(*** IMPORTANT TRAVEL ADVISERY *** FROM FINE MOTOR CARS) 

Because of the ongoing reconstruction of Laguardia Airport in New York, and the massive traffic delays currently taking place there, both on arrival and especially on departures, WE STRONGLY ADVISE YOU TO LOOK AT OTHER OPTIONS TO ARRIVE AND DEPART FROM in the New York area when making your travel arrangements.  The alternatives (in order) are JFK Airport, Newark Liberty Airport, or even Stewart Airport in New Windsor, NY in Orange County or Republic Airport in Suffolk County.  Reports are all over the news that missed planes by passengers are as high as 35% due to exceedingly massive traffic jams in getting to and from the terminals in the (Laguardia) airport and people are actually getting out of their cars while ON THE HIGHWAY AND ATTEMPTING TO WALK TO THE AIRPORT WITH THEIR LUGGAGE as much as 1 mile away.  We do not see this situation improving any in the summer at all when air travel is at its peak.
