Then don't fly from New York. Any airline enthusiast should know that delays happen, particularly in the Northeast, and you can't predict when they will happen. Also, just because you don't go right from the gate to the runway doesn't mean that you're "delayed". More often than not, LGA
flights have built into their schedule a big hunk of taxi/sitting time.

I was just wondering why are flights to destinations over 1500 miles allowed only on Saturdays, and do any airlines operate Saturday only flights from LGA to the West
There are lots of threads on this, and it's easy to look up on Google, too. But the bottom line is that because traffic at LGA
is so much lower on Saturday, there is no need for the restriction. ATA did a LGA
flight for a while, with some great loads and some not-so-great loads. That stopped a while ago. Although your question was about the West, I should also say that USAirways often runs/ran trips to places like Aruba (about 2000 miles) on Sat-only as well.
