There recetly was a three page story in Newsday about flying late out of LGA. ANd how its the worst airport in the area. Are there times when it;s good to fly? Better yet, what are the worse times to fly? Please?

Also, With regards to the site, I also post to a railroad .net site where you have the option of seeing the replies to your posting emailed directly to you. Is that possible with this site? I just often wondered.

Thanks for any info about LGA.

Hello,
My brother flies in and out of LGA all the time, and it's nothing but problems. The only time he doesn't have trouble is flying in and out in the VERY early morning. We've had no problems that way. Good luck, you're gonna need it!

Unless you *have* to go there, don't. The time you're supposed to save by being close to Manhattan will probably be eaten away by delays. BTW, all New York airports are quite chaotic.

As for wanting to read replies by mail... I don't know why you would because you'll get like 30 mails in one day.

On a (proud) sidenote, NWA leads all US major airlines that operate out of LaGuardia (figures released in November) operating on-time from LGA at a 70% clip.

Go Red Tails!

LGA and all New York airports will be a mess until airlines figure out that ATC can only handle so many planes at a time. In a perfect world, if there was cooperation among airlines in regard to scheduling, it would be much easier for everyone to get where they are going on time. But then passengers would be inconvenienced by having to alter plans away from rush hour times and the system would ultimately break down, so that plan would fail nonetheless. Just don't fly to NY is the best solution.

US antitrust laws make schedule coordination between airlines illegal I believe. Also, don't for one minute think that the airlines aren't perfectly aware of the ATC situation in the NYC area. But, since the US government won't permit them to all sit down and sort things out, all they can do is try to hold on to or increse their market share. One way to change this is for the 'GOV' to tell everyone to reduce their flights by xx% simultaneously. But I don't think the 'GOV' is going to do that anytime soon.


Working very hard to Fly Right....
