Was There A Flight B/w LGA And JFK At One Point?

Thu Sep 06, 2001 6:15 am

I read the following in another post. Can someone comment on who operated it? Thanks.

"For a while there was a shuttle between JFK and LGA operated by BAe146. Scheduled flying time was 6 minutes, gate to gate was 30 minutes, but they couldn`t maintain that as they never made it within 30 minutes. The o/w ticket was $ 20 plus tax. "

NO, there is no flight between LGA-JFK now. May be there's one back earlier. However, there is cargo flight between JFK-EWR:

According to the PA of NY & NJ,

Except Depart Arrive Flight # Type

X17 5:00a JFK 5:30a EWR QJ 01 PAG(Piper!)
2345 only 7:20a EWR 7:50a JFK ER941 72F

by the way, according to what u said, it's the same price whether you go by bus(limo) or plane, $20 + tax.

I Wondered That Too

If it really happened I guess it would have been Business Express-- dunno who else operated 146s locally (or Avros or whatever they were). The 6-minute flight time sounds unlikely, of course. As does the whole story.

It sounds pretty weird so I was just looking for some clarification. Thanks.

Actually, USExp had a flight from EWR to LGA, but with a stop in Albany, New York. This was operated with a B1900, and I am not sure if this service still exists.
