    One of the most spacious and cleanest airports in the US.

    You can grab beer or wine from a lil place across gate b7 and take it to drink @ your terminal! No need to sit @ the bar.

    Airport originally named Moisant Field after aviator John Moisant (died in crash 1910), later Moisant Stock Yards, hence, MSY. Renamed in 2001 to honor 100th anniversary of Armstrongs birth

    Terminal D finally gets a facelift. Check out the new seats in the rotunda. United has lots of outlets.

    Concourse B has decent food. Lucky Dogs, Praline Express, and Live Oaks are some local options. The Magnificent Burger from Jester's was pretty good, and huge to boot.

    Great souvenir shopping, but eat before you get here. There is no good good in here at all. But the drinks at the bakery at B9 are fabulous

    Make sure you’re lined up in the right security lane for your gate, even for TSA Pre-check. Otherwise you’ll have to go through security all over again!

    Praline Connection is great. Worth stopping by and picking up some pralines.

    If you're in terminal C go to copeland's kitchen and get a banana foster sundae. It's remarkable!!

    Small airport with not a lot of services but you can get through security quickly and it’s never a long walk to your gate.

    If you are checking through TSA pre-check you don't have to remove shoes, belts, or take laptops out. Funny that so many still do despite signs .

    Not many food options past security (at least in the Southwest terminal). Keep that in mind if you're fighting a vicious Bourbon Street hangover.

    Leaving Louisiana? Enjoy one last luxury. Get a drink from the bar and take it to the gate (or on the plane). Happy travels!

    Apart from having one of the slowest TSA ID Check Lines, the baggage claim is surprisingly pretty fast and easy to get to, unlike other airports.

    Bright airport, looks like a shopping mall. Big enough, but easy to navigate and very passenger friendly. Could be busy at the weekends, expect long lines. 25min/35-40USD taxi ride away.

    When checking in at concourse B, choose the left line. The one on the right looks shorter but it wraps around. The left is a straight shot.

    The taxi lines can be confusing as there are many signs but seems to only have one in operation at a time

    Heading downtown? Go to the departure level and catch the E2 bus. It’s $2 per person and it only adds about 15 minutes to your ride.

    PRO TIP: Eat BEFORE you go through security at ACME Oyster house. Delicious, but dont go there if you are short on time. Food options are BEFORE security.

    If you need to kill time, the Hilton across the street is comfortable, nice, and has wireless and good food.

    Great experience with American and Southwest though! United ticket desk is horrible here. Do not expect help, compassion or anything other than Very unhappy folks who do not really like their jobs.

    Grab a taxi instead of an Uber. It’s a flat rate of $36 vs prices in the $70s.

    I hate to say anything bad about a place with Louis Armstrong's name on it, but this is the lamest big city airport I've ever been to. Just a whole lot of nothing once you go through security.

    Concourse C has little worth eating—an employee at the Zatarain's literally told me nothing was good. Don't expect to survive on anything but water & snacks, sprinkled with gross fatty southern fare.

    Decadence kickoff was fabulous! Don't leave your phone unattended, some hoodlum will take it and police reports are antagonising. Have fun Queens!! Happy Decadence ;)

    Welcome to New Orleans! Our advice...skip Bourbon street and get to Frenchmen. Better music and bars

    TSA at MSY is ridiculous! Why 1 person is checking boarding passes and 3 "watching" when there are 50+ people in line makes 0 sense to me. My advice is get there early / in plenty of time!

    Just take a cab downtown if you're traveling w/someone. Downtown shuttle is $38 per person and will stop at several other hotels on the way. Cab fare for 2 is $33.

    Security can be lengthy. Plan ahead. Plenty of good eats if you have to wait
