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

    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 =)

    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.

    This is literally the best airport I've been in. The staff is very friendly and there are super cozy couches to relax and even to sleep. Brilliant!

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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).

    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.

    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!

    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 Airport Shuttle is totally the way to get to your hotel from the airport. One way ticket is $20, RT $30. Cabs are approx $34 o/w. Buy ticket online or at kiosk by baggage claim

    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

    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 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!

    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!

    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.

    Lobby of C and D terminal has waiting spaces that have USB and regular outlets if you want to charge up. From what I can see the chairs at the gate in terminal d have outlets as well.

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

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

    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.

    Buy Souveneirs on your way out of town in terminal gift shops. They cost about the same as you would pay downtown, with less hastle from tsa security, especially snow globes!

    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.

    Please don't use those bathrooms. It doesn't seem to be cleaned very often. And there are only about 3 stalls(maybe 4 stalls) In the women's bathroom. The sink is opposite side of the towel paper!

    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.

    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.

    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 .

    If you need to ship something home, go to "Rush It" on the baggage concourse. They'll ship whatever you need, including a pocket knife I forgot to put in my checked bag.

    Plan to wait about 30 minutes at security if you have a morning flight, unless you are fortunate to have a priority or tsa pre-check. Add 10-15 for printing boarding passes and dropping off luggage.

    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.

    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.

    Terminal D is really nice and Wow Cafe has a great veggie burger. So stupid they're wasting tax payer money to build a new airport.

    Airport is easy to get around. Good selection of food in most gates. Not a bad drive if you live in the Baton Rouge area.

    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.

    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!
