AA Begins MSY-LGA Service Today

Wed Oct 02, 2002 12:45 am

Just a quick FYI: American begins their MSY-LGA service today. LGA-MSY is flight 1789 arriving at 1:30PM, MSY-LGA is flight 1800 departing at 2:33PM. Flights are operated with MD-80's.

No cargo service, they're pulling out of MSY 10/1. Too bad, good seafood route.

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.

They are clueless PROSA.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

anyway I'm getting sick of AA's Md-80s and ERJs. When are they going to add more damn 737s or 757s?

H. Simpson,

AA has tons of MD80s. More than any 737 or 757. You can expect to see an MD80 before you see a 737.

This is great for AA but bad for AA mileage runners because that would probably mean that MSY-DFW-LGA flights will be less competitively priced.

As an example, MSY-LGA is a total of 1,183 credited flight miles, for a total of 2,366 miles.

On the other hand, MSY-DFW-LGA is a total of 1387, for a total of 3,674.

That's a difference of 1,308 miles. Not a lot but it does make a difference.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Weeeeellllllllll well well... Smile mmmmmm...mm...mm...  Smile  Smile  Smile 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.
