Re: ''Transit advocates urge Hochul to scrap LaGuardia AirTrain''

"...who says Amtrak has the air rights over their approach?"

I would say Amtrak does. After all, thats part of Amtrak's golden goose, the NEC.
But this subthread is all moot. You'll see the second av subway go to Yonkers before they build a subway/Airtrain over their bridge. I mean during construction and maintenance of the line would incur some service suspension. Amtrak will "what if" it to death to contribute to the argument to prevent it.
Just extend the Astoria El to the Airport from Ditmars & be done with it. Thats the cheapest & most practical was to serve the Airport. Screw the NIMBYS. They were overcome when building the Airtrain over the Van Wyck & overcome with the 3d track on the LIRR from New Hyde Park to Hicksville. They are noisy, but their not a brick wall.
