Don’t fly to LaGuardia Airport if You Don’t Want to Miss Your Flight
Travelling to or from LaGuardia Airport (LGA) in New York? Well you might want to reconsider…since they just started a $4 Billion Renovation project at LaGuardia and traffic has been INSANE. Unless you want to waste your precious time stuck in traffic for 2 hours with other angry travellers, you should switch airports to either Newark Airport or John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).
The traffic is so bad, travellers are literally walking from their cabs/cars to the airport to make their flights on time (hopefully). If you must absolutely travel from LaGuardia, for some reason even after reading our warning and seeing the misery of other travellers, you should budget in at least 3-4 hours of additional travel time.
Here’s some tweets that show how crazy it is in LaGuardia New York Airport right now
Wondering whether or not you should use up all your vacation days? A research study by Project Time-Off shows that people whom have used over 11 vacation days, actually earned more through bonuses and promotions. How about that?
Vacation + More $$$ = The dream, but it’s actually true!
Take a look at this chart for proof
It makes sense because people who take vacations are generally more happier and relaxed, and thus can put this energy into their workplace with a pay off in the return of a bonus or promotion with a higher salary. This can be backed by another another research study conducted by Project Time-Off, which concluded that 80% of managers actually believed vacation time allowed for energy levels to remain high on their teams, and 67% said their employees were more productive as a result.
