On my cab ride to LGA yesterday I'm almost sure I spotted 2 DL 767s on approach in the clouds over Queens. The visibility was not good so I may be wrong, but I saw two of them...

Was I daydreaming? or are 767s operated at LGA? what other companies than DL ? since how long?
enough runway lenght? did they extend them ?

Thanks
Steinway

Yes 767's do (or at least did!) operate into LGA. Take a look at photo ID#136122, this is a TWA 767 picture that I took back in 1983. UA flew 762's also. DL operated L1011's into LGA & American DC10-10's, also Eastern flew in A300's.

I am sure if you type "La Guardia" in the main search menu you will see many more.

Hope this helps.

One of the 767s operates a CVG-LGA route.

The 767-400 is slated to begin LGA operations later this year for DL. EA used to fly L-1011's in there as well as TWA.

YES. Most definatly DL does operate 767's into LGA, I think from ATL mostly.

I was on the CVG-LGA 767-332 flight last July. It was a weekend, so the flight was empty (maybe 100 pax).

In looking at the schedule, I think that DL goes about 50/50 to CVG and ATL. Usually, when a plane comes in from CVG, it goes out to ATL (as the one I was on did), and if it comes from ATL, it goes out to CVG.

Yes the 767 has been using LGA since 1981 when the type first came into service.
DL also flies it PBI (West Palm Beach, Florida) to LGA twice daily.
In fact, the aircraft rotation on this particular daily service originates in Cincinatti as DL539 dep.8:55am into PBI at 11:16am
then it becomes DL702 dep.PBI at 12:20pm arr. LGA at 3:07pm.
Then it becomes DL181 dep.LGA at 4:20pm arr.PBI at 7:16pm
Then it becomes DL530 dep.PBI at 8:10pm arr.LGA at 10:56pm.
It then spends the night in LGA, but I don't know for sure what it does the next morning. Probably ATL or CVG. And as I mentioned, this happens every day!
Happy flying! OA

We definately operate 767's and 763's out of LGA... up until a few years ago, we were also big with the L1011's out of LGA as well. This quarter we operate 767's/763's to and from the following cities:

Atlanta, GA
Cincinnati, OH
Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood, FL
West Palm beach, FL

Just last night I was on a DL 763 flight to FLL from LGA. It was the 8:55pm flight, and there was nobody on it. I would say out of the 224 possible economy seats, 25 were taken. The group I was traveling with, 15 people, accounted for the majority of the pax on the flight. It was Heaven in a long metal tube.

The runways at LGA have been 7000 ft since 1966. More surprising is the TWA 767 nonstop to St Louis out of Kahului, another 7000 ft runway.

AA also operated a large aircraft into LGA, the DC10.... DL even has the 764 in there on occasion.

The 767, DC-10, and L-1011 all can operate at LGA because they were designed to do so. The airlines interested in those planes wanted to be able to operate them in and out of LaGuardia, so the respective manufacturers had to design that sort of capability into the planes.

The 767 has the best field performance of any Widebody and can carry awesome loads out of that 7000 ft runway. All the other's had strict limitations on payload out of there.


Treat others as you expect to be treated!

I fly the PBI - LGA route more than 5 times a year. They alternate this route between a 763 and a 752.
