How Bad Is It At LGA? People Are Leaving Their Cars & Walking To The Airport

LaGuardia Airport is a hot mess. It hosted over 30 million travelers in 2018, ranking it the 21st busiest airport in the country. Unfortunately, it also ranked as the 14th worst airport in the world, and those 30 million people in 2018 were met with an old and outdated airport that really couldn’t handle the load of people. Terminal A was built in 1939, Terminal B in 1964, Terminal D in 1983 and Terminal C (yes, in that order) in 1992. And that was the last time any sort of major upgrade or expansion was done.

So in 2016, Gov. Andrew Cuomo unveiled plans to rebuild the airport, with an approximate $8 billion renovation. Here are before and after photos of the airport, via Gov. Cuomo’s web presence:

The rehab began in 2016 and the reno and development are scheduled to be completed in 2022. But meanwhile, it’s currently causing some bad headaches for passengers,

Flying JetBlue From NYC? No More Lounge Access For You

One of things that made flying to/from New York on JetBlue so nice was if you had an American Express Platinum card, you had access to an airport lounge regardless of whether you flew out of JFK, LaGuardia or Newark airport.

Here’s a breakdown of what happened:

Here’s How You Can Get Into Airport Lounges When Flying JetBlue from New York to Orlando

One of the big perks of being a frequent flyer with one of the “big three” U.S. airlines (American, Delta and United) is access to their airport lounges. These spaces are a quite less crowded place to wait for your flight compared to the loud chaos that usually is the norm near the gates. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to charge your electronics, snack on some cookies or veggies and even treat yourself to something from the bar. Even if the airlines have started to charge for the better snacks and drinks, it’s still better than nothing.

You’d think if you’re on your way to a vacation at Disney World or Universal Studios in Orlando from the New York/New Jersey area and decide to take JetBlue that you’d be out of luck for getting into an airport lounge before your flight, right? Wrong!
