LGA is relatively quiet too, tho it's my first time here so I don't really have a basis of comparison. I will say tho, WHY IS GATE C7 IN TERMINAL B. That makes no sense! 😡

Same with ORD!

I did the same thing at JFK last year on the day before thanksgiving. I got there early because I expected a zoo and it was probably the best travel day of the year. Flight departed early, arrived early, and my bags were like 3rd off the belt. It was amazing for the "busiest travel day of the year"

Indeed you did. Most folks are already en route or at their destinations.

One of the great many problems with LGA is gate numbering. It's so easy to fix and they can't even be bothered with it.

Yeah it's actually extremely frustrating at LGA. Don't know what idiot decided it was a good idea
