anyone traveling through KMSY today?



Some big air traffic for Louis Armstrong Intl Airport. Plenty of airbus a321s, 757s. Some 767s and one 747. Pretty cool if you have nuthing else to do, go spot airplanes there. Has msy ever handled 747s besides air force one?

Probably other charters.

Don't know of any regularly-scheduled 747 service.

If anyone is flying from there today, be sure to get your Super Bowl pin. LINK

I doubt it on the Europe flights. Like regulary scheduled no, but sure they have chartered every so often.

Doing logistics for an airline for larger than normal loads seems like a cool job.

Very stressful...I wouldn't want to do it...

These increased loads to/from MSY mean different sets of pilots, different planes on other routes, etc.

Trying to get them all back where they "normally" are in the most cost effective manner isn't easy.
