    Has anyone ever landed on runway 13 or taken off on runway 22 at lga?

    I've taken off from both ends of 13/ 31, but only ever landed on 31 on this runway. The opposite holds true from me on 4/22. I've landed on 4 and 22, but only departed on 4.

    This is over the course of well over 100 flights. I presume there are restrictions in place of some sort?

    LGA rarely changes patterns, mostly because they have to work with JFK and EWR.

    But whenever they hold LGA Kid's Day (always on a Saturday, this year is coming up on 9/17) they usually close 4/22 and use 13 for both. That should give you a good chance to land on 13 if you have a flight planned that day. :)

    I've landed on 13 but have never taken off on 22. I imagine they'd not want to take off on 22 since it heads right over population?
