One reason LGA
may be on CO
's international route map is their LGA
non-stop service which offers numerous connecting possibilities from IAH
to Mexico, Central America and South America. It may even be that some LGA
flights continue on to destinations in these regions, which would mean CO
has same-plane, one-stop international service, which would seem especially to warrant the inclusion of LGA
on their international route map.
Having been a timetable junkie for many years, I cannot find a single instance of non-stop international service from LGA
, except for a relatively short-lived non-stop service to Bermuda (in addition to service from EWR
) which was terminated (moved to EWR
) by Sept. 1995. Somewhere in the gaps between my timetables, I may have missed a short-lived takeover by CO
of some of Eastern's former international routes from LGA
to points in Canada, and/or the Bahamas and Caribbean.
After the completion of Idlewild (IDL -- now JFK
) shortly after World War II
, all longhaul international/intercontinental flights that served LGA
in the immediate post WWII
years were moved to IDL.
