    My favorite terminal at LGA. As of Dec 2017 Delta no longer flying in and out of it. I hope it doesn’t get demolished.

    Small and fast
  • Tyler J.
    If you're travelling light, the walk to the nearest m60 stop (Grand Central Pkwy) is less than 15 min and beats taking a shuttle further into the depths of the pit that is LGA

    Love the Marine terminal. Be warned, it's pretty far from the other LGA terminals, but it's always the shortest and easiest security line.

    Charming, retro Art Deco terminal. If you're flying Delta Shuttle, know that there aren't many food options, but there are lots of comfortable seats and outlets.

    Delta is terrible. Delay. Delay. Delay. Then cancel. Hotel voucher when already maxed their voucher quota with vendor: Marriot. All Delta employees gone, no hotline help. TSA gone. Slept in LGA lobby.

    Quickest security line of any airport. Precheck is modified. You still need to take your laptop out, but all other Precheck benefits apply.

    Best way to fly in and out of New York. It's like a small town airport (if the small town was populated by wealthy business folks in suits)

    Check out the Yankee Clipper lunch counter pre-security. It is simple food in a plain setting. Cheap. Seems to be where airport employees eat lunch. Check out the 360 degree mural on the way there.

    Pre-check is only available 9 am - 5 pm, but this terminal is more of the sky lounge with a few terminals attached then an airport.

    if youd flight is arriving into this terminal, call a uber instead of waiting on a taxi. Even though they occasionally have an attendant they still have a hard time getting open cabs here quickly

    If arriving and you've rented from Hertz, call Hertz and ask when the next shuttle will be arriving. Although it's not public info, they do not send shuttles regularly to this terminal.

    The cafe charges double for food. 2.75 for a regular coffee probably Folgers, 11 dollars for a tiny ass sandwich and sprinkle of chips.Scrapings size of chicken on the sandwich was what set me off.

    Go like a pro, save time and money. Skip the taxi and hop the M60 bus ($2.25 w/ a metro card) to Astoria Blvd. Free transfer up the stairs to the N/Q train. You'll be anywhere in midtown in ~ 45 mins.
