I was in New York/CT yesterday and while driving south on I-95/295 to the Throgss Neck bridge, I witnessed an AA 767, gear down, on short final for what I am sure was approach to LGA. Can anyone confirm this? Does anyone known if/when AA has brought 767s into LGA before?

I feel like it happens pretty regularly on swaps. ALso, there was a thread not too long ago on 767's at LGA, and someone there posted (if memory serves right) that LGA would be seeing some AA 767s this winter to MIA or FLL.

I work the ramp at LGA and saw the flight taxi by. It took off from rwy 31 and was airborne by the time it reached the B Concourse. The DL M88 that took off after used alot more rwy. I pulled my tug over just in time to get a good close up look. AA, DL and AC send 763's into LGA from time to time. Back in late October when NYC got a few inches of snow there was an AC and DL in line for take off from rwy 4. Reminded me of the good ole days.

Why is there a speed restriction for B-764 to 10 knots on twy's DD,Z,B AND AA? I also was under the impression that there is a weight restriction on the ends of Runways 13 and 22 due to over-the-water concrete platforms. Am I wrong in this assumption?
767s were common at LGA during their early years of service. The July 1983 OAG (only 10 months after the 767-200 went into service) shows 21 daily 762 departures from LGA (8 UA, 7 AA, 5 DL, 1 TW). Also 6 DC-10s (AA), 5 L-1011s (2 DL, 2 TW, 1 EA), and 20 A300s (EA), for a total of 52 daily widebodies..
Even a decade earlier there were quite a few DC-10s and L-1011s at LGA. In April 1974 there were 8 daily DC-10 departures (4 AA and 4 National) and 8 daily L-1011s (5 EA and 3 DL).
