Quick question-

What time do we need to get to LGA for a 7:40am flight.

It is an international flight and we are flying first class on American.

thanks!

I just flew out Tuesday and it was a five minute walk through security. Not that you could always count on that but this was at 11:00 in the morning. I was amazed. No extra screenings than normal.

we fly in and out of laguardia main terminal all the time, and it is a strange airport with respect to how long the security and checkin lines are. we try to get there ninety minutes early, not including time to park, and sometimes we sit at the gate for an hour and sometimes for ten minutes.

international flight from laguardia?????? not very many of those.

To be safe, you should be at the arport no less than 2 hours before an international flight, and 1 hour before a domestic. You say you're going through Miami - are you changing planes in Miami, or is it a direct flight? If you're changing planes in Miami, then your flight from LGA is domestic, and you only need to be there an hour in advance. If you're flying direct with a stop in Miami, You should be there two hours before, just to be safe. It'll PROBABLY mean that you have a ton of time to kill at the airport, but better safe than sorry.
