Just a few notes....

* Landing fee being dropped from $3.44 to $1.07 per 1000lbs.
* Fees will be at a 20-year low
* Airport looking to raise ticket counter and gate fees for non-signatory carriers to compensate

And now a link...

Smart move on the part of MSY. With airlines looking to cut every penny in costs they can, airports that let landing fees get out of control will find themselves in trouble.

Now that's a massive drop that is sure to attract more airline service, be it by new operators or existing airlines. Perhaps DL bringing back a glimpse of the good old days at MSY and launching a few new p2p routes, like TPA, FLL, or even JFK. And then there's always the pre-9/11 dream of the daily 763 to CDG  Wink .

With that kind of reduction I'd expect to see some increased flying from several airlines out of here what do you guys think?
