I find it a bit hard to understand AA's plans at LGA. In addition to MSY, there's the new RJ shuttle service to BOS and DCA, and they've started an ad campaign for their LGA-MDW service. By all accounts, air travel in and out of New York airports remains depressed (thanks Osama); as an example of that, Sunday's Times had an article on how cruise-ship lines have had to increase the number of sailings out of Manhattan's Passenger Ship Terminal because New Yorkers are too frightened to fly to Florida to catch their ships. So AA is either clueless, or very optimistic, or knows something no one else does.

Weeeeellllllllll well well... mmmmmm...mm...mm... mmm...mm..mm...
H.Simpson, American Airlines is my loved one and the Super 80 and ERJ are the two aircraft I prefer to fly on, in their whole system including American Eagle. I enjoy a lot flying on those two because they are very quiet at take off and they rise quickly! I'm very happy about American's plans in LGA because they are becoming very strong there (they have a whole concourse just for themselves) and the majority of their fllights are either Super 80's and Embraer Jets (I flew on one from LGA to DTW earlier this year).
You can expect to see a lot of AA MD-80's for at least the rest of the decade, it won't be before early next decade that they get rid of those. But it's true, they also have 757's which are young and brand new 737-800's, those will sure be around till at least end of next decade! BTW, H.Simpson, if you take a flight from LGA to DFW or MIA, chances are you are on a 757.
