How is LaGuardia these days?

Hi there. I would love to hear some recent experiences flying out of there (we usually fly out of Newark). We're leaving for the Caribbean at 6am on a Thursday, stopping in Miami for a change in plane - AA all the way..and yes we're very familiar with Miami's "lovely" airport . I'd love to hear about security/lines, etc... Are they pretty organized? That type of thing...
Thank you for sharing.
P.S.: I did post this on the airlines forum as well.

LGA is great, just fine.
My experience is limited to AA flights.

Busy as usual.

While it had become bearable the 24 months or so after September 11th, it seems to me it is back to its crazy pre 9/11 delays and waits.

I thought Fiorello La Guardia died some years ago.

Too bad you aren't going through Miami first. After that airport, LaGuardia would seem like a dream.

Well- actually I think he died before they named the airport after him.

I do remember my mother telling me about his reading the Sunday comics on the radio when there was a newspaper strike - so people wouldn;t have to miss them. (A full service mayor.)

LGA is my least favorite airport. it's just so busy, they can't handle it. i always prefer JFK or EWR, even if i come from Long Island. The security lines alone are enough to drive you crazy, and heaven forbid it rains a drop because then there is significant delays.

Odd... I have never had problems there. In the past 5 years I would say I have flown AA in/out of LGA 50 times and have never had a delay or problem.
They have decent places to eat, too.

I flew out of there fairly recently (after the latest security situation). I was in and waiting by the gate in under 20 minutes. If you can do the electronic ticketing that should speed you through too. If you're catching a 6 am flight, I can't imagine it would be busy at that hour. You should zip right through.
