    Exactly. Add to the misery those employed at PHL, a fair amount who are downright MISERABLE. They probably have a good reason to be but there is basically no effort given to be friendly or helpful. The misery just sweeps over you landing at PHL as you step foot in the terminal. It's like a dark cloud hangs over the place.

    I have a 7 AM flight on a Friday in February out of LGA. Do I get out of there before 10 AM?

    The discussion is about the operation though, not weather

    Fair enough.
    Where does LGA rank among delays and departure time? The majority of the problems with the airport lie within the terminal itself as opposed to actually being on the plane and taking off (or landing). It doesnt look like theyll be touching the runways in the renovation either.

    Yea I saw that as well. I'm surprised they don't have runway extension plans since LGAs runways rank as one of the shortest for commercial liners (7,000 FT at LGA, avg. is 10,000 FT at most airports). Even veteran pilots complain about landing there and how treacherous it can be, especially during rain and snow storms. The technology and space is there that they can extend those runways out an additional 2 to 3 thousand feet over the water

    Laguardia is probably my least favorite place to land in the country. Even more than Denver. I hate it more than being in the actual airport
