Bus Station of Airports (LaGuardia Airport nickname)

New York City’s LaGuardia Airport reminds many people of a bus station (an unflattering comparison). LaGuardia has often been called the “Bus Station of Airports.”

“Laguardia airport look like a greyhound bus station” was posted on Twitter by lil duval on July 17, 2009. “Laguardia is the bus station of airports” was posted on Twitter by Mark ‘Another User’ Shyzer on March 4, 2013. “LaGuardia is the bus station of airports” was posted on Twitter by “my name here” on July 19, 2013. “Laguardia is the bus station of airports” was posted on Twitter by Brian Sargent on April 3, 2015. “The Bus station of airports!  Can we at least get some seats by departure gates?  #Laguardia #NYC” was posted on Twitter by Skip Dillard on April 1, 2016.

Another LaGuardia Airport nickname is “"LaGarbage.”


Wikipedia: LaGuardia Airport
LaGuardia Airport (IATA: LGA, ICAO: KLGA, FAA LID: LGA) /ləˈɡwɑːrdiə/ is a domestic airport in East Elmhurst, Queens, New York City. Covering 680 acres (280 ha), the airport is the third busiest airport serving New York City, after JFK and Newark airports, and the twentieth busiest in the United States. The airport adopted its current name in 1953 for Fiorello La Guardia, the mayor of New York City when the airport was built. LGA is a hub for American Airlines and Delta Air Lines.

LaGuardia isn’t really an airport so much as a bus station with a runway
