Location of De-Icing Stands at LGA

Fri Dec 22, 2017 3:01 pm

So I'm SUPPOSED to go visit my sister on Friday, December 29th. At this point, while obviously subject to change, it's supposed to be snowing in the NYC area that day with a total of about 6-10 inches from what I see right now (3-5 during the day, 3-5 at night). I have a 6 PM flight out of LGA to BNA via ATL. Now, it's been a very, very, very long time since I've flown out of LGA during winter weather. 1999 was actually the last time (I was 8 1/2 years old and also stuck in the middle row of a Boeing 767). So obviously I can't for the life of me remember where the de-icing stands are at LGA. And now with the construction, it's probably in a different spot than it was. Does anyone know where they are? I'm inclined to think just after the AA gates at the CTB, but could be wrong.

evank516, it depends on the particular airline and what arrangement they have established with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Some airlines deice just off the gate at one of the many ramp spots, including at the MAT; however, there is also a de-ice area, known as the Echo pad, along Taxiway DD, just north of Taxiway E. I think the Echo pad has three spots. The aircraft generally face southeast if I remember correctly.
