Re: New Orleans Aviation Thread - 2019

The New Orleans brand still has a huge head start over some of these newer, flashier, hipster filled cities. Also, agreed concerning not being a perfect proxy for air service. Some markets like Flagstaff are most likely dominated by auto or rail traffic with most of the visitors initially arriving in PHX or LAS.

Looking at the country profiles...we show up for the UK. Quick math puts UK visitors at 206 per day in 2017.

I'd imagine that number has gone way up, in the advent of a nonstop to the UK... albeit a pricey one.

I would point out the relative lack of formerly common charter ops since the advent of [email protected] though.

Airport used to frequently have TUI, Thomas Cook, Monarch, etc flying in for cruises and the like, several times per year. I understand that the latter's gone, but I'm surprised that the cruises and ensuing charters haven't been anywhere near as common as they used to be. I figured if anything, they'd increase, as UK folk become more and more familiar with MSY as a travel option. Especially since Thomas Cook still heavily promotes NOLA-originating Caribbean cruises (usually via cnnx on B6 to their own metal).
I myself, suspect a more prosaic motive... ~Thranduil
