La Guardia Airport customer review

LGA is my home airport. All the concourses are nice & short which makes getting through very easy. Security can get a bit clogged up from time to time though due to very little extra space in concourses. All the problems with LGA (e.g. old buildings cramped quarters etc.) are overlooked given the proximity of LGA to Manhattan. Ticketing area is spacious which is nice. Getting to LGA is easy either via cab or the M60. While the M60 is not the quickest way to LGA the $2.00 price is by far the cheapest way of getting there. If you are looking for the back-door way of getting there take the subway to the 74 St/Broadway/Jackson Hts/Roosevelt Ave stop along the 7/E/F/V/R/G lines and then connect to the Q33 bus. This typically is not as crowded as the M60 and may be more convenient depending on where you are coming from. I avoid parking at the airport at any cost -it is so expensive ($30/day). I often park at the private lots for around $15/day and then take their shuttle vans in to the airport.

La Guardia is the closest to Manhattan. So even a taxi from this airport is pretty cheap. You avoid the traffic jams from JFK and EWR. Public transport M-60 works just fine - it gets you to 125th street and you hop on the subway. It is cheap and no wait for check in and security is shorter then JFK and EWR.

Used US Airways from LGA to FLL monthly and what a huge difference from the Delta terminal! US Airways terminal has plenty of room everywhere at check-in separate section for Premier passengers to check-in. Two separate areas to go through security. Plenty of food choices. US Airways Club is wonderful plenty of room for everyone! Arrivals is always a long wait for non-shuttle flight luggage service.

Laguardia is great. It is relatively easy to navigate: short distances from ticketing to the gate even with baggage. My only negative is the lack of open restaurants/cafes on the concourse after 9 p.m. I also agree with Ms. Lloyd that the M60 bus to Manhattan is a perfectly inexpensive way to go. Harlem has undergone a wonderful renaissance making it a neat scenic trip rich with culture (and shopping in Harlem). Save your money and use LGA when you can.

Unlike what M Bolivar says the M60 bus to Manhattan is great for someone not wanting to spend money on a cab from Laguardia. It goes through Harlem yes but what's wrong with Harlem? It was the first time I'd ever been there and I didn't see anything wrong with the area the bus travels through. Perfectly safe. M Bolivar is a racist I guess because the only thing noticeable about Harlem is that it's black. The bus is safe I was even entertained by fellow passengers it was easy to get two huge bags on board and the driver was very helpful with directions on how to get to New Jersey. My boyfriend and I had a great time! Laguardia is the least expensive airport to fly to fare-wise I've learned after much experience. However the airport is not very nice-looking. But who cares as long as the flights are safe and get me to where I'm going? Newark looks a LOT nicer and is a lot newer.

Old Airport without services. Fast baggage claim bad connection to Manhattan only by bus. It costs only 260$ but the bus is simply depressing. Moreover you have to drive through the worst part of Harlem in a 45 minutes ride that stops around 20 times. Finally the bus leaves you in the 114th st and you have to walk a few streets to take the metro downtown in a really dirty station. Better connections needed better services in the terminal required and just fine pre-boarding area. I know it's an old airport but it should have been rebuilt taking into account that a lot of the national and canadian flights stop there.

La Guardia Airport customer review

I have travelled to and from La Guardia through the main terminal several times on Air Canada and American Airlines. I have always thought that terminals A-D were rather shabby. Last weekend I travelled from the US Airways shuttle terminal and what a difference! It is clean bright and well organized. I arrived at 6.25 a.m. for an 8 a.m. shuttle flight to BOS however was immediately changed to the 7.00 a.m. flight and despite being selected for additional screening made it to my gate in plenty of time there was no time however to peruse any of the stores in this terminal. Arriving back was equally easy. I travelled to and from the airport on the M60 bus from the Upper West Side of Manhattan. This bus whilst cheap at $2 each way (coins or Metrocards only) gets very very crowded even though it runs every 10 minutes. The bus is a good option if you have the time and carryon luggage it is a bad option if you have a lot of luggage or are short of time. The bus is public transport it is designed for commuters (its main customers) and those with a small amount of luggage. Use an airport shuttle if you are travelling with suitcases.

I have travelled several times through LaGuardia. It is not as bad as the posters say. On the other hand connections beyond the airport leave much to be desired. The NY planning authorities have not - despite decades of service by the airport - begun to even plan to have a rail transit connection to either Manhattan the area rapid transit or the commuter rail lines. All of this is due to kowtowing to the residents of a nearby neighbourhood. A rail connection would be simple: just add an elevated line above the expressway from an existing elevated transit line about three miles from the airport. Yet bureaucracy and politicians' fear of that neighbourhood (Steinway section of Astoria to anyone out there familiar with Queens neighbourhoods) have prevented taking the logical action! In closing it is possible to go to the toilet after passing through security. People just need to hunt for it.

Avoid at all costs! I recently had the unpleasant experience of transit in LGA. I took the Delta Shuttle which operates out of the marine terminal so they could not check my bags through to my destination. The busses from this remote terminal run very infrequently so 40 or 50 pax were stuck outside waiting in the snow for nearly an hour. One never showed up so a man from car hire took us to our terminals. I had to recheck my bags and go back through security which was the most horrendous mess I have ever seen. The queue was backed up for miles! I thought that I would hopefully be able to catch an earlier flight as my return was not for 3 hours but by the time I go through I was at my gate only 20 minutes before departure. To make matters worse there are no toilets until AFTER security so I had to wait for all that time with out the use of any facilities. I know people in New York (and the United States in general) feel the need for all of this extra security but someday they're going to get sick of being treated like criminals. LGA needs some serious work especially in customer service. Never again will I travel through LGA! They couldn't pay me enough.
