Exit I-10 at Loyola Dr. You get on the airport access road once Loyola crosses Vets. Flyovers from I-10 are in design/construction. About 2 years off.

Who could have imagined that a new airport might benefit from easy access? Only two years away if the schedule holds.

On the bright side - yesterday, the second busiest travel day of the year, everything apparently went smoothly.

When my daughter and I went to Pittsburgh a week & a 1/2 ago, my wife drove us to the new airport (for the 1st time obviously) and basically just followed the signs to get to the terminal. Have to give a big :thumbsup: to the planners on how excellent the signage was to get you to the airport quickly and the with the least amount of anxeity. Of course it was approximately 5AM and with a minimal amount of traffic, but still great planning by the builders.

So things went well for you 1) when you had somebody to drive you & 2) When you were going before anybody was awake,when you were going before anybody was awake, And suddenly that experience gives you the confidence to declare they did an “AMAZING” job?!?! Good grief.

I flew in and out a couple weekends ago. It's a beautiful airport. I especially appreciated the separate line at security for travelers with kids/strollers. Did options are solid. I picked up some Broccato's cannoli on my way out.
The pickup area is a shîtshow. There is a side for Uber/Lyft and then the cabs are mixed in with the regular traffic. And they just sit and block spots. Also, there are no moving sidewalks in the airport. My gate was as far away as possible and it was hike. Not a problem for me, but anyone with mobility issues better be getting a cart.
Cell phone lot is very convenient. In and out wasn't bad, but I wasn't at peak times either.
Really, who would have thought they would need better off ramp before the airport opened? I mean I know it sprang up out of nowhere ahead of schedule and all...

My airport review: all nice and shiny (as you'd expect) but weirdly cramped...not a lot of room for dropoff, the ticket counter area seems much smaller than before; once through security, the walking area is too narrow by 2-3 feet on each side with the restaurants/retail in the middle. Pickup (non-Uber division) is a disaster with cops stopping traffic constantly for pedestrians (if you're going to spend $1B, can't we get some way to have traffic flow?). At least my luggage didn't get lost, and the breakfast tacos at Mondo were really good.

My pick up was fast as hell coming home but I had to wait on the plane 20 minutes for maintenance to fix the motor on the jetway. I was impressed with the patience of my fellow passengers; not one peep (I resorted to cannibalism instantly).

Our arrival at midnight 12/23 was jammed outside baggage claim - even though the terminal was empty at that point.

But dropping off my son early on 12/26 was easy peasy - even the Loyola exit which I thought would be a nightmare from my days living in Kennuh, bruh.

Xmas night was the same way, doncecco... terminal was dead but baggage claim was packed... a Lyft to Uptown was $61.. so we took a cab for the flat rate of $15 per person X3... I absolutely LOVE the food options... in the B concourse we ate at Emeril's which was right across from the American gates. They also have Shake Shack right past security. Security was a breeze on the way out.

Leaving early on the 26th was easy peasy and so was returning late on the 8th.

yeah, but was your luggage on your plane when you left? Big story on the news while we were in NO from the 25th through 29th was the fact luggage wasn't making it onto planes because of some conveyor belt issues... fortunately, they had it working fine the day we left!

We didn't pay to take checked baggage, showed up late for our flight, were offered free checked baggage (for all 3 flights over) and two we checked made it just fine.

I use the Loyola exit daily and my biggest fear was that I’d have to start exiting at Williams but so far it hasn’t been as bad as expected. The first week was bad enough for me to consider moving, but they redid the lanes at the exit and so far, there’s a little back up at the Williams overpass but most days there isn’t much delay. (My travel times are 6-6:15am and 3-4pm most days so I’m beating the peak traffic times)

So I see your experience was pretty much the same as mine a week and a half later yet you ripped my post as being unqualified? Imagine that. :roll:

I didn't give a verdict, just reported my experience for more anecdotal evidence. That's a HUGE difference.

Meanwhile, you had several other factors that made your trip deviate from the norm.

It isn't always what one says, it is sometimes simply how one says it :coolshades: :angel: :angel:

That’s a new one. I did sleep passed out overnight under the Superdome sign in my college days but was fully clothed.

Too bad she looks nothing like the Sofia with the same surname. :lol:

She "pulled on a dress but it was too short to cover her genitals" and she was wearing no underwear... classy lady...

Gotta wonder what chemicals Ms. Vergara was on at the time.
