FORT WORTH, Texas - Soon there will be more room between the Big Apple and the Big Easy. American Airlines begins nonstop service between New York’s LaGuardia airport and New Orleans on Oct. 1 onboard a 139-seat Super 80 aircraft featuring American’s exclusive “More Room Throughout Coach” configuration.
“Passengers flying nonstop between these two great cities will join the growing list of people giving their knees a break,” said Henry Joyner, American’s Senior Vice President, Planning. “American removed more than 9,000 coach seats from its entire fleet so that our customers can enjoy extra legroom in the main cabin.”
American will operate one daily nonstop flight between the two cities. Frequent connecting service remains available through American’s hubs in Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, and St. Louis.
New Orleans is the third new nonstop destination from LaGuardia that American has announced recently. On Aug. 1, American begins new nonstop service between LaGuardia and Kansas City.
