I hear there are a lot of LGA turns available for pick up over at SWA...

Seems that place (LGA) just plain sucks no matter who you are.

However, when we had to sit for 2 hours waiting for take-off at least we were getting paid over and above.

Is a "trip" just a trip ( same pay ) no matter how long you guys have to sit out there?

no, we still get paid overfly. It just doesnt start until 12 minutes over the sched. The TA was 5 minutes over, but either way in LGA money will be made...

How are they gonna do it?

Pull off V1 while taxiing to the hold short of course. I mean, the airport's not big enough to facilitate "hauling the chili" on taxiway AA.

If you hate LGA, look up the history... it will give you a different perspective...

I am excited to return to LGA after many years away. Hard to complain about getting paid to sit around with the parking brake set.

Ah yes, OT while sitting on DD short of the windsock, parking brake set, USA Today crossword in hand. Who said LGA isn't civilized??

Then again, I did 6+07 LGA-MDW one night, 4 +/- of it on the taxiways. Hard to enjoy the OT of a leg like that...

I've worked some LGA flights the past few days... it might suck... some of the delays were long.... BUT.... it's still better than PHL. NO DOUBT. I don't care what anyone says.

Also, try the pizza at La Famiglia, in the food court. I recommend the "fresca" which is a white mozzarella, with slices of tomato and some sort of green vegetable I can't identify but is quite tasty . . . . Although I am a lifelong Giordanno's fan, this fresca pizza rocks. PS., ask TSA to turn up the wattage on the xray when it goes through, if you want it to still be hot at the gate (works on pizza, but not on FA's, very few of those will be "hot" no matter the x-ray setting).
