How long is the drive from Laguardia airport to JFK airport?

I have a friend picking my son up from an inbound flight at Laguardia and driving him to JFK for an international flight. How much time should I allow for the drive? The flight arrival is on a Tuesday at around noon.

It is about 10 miles from LGA to JFK, all highway. By taxi the trip should not take much more than 15 minutes, assuming there is no major traffic delay.

On a perfect day ~15min. 3am on a Sunday (with no roadwork)

On a normal good day ~20-30min. Some traffic and a pinch point or two, but generally smooth flowing.

On a bad day it can be 45min - usually because of a tie up on the Van Wyck before JFK.

On a horrendous day... never seen one of these, Danke sei Gott.

Plan for a bad day and hope to be pleasantly surprised.

On Tuesday noon, unless weather is really bad or someone decides to start massive roadwork on the Van Wyck, you should be there in less than 25 minutes... (assuming you begin counting when you're already out of the airport...)

Two and a half hours between flights should be more than enough. Three would be better, two would be doable. Less than two, I'd be worried.
