Jet Blue is the best airline - usually on time, cheap fares, friendly crew, well serviced planes with Direct TV sets in front of each passenger. They still serve snacks including Terra Blue Chips (made from natural blue potatoes!) and soda/water/juice for free on every flight. You can join True Blue Rewards to try to get a free flight - you need 100 points and they expire after a year. Flights to Buffalo from JFK are only 2 points each, to California 6 points (double points if you book online). Most flights are out of JFK. I think from LGA (LaGuardia) they only go to Florida. Besides booking online and choosing your seat, you can also get your boarding passes online 24 hours prior to flying or checkin through an airport kiosk that scans a barcode you have printed at home.
