or JFK.

Tower improvement is important ant great - but why doesn't LGA fix its many other problems first!? The airport is dirty and I ALWAYS encounter lengthy delays when arriving or departing the airport. Also, LGA could definitely use a few escalators in the terminals - it makes no sense that passengers need to drag bags down stairs when going down to baggage claim.
Look forward to the new tower going up in a few years - should look nicer than the old one..

WEll hopefully this will be the start of a whole new redevelopment project at LGA, esp. the terminal. The CTA needs replacing and if somehow they could connect the US Air and Delta/NW terminals in one seemless terminal that wold be a great benefit. Lastly if they could relocate the runways (perhaps build up landfill in the bay and relocate them there, that would allow for increased traffic and simultaneous take off and landing.
They want to put a CATII control panel in. It's the typical FAA bullshit. "This will reduce delays", no it won't.. Nothing will reduce delays in New York. Atleast with getting rid of the old tower, the ceiling wont be falling down. That thing is basically built of mold.
