Delta 767-400 @ LGA

Thu May 08, 2003 1:18 am

It is now May, and Delta has started flying their 767-400s into New York's La Guardia Airport, which is now the largest plane operating in and out of it.

I was wondering if anyone can help me get schedules of this aircraft. I am interested in knowing where it goes, where it comes from, and the times for its departures and arrivals on weekdays and weekends.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I would have thought that you, the OCD Flighttracker, would have spotted it on those sites already.

Nevertheless, here is the timetable:

ATL-LGA DL973 2:30p-4:45p x6
LGA-ATL DL581 6:00p-8:35p x6

Huh? What's an OCD Flighttracker?

Thank you much. I think I'll go check it out today.  Smile

And someone here questioned the length of their runway over at LGA.
Crazy.

It is now May, and Delta has started flying their 767-400s into New York's La Guardia Airport, which is now the largest plane operating in and out of it.

Actually, when they first bought the plane... LaGuardia, Honolulu, and McCoy were the three airports where they advertised they'd concentrate them on... mostly as L10 replacements.

Not the first time Delta has flown the 764 to LGA. One rotation from LGA to FLL was operated by 767-400 a couple of years ago. The 767-400 is viewed as an L1011 replacement for Delta. The carrier used to fly several L10's into LGA daily from ATL and Florida.

I must admit that i would have never flown an L-10 or 764 into LGA... it feels like your about to drown! that is really pushing it!

Flairport:

All aircraft are weight restricted at LGA, so it's not like you were taking off on a full L1011, rather a fairly empty one.
I flew the L10 from LGA to ATL bout 6 years ago, and although you used up a lot of the runway, you really didn't use much more than the 763's and even M80's that fly out of there now, especially the heavier M80's....

I flew on a Eastern L1011 from LGA to MIA back in '89 in a blizzard, the flight was delayed untill about 11:30PM. Take off was fun!

Also DC-10s were quite common at LGA, AA, CO, UAL, NWA have all operated DC-10s out of LGA.

Can't wait to go! I still have one month to wait for me to go! I wish they had AA's DC-10's there but times change and the 767-400 is the talk of the airport!

Let me clarify:

I know that DL used to fly 764s into LGA, but that service stopped, I think last summer or the one before it, and they just picked it up again this month. I was excited to know that it was coming in.

I finally got the chance to see it yesterday. While the plane pushed back a little late, it came out and as I saw it from the side, I realized how much bigger it is than the 762s.

It is 42 feet longer than the 762. The wingspan on a 764 is wider than LGA's runways by twenty feet as well.

Usually, DL parks their 767s on the north side of the terminal, and I was surpirsed to see it parked on the south side. of it. I didn't think it would even fit past all the MD-80s and Comair CRJs that they had parked all over the south side.

I didn't get to see it depart, thoguh, as I had to leave, but I wonder how much of the runway it took up to liftoff.

Its great that the DL 764 is getting so much attention, as mentioned above, EA, DL and TWA flew L1011s into LGA; AA, UA, NA all flew DC10s into LGA (could NW operate the DC10-40 into LGA?); EA operated A300s into LGA, including an A300 on the LGA-BOS shuttle for a year or two in the early 1980s; and DL has been a long time operator of 762s and 763s into close in LGA.

National, during the busy NYC-Florida winter season, would have many DC10 departures out of LGA, several to MIA, FLL, PBI and MCO.

Now, the 757 rules LGA.

No, I would saw the 737 rules LGA. DL and their Shuttle flies that all goddamn day, in addition to United, Us Airways, Continental and AA. That's five airlines as opposed to the the four that fly 757s out of LGA (United, DL, AA, ATA).

Yes, I saw the other day a Delta 767-400 in LGA (I was on an American Super 80 bound for FLL). I could tell it was a 400 as opposed to a 300 because it had the rounded windows like the 777 has, older 767's have windows that are more rectangular. It has indeed 777 style interiors.

Bigphilnyc, you are saying that the 737 is the aircraft seen the most at LGA because Delta flies them out of there at least twice every hour, all DL Shuttle flights are 737's, that is true. But don't forget the Super 80 of American. I would not hesitate to say that one also rules LGA. American flies them out of LGA a lot in one day: all flights to ORD(except maybe 1, out of 18, that is a 757) are Super 80's, so are all four flights to FLL, so are other flights to places such as MIA, DFW, MSY, MCI,...you name it. If you look at AA's terminal and maintenance center in LGA, there are at least three MD-80's parked there at any time. American is very strong in New York City.

Yes, I remember American used to fly DC-10's there to/from DFW back in 1989, and they had one flight DFW-LGA on a 767-200 in the early 90's. I remember seeing TWA L-1011's as well.

Until the mid 90's, the 727 was the aircraft seen the most at LGA.

Looking at some quick numbers for today:

B737 Departures:
Delta: 26
Continental: 11
United: 7
US Airways: 8

MD-80 Departures:
American: 50
Delta: 11
Spirit: About 6 (Just using a conservative estimate based on Spirit's 11-12 daily departures)
Midwest Express: 3

I'm sure I missed something along the lines and I'm doubly sure somebody will violently attack me for it.

I watched the DL B764 arrived rwy 4 from FLL a couple of years ago and it stopped on the dime!

I also watched it depart about 2 hours later and viewing from rwy 4, it looks way oversized for LGA.

American 767,

You're absolutely right about the MD-80s, especially with American.

I've been at LGA looking at the termianl packed with Super 80s, and within an hour, they are all gone, having often taken off one right after the other. There's always one rush of them about mid-morning if my memory serves me correctly.

It's weird seeing their one termianl packed with a rear-engined aircraft at every gate (MD-80s and F100s).
