    Very Spacious airport. Check in and security are a breeze. Bag claim on ground floor. Rental Cars are in a separate part of a terminal, and has a golf car to take you there if you can't make the walk.

    James Bond arrives here from the fictitious island of "San Monique" and is picked up by one of Kananga's henchmen along with Solitaire in Live and Let Die (1973).

    If more than two people, and going downtown, taxis are cheaper than the shuttles. Cabs are flat $33 each way (for 1 or 2 people or $14 pp if 3 or more). Shuttle $38 pp and need to pay in advance.

    Redefining "crappy airport!" but grab some crawfish while you're here!

    A medium size airport with few shops and facilities. It is amazing though that a small jazz band is playing live close to the entrance.

    Not the greatest airport in the world, but with so much to do and see in NOLA who cares, so long as there's water to hydrate from Bourbon street. The Jazz band greeting was a cool perk =)

    Small but clean older airport with everything you would need. Rental Car is a little walk but they have carts available if you need help.

    The new terminal looks great but they messed up getting a rental car. Add a good 30 minutes to get to and from terminal. Huge pain and fail NOLA.

    Be here early... not because of security checkpoint. It's actually been on of the smoothest operating I've been in. No, you want to make sure you've got plenty of time for drinks and Lucky Dogs

    The airport shuttle is an affordable way to get to downtown and the FQ. Sometimes the driver will give an informal narrated tour on the way into town!

    Concourse C includes a Smoothie King, Lucky Dog stand, PJ's coffee (with pizza) and a Copeland's Gourmet Kitchen (sandwiches, Cajun food), plus Atrium Lounge bar.

    The renovations at Louis Armstrong Airport look really great but that doesn't change the fact that we all die alone.

    Some food options are Shake Shack (burgers), Café du Monde (coffee, beignets) Leah’s Kitchen (fried chicken), Dook’s (burgers), Angelo Brocato (gelato & pastries), MoPho (creole/Vietnamese fusion).

    Rental car facility has moved! If you have lots of luggage, get a cart. It's a hike!

    Occasionally the parking completely fills up. It happened to us once and we had to leave our car at a tire shop and pay them to watch it. Be prepared.

    If you have more than two people in your group, uber is likely cheaper. For 1-2 people it's only $36 to downtown but for more its $15 per person! Uber X or Uber XL cheaper.

    Beware. The new rental car facility is about a mile away from the ticketing counters and baggage claim. Bring your walking shoes.

    Looking for breakfast? Go to Legends for a egg and cheese Po' boy - the sausage is spicy! Legends is by concourse D *before* you go through security.

    This airport is small enough that if you have enough time, you can walk around without worrying about rushing. The best drinks are at Bar Sazerac at Concourse B.

    If you're flying out of New Orleans from Concourse B, note the only real place to get a drink is Zatarain's Kitchen and there's usually a line to get in. Best to find something outside of security.

    I usually only park at the airport long term lot, but decided to try Park & Fly. Not only was it $5 per day less, coupled with an AAA discount, I saved about $30 on my entire trip. I will still park

    Small enough airport for quick entry and exit. Rental car building is conveniently joined a walking distance away from the terminal. TSA-pre lane is hidden with minimal signage so you might miss it.

    There's a 'tavern' on D and some cheesecake scoop place at the very end that has some pretty fresh/healthier options to couple with the bar smack in the center of the pod :)

    If you rent a car be ready for a 20 minute drive all the way around the airport. Crazy.

    Take a taxi instead of Uber if heading into the French Quarter. Taxis are a flat rate- $36 for up to 2 people. If more than 2, it’s $15 per person. Ubers we’re literally over $80 one way.

    Lobby of terminal d has some nice lounge chairs if you want to kick back and take a nap. It's before security

    It would be awesome if they did something about the trek from the rental car place to the airport. Eat at the Zatarain's kitchen!

    Minimal amount of food options past security, don't even get me started on the lack of healthy options. I'm surprised the planes are able to take off after passengers load up on Popeyes.

    Swing by Customer Relations outside of Concourse C (next to statue of Louie A.) for a free luggage tag. It's a pretty nice one.

    A well-organized and efficient airport. But no one "toots their own horn" like you might think, based on the name.

    Ticketing is on the top floor so be ready to have a walk if you arrive on a parking bus.

    If you have a morning flight, get the breakfast burrito at LP Bistro. Overstuffed yet equal parts breakfast and lunch in one.

    The airport needs more food options. For example, I am a vegetarian, and I went restaurant by restaurant and could not eat anything but Nachos. Few shopping options too.

    The security lines move well and it is a busy and congested walk to the gates. A bit further than old airport but plenty of locations to work, eat, and drink.

    Wifi is definitely better than any New York airport. Love the laid back atmosphere, and the lack of screaming children and annoying travelers.

    Dooky Chase's (outside security) might be the best airport restaurant I've ever had. Great cajun dishes at non-airport prices. Don't miss it!

    In Concourse D, Wow Cafe is a good place to pass a long layover. Sit at the bar, have a bloody mary and watch sports.

    The Delta terminal is by far the most updated and clean. If you smell hotdogs in any of the terminals it's Luckydog don't get one if you are going to sit next to someone for 3 hours on a plane!

    If you're renting a car, be prepared for a HIKE to the rental car center. There is no a rental car shuttle nor tram. Closer to terminal D; much further away from terminal A/B (Southwest @ AirTran).

    If you want Dunkin Donuts it's before security in the terminal for Southwest. If you are on united or delta you have to walk to your right. More shops and food that way anyway.

    If you fly american on a Friday afternoon, there are only 3 real options for places to eat, and the lines can get pretty long so plan accordingly!

    For long term parking, skip the airport and go to an off-site lot like US Park. Much cheaper, Great service and a quick free shuttle ride away.

    NOLA is known for its great food, music, culture, etc. The airport doesn't give you that great impression of what the city has to offer.

    Nice seats, very accessible and easy if you want to Harfe your devices and/or work while waiting for your flight.

    The airport feels small for the size of the city it serves and the number of tourists it hosts. The best part of the airport is the free WiFi. Also, it's not far from downtown.
