Quoting ScottB (Reply 3):
If I remember right, the ability to operate out of LGA was one of the requirements American gave Douglas for the DC-10.
The ability to use LGA
was also a requirement for the L-1011.
767s were common at LGA
during their early years of service. The July 1983 OAG (only 10 months after the 767-200 went into service) shows 21 daily 762 departures from LGA
, 7 AA
, 5 DL
, 1 TW
). Also 6 DC-10s (AA), 5 L-1011s (2 DL
, 2 TW
, 1 EA
), and 20 A300s (EA), for a total of 52 daily widebodies..
Even a decade earlier there were quite a few DC-10s and L-1011s at LGA
. In April 1974 there were 8 daily DC-10 departures (4 AA
and 4 National) and 8 daily L-1011s (5 EA
and 3 DL
