 DLD2013-12-24Sky Priority Line leads to a WTMD. All others directed to MMW. 950a0
 DLC (Delta commuter flight)2013-12-00AIT in place but turned off; everybody through WTMD9p
 DLC2013-11-20Pretty decent staff but everyone was being directed through the backscatterrs430a10
 DLMAT2013-11-17Running late I resigned myself to the NoS. as I walked in to it, one TSO yells "recalibrate" and the other points me to the WTMD. Success!330p0
 DLMAT2013-11-15Looks like a lucky few skipped the scan at LGA330p
 DLMarine Air Terminal2013-11-06Everyone except Pre-Check through the MMW. Only good thing is that the TSOs at this checkpoint actually had some common sense.620p5
 DLC or D (Delta connection flight)2013-11-00scanner turned off, pax sent through WTMD10p
 WN2013-10-12Have knee replacement. No body scanner. Forced to do pat down, even after explaining knee. The TSA agent said the airport was too small to have scanners. No wand offered. 12p10
 DLC2013-09-29No SDOO possible at this time. At other times, it looks like you would have more sucess at the right checkpoint at Terminal C.500a5
 DL2013-08-10Took off my shoes and walked through WTMD and that was it!!! No porn machines and no pat downs. In today's travel environment, as close to bliss as you can get. Laid back TSA, polite, ahhhh makes you pine for the good old days when we had some dignity flying.11a
 DLTerminal D2013-05-26Right lane and sky priority / Pre-check lanes have WTMD only. Left lane goes to body scanner.430p
 AACTB-D2013-05-21Easy SDOO here. Left lane is WTMD only, right lane goes to MMW.900a
 DLTerminal D2013-05-20MMW in use on the left, WTMD-only lane to the right. 350p5
 DLMarine Air Terminal2013-05-05WTMD-only! Renovations are occurring at the MAT, so a MMW could appear here in the near future. TDC was playing the name game. 550p0
 US32013-03-14no scanners in sight only metal detectors840a5
 USTerminal C2013-03-05At Terminal C, for US Airways, at left checkpoint, both lanes were using WTMD! Backscatter machine was roped off. This was the middle of the day with only a moderate amount of travelers1230p15
 USTerminal C, Left Checkpoint2013-03-05Both lanes used WTMD. MMW ( not backscatter) roped off1230p15
 DLD-right2012-12-30gate was in C, walkway open730a
 AACTB-D2012-12-25Three lanes from left to right: PreCheck, WTMD, MMW with ATR. Use the center lane to avoid the MMW.700a
 DLC2012-12-15Here's the deal with C gates. There are two CPs, and they are mirror images of each other. Both have a paired WTMD and MMW and a standalone WTMD. Obviously you want to (and can) SDOO towards the WTMD, although even at the pair an SDOO looked easy. At the left checkpoint, stay right. At the right checkpoint, stay left. You can access D gates from these CPs currently via a frequent shuttle bus; they are rebuilding the connecting corridor. 1030a
 DLD2012-12-15Here's the deal with D gates. There are two CPs. The left-side CP has a paired WTMD and MMW and a standalone WTMD, stay left for it (you can SDOO). The smaller right-side . At the left checkpoint, stay right. At the right checkpoint, there is only a MMW/WTMD pair, and most pax seem to be pointed at the MMW, so avoid this one. You can access C gates from these CPs currently via a frequent shuttle bus; they are rebuilding the connecting corridor.1030a

 DLC - Left hand2012-10-07The lefthand entrance had the WTMD lane blocked up with bricks, fortunately the MMW was roped off as well. The MMW lane is on the left.710a

 UAC2012-09-10Sadly LGA now has a MMW scanner. All other lanes closed.500p10
 B6Terman B (concourse A)2012-09-04All were being directed through the MMW at this check point. Opted out and had the pleasure of dealing with a very nice and courteous TSA agent who game me a traditional pat down and sent me on my way. A very nice opt out experience here at Laguardia.7a
 AAc2012-08-25URGENT! We decided to NOT fly today. There is a XRAY machine at gate C. WARNING!! do not expose yourself to this DNA destroying machine.
 DLD2012-08-25One NoS scanner on left side. Self select to the right side to avoid, but it was not in use. I asked if my 6yo daughter needs to put off her shoes. They started interrogating her! 6yo! They need to know her name before they can answer me if she needs to take off her shoes?

 AATerminal 2 - D gates checkpoint2012-07-16There is a BKSX scanner on the far right of the checkpoint. It was roped off when I went through the checkpoint. It's probable that you could avoid having to go through the scanner by staying left when it is in use. An ominous sign warns you that the x-ray scanner is optional, but you will receive a "thorough patdown."1000a5

 FLTerminal B2012-05-05Wonderful experience, 2 WTMD only, and just a few TSA personnel manning the checkpoint. Very efficient. Visit this checkpoint to understand why we need to eliminate NoS/backscatter!410p5

 DLD terminal2011-12-09Spoke briefly with a TSO, who mentioned that they did not know if/when LGA's D terminal was getting scanners. Also mentioned that they wanted no part of them because of the headaches they cause TSOs! Very quick and professional screening, sharp contrast to my experiences at BWI and DCA.400p15
 UACTB-C2011-12-08Didn't see any NoS scanners. TDC was friendly to my gf, who was flying w/o ID.800a
