Working in LGA quite often, I noticed awhile ago that only ONE airline continues to use its widebody aircraft at this particular airport: Delta. It uses a lot of B767s, and formerly a lot of L10lls. ...Why only Delta?
(And no, this isn't intended to bash that airline).
I remember in the early '90s, Air Canada used a 767 for a brief time. American tried to use a couple of DC10s to/from DFW, also very briefly. But now, and for awhile, it's only Delta.
So why would the likes of CO, NW, TWA, UA, and AA seem to avoid using their widebodies @ LGA? (At least AA, TW, and UA could use their 767-200s as they are shorter. I actually wouldn't really expect CO to use their DC10s because they would probably wanna deploy those next door at EWR.
I wouldn't figure lack of gate space for AA, CO, or TW because their concourses are located at the ENDS of the Main terminal which provide a lot of room for any widebody smaller than a 747. (UA, however, might have a problem accommodating anything bigger than a 757 at its gates because that airline occupies the middle concourse or "finger" in the main terminal which has limited parking room.
Just curious about this. So does anyone in here know?
