Quoting UAL747 (Reply 4): Wasn't Carnival Airlines mainly set up to fly pax to and from departing cruise ships? I swear I saw them in Miami several times.
They were. And that's one reason LGA didn't matter so much, because it wasn't for business travel, and for everyone who booked "fly and sail" packages, they were told which airport to go to and saved $hundreds and were happy! But it wasn't a great business for Carnival.
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

I'm looking at one of their route maps right now and it says New York City (JFK & LGA). Did they announce service but never start it? The reason I ask is because I don't ever recall seeing them at LGA.

Carnival had MIA-LAX service at one point. It started with a 737-400, which had to make a fuel stop in ELP westbound quite a few times. We (HP) did the groundhandling for it when it would come thru. Once they got the Airbus we never saw them again.
