Gate Change at JFK: "Flight 1847 to DFW will now depart from LGA"
 
I just stepped off of an early AA10 to hear speakers in the terminal blasting this one. Sure enough, the 7:50am JFK-DFW has had a "gate change", and is now departing from LGA. There were quite a few puzzled looks from pax and staff alike, but they all seemed to be taking it in stride. I suppose in better days, that plane would have been ferried over here, instead of pax going to it. At least they're providing a bus, but I don't know how those who would normally show up at 645 or 7 are going to make it

This is amusing. :cool:

It also makes for a very interesting flight status on aa.com.

If you were at JFK and took the bus, would you get miles and EQPs for the JFK-LGA leg? (Too bad it isn't a segment.)

Maybe about 15 years ago, I had a morning flight LGA-DFW. When I got to LGA, there was an agent out on the curb asking where folks were heading. When I said DFW, he just said, get on that bus. I assumed the flight was departing from one of the other terminals, but when the bus got onto the Grand Central, I figured something was up...

Sure enough, they had moved the flight to JFK. With the shift, I think we arrived in DFW about an hour or two late.

Eventually, I'd love to see the AirTrain run from JFK to Jamaica and on to LGA. It would be neat to have a 30-minute connection between the two. And, if they could set it up to move baggage securely via AirTrain, that would be even better...

There is a silver lining here, to be sure: a free ride on the fabulous Van Wyck, where there is ALWAYS traffic.

Although I agree with you this would be great I doubt any of us here will live to it come to pass.

well at least they provided transportation. maybe AA called some of the pax and let them know about the change? i had an agent call me and tell me our flight was really delayed and was trying to book me on other flights out of lga

Airtrain from Jamaica to JFK and LGA would be ideal. But considering the train concept was alive since the 70's might be another 30yrs

I use JFK because there's no AirTrain to LGA. :(

(and no more AA at ISP) :( :(

I dispute the color of the lining. :)

The lining appears to be grey... charcoal grey.

They say nobody has ever beaten the Van Wyck.
