Note To Self: Avoid LGA

I got a pretty good fare on Delta to Tampa, flying out of LaGuardia Aiport in Queens. When I fly out of New York, it's almost always out of JFK, and occasionally out of Newark. I can remember flying out of LaGuardia perhaps twice: once to the Bahamas in 1989 and once to South Bend, Indiana maybe 5 or 6 years ago. Of the three New York airports, this is the easiest to get to from Connecticut. But my experience here has not been good:

  • the parking rate in the long-term economy lot is steep: it's $15/day, just like at JFK, but the first two days are double that assessment

  • I had to pay $15 to check one bag! I suppose this is more a problem with Delta than with LGA, but it's the first time I've ever had to do this

  • after checking in at the computer kiosk, I had to wait on some brutal lines to check my bag and then clear security

Even if the flights are more expensive, the convenience of Bradley Airport is looking more and more compelling all the time for domestic travel.
