Any updated experiences at new MSY?
Uber/Lyft/shuttle/baggage/TSA issues fixed yet?

from what I have gathered, the problems are mostly few and far between and scattered, so you would be wrong.

The Uber/Lyft thing is being addressed and has only been a problem at certain points of the day.

Sounds like the luggage situation has been mostly rectifid.

Flew out yesterday and I have to say, what an absolute AMAZING airport. Parked, went through security within :30. The food choices are top notch in there now. TSA was FAST, incredibly fast.

The ride share stuff, no comment since I drove myself.

Flew into it last week. Looked really nice. Still needs a few finishing touches. I'm not sure about the Uber/Lyft/TSA situation, but I had no problem with our baggage.

My sister-in-law commutes to a job in Los Angeles and she has flown in and out at least three times since they opened the new airport. She said the security line was very long the first time but everything has run smoothly since. She doesn't take Uber because of the problems with it. However, she also said that at LAX, the ride share system is the same as it is now at MSY, and it is also a cluster at LAX.

A good friend flew to NY and back last week and had no problems.

I'm flying out of MSY the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Hope it runs smoothly that weekend.

I’ve flown out of there three times in the last two weeks. Each time it was better. In fact, last night it was damn near empty. The food choices are better but I’ve done Mopho and Emerils place and neither were good. I’m sure there is a learning curve there.

re: Any updated experiences at new MSY?
Had a family friend fly in Monday night. They got picked up by a friend and came to get their vehicle they left at our house.

Said it was a mess in the arrivals area and that some things were already broken and dirty but hoped things would be fixed.

We had also gone back to drop off and it was worse than my previous time but wasn't worse than the worst times at the old airport.

We did decide that we'll stay on the outside and have the person being dropped off walk across instead of getting stuck on that inside portion of the drop off area.

tl;dr - New Orleans drivers suck.

I haven't been to the finished airport yet, but the traffic at Loyola and Vets can be a clusterfrick at times.

I was on I-10W last Friday leaving NOLA and the Eastbound Loyola exit was backed up beyond belief

I went and picked up my grandparents a few days ago. Besides the lyft/Uber drivers blocking the lanes to the arrivals pickup area it was smooth sailing.

Honestly a lot smoother than I was expecting.

Barely. And now they want to add guest passes to allow non-flyers to go through security to eat and shop, so just adding unnecessary people to the security lines and parking/shuttle systems.

Its hit or miss. My work is by the airport. Sometimes it'll be clear of traffic, while the same time the next day it'll be gridlock.
