Does DL Operate Nonstop LGA-SLC?

I was under the impression that there was a perimeter around LGA for nonstop service, and SLC was too far (but DEN wasn't). But for some reason I started to notice nonstop service on Saturdays only starting I think in February.

Have the rules changed? When is the first flight? Is this temporary or newly available for Saturdays only?

The perimeter rule is not in force on Saturdays. All other days, the perimeter rule applies.

The only one I can find is an A-319 that goes LGA-MEM-SLC, thereby adhering to the perimiter rule.


This flight also operates during the week.

There is no perimeter rule on Saturdays. There are plenty of routes operating beyond perimeter on Saturdays, including American to Vail, Delta to Salt Lake City and Continental to Aruba.

According to DL's desktop timetable application, a single 757 flight operates under the following schedule (using February 13th as an example)

DL2009 LGA 07:00 --> SLC 10:29
DL1668 SLC 13:40 --> LGA 20:06

Interesting, I did not know this.

Could/Would AS consider running a dual NYC operation like what they did with IAD/DCA for a while. Perhaps something like 2x daily SEA-EWR and Saturday-only service to LGA?

No, not at all. The operating costs for one station would be significant, and on Saturdays - when there is little business travel to speak - there is no fare premium to extrapolate by serving LGA.

Airlines - including ATA, Delta and US Airways - have tried LGA-LAX/LAS/SFO on Saturdays and failed.

I doubt it. That I know of, AS does not have a station in the lower 48 which it serves on an aggregate of less than daily.

But I also did not think AS would get into the California-Hawai'i business -- my how wrong I was! Big grin

In fact, it does. From the Star Alliance Desktop Application and using December 12 as an example:

CO1851 LGA 07:55 --> AUA 13:29 B738
CO1852 AUA 14:25 --> LGA 18:26 B738

I think that Saturday-only LGA-AUA flight has been around for quite a while. AUA is one of the rare points (other than Canada) with U.S. immigration pre-clearance. If not, I don't think that flight could operate AUA-LGA as LGA isn't equipped to handle inbound international airline flights that aren't pre-cleared. I think their customs/immigration facility only handles small aircraft and business jets etc., at least that used to be the case.

BDA/NAS/FPO are the other island points with U.S. pre-clearance. NW/DL operate LGA-NAS daily and there used to be LGA-BDA service (forget who operated that, possibly DL, but it seems to have been dropped).

American, Delta, Northwest and US Airways have all operated the route within the past five years, and Spirit announced the route and started taking bookings, but never started. This summer, NW/DL does plan to fly the route with an A320.

Using Delta.com, I was unable to find those flights for Feb. 13th or any other day. The only one I found was the flight that I mentioned, operated by NW.

I found it on Delta.com with no problem. I used Feb20 for LGA-SLC and Feb27 for SLC-LGA....quoted price was only $400 which isn't too bad.

Maybe the schedule changed between Feb 13th and the 20th. I used the 13th to keep it consistent with what he had mentioned.

Weird, indeed. I am unable to come up with this flight on Delta.com, but I can get it on the employee site, Travelnet.
