The @NO_Airport twitter account tweeted a few days ago that the independent lounge would NOT be a Priority Pass lounge. That contradicts information posted here earlier (I think).


Whomever is working the twitter account is dead wrong. Priority Pass was a requirement for the new lounge, and The Club accepts Priority Pass at all of their locations.


In that thread, the Airport further responded that it was a Priority Pass lounge partner.

An interesting tweet that may further indicate how ongoing discussions between AF and the regional chamber of commerce are proceeding. It kind of makes sense in that SkyTeam doesn't want to lose too much market share to BA and OneWorld, but the numbers aren't high enough yet to take action. Also hate when people use the word direct and non-stop interchangeably.

LOL, there used to be a place in the Quarter called "The Club" on Toulouse street, for many years pre-K...... but it definitely wasn't the type of place for families. :lol: :lol:

Unless the lounge in NOLA will be different which I dont see why it would be, you are right! heres a screenshot for sister "club lounges in orlando" followed by the same exact lounges listed on the priority pass website.

I think there is a bit of confusion about what Priority Pass is... its not really a lounge company but a company that utilizes many third party lounges to create a network.. so Priority Pass doesnt " have lounges" it just gives you access to them... still its a misleading tweet from the airport that it isnt a priority pass lounge since all that people want to know is if priority pass gives you access to it

Not shocked to see the commercial lots planning a move closer to the new terminal.

UK CAA stats are out for February. https://www.caa.co.uk/uploadedFiles/CAA/Content/Standard_Content/Data_and_analysis/Datasets/Airport_stats/Airport_data_2019_02/Table_12_1_Intl_Air_Pax_Traffic_Route_Analysis.pdf

The MSY-LHR route had an estimated load factor of 73.2% in February. There were 6,265 pax flying on an estimated 8,560 offered seats. Last year, the load factor was 65.7% with 5,340 pax flying on an estimated 8,132 offered seats. All seat estimations for MSY, BNA, and BWI are based on 788 seat count. SJC is based on 789 seat count. SJC had seven cancelled flights in Feb.

The following breaks down the numbers for each station that sees 788/789 flying exclusively.

Station..........Feb. Seats........Feb. Pax........Feb. LF.......YTD Seats.......YTD Pax......YTD LF
MSY................8,560................6,265..............73.2%.........17,548............12,585..........71.7%
BWI...............11,984................7,515..............62.7%.........24,396............17,034..........69.8%
SJC................9,072.................5,431..............59.9%.........22,464............14,208..........63.3%
BNA................6,848................4,091..............59.7%.........14,124..............8,750..........62.0%

Good to see BA filling up in the slower months. Sounds like March has been excellent for them as well. IIRC their prices were a bit lower this winter than before, so it speaks to the ability of the market to be stimulated with the right fare. As with the talk of AF to CDG, people are will to drive in as much as 3 hours for the nonstop, but the price has to be low enough to cover gas and difference in parking (as MSY parking has gotten pretty expensive relative to nearby options).

Speaking of parking, anyone have an idea of what the various rates will be? I assume the short term NT garage will be highest, followed by the surface lot and long term garage under construction. I hope they will lower the rates for the south garages, as that will be helpful for people driving in from out of town for longer trips. IIRC there are supposed to be new billboards going up along I-10 that will show the rates and how full each garage is - anyone seen those?

I know the current long term garage at south terminal is going to be cheaper than anything on the north side... people will be shuttled also all employees will park in current short term garage... also important to remember that actual airport offices and related stuff will stay on the south side


As to your question about interstate signage.. you are correct part of the RFP requires the winner to tie into interstate signage to alert to the garage and how full it is or not.. but i havent seen any signage go up yet along i-10.. imagine that should be any day now

Over 17% growth for the BA flight year over year. I can see why the rumors of daily service coming for the next winter season are so persistent.

Correct on Priority Pass, they do not have any lounges. It is literally a pass to get into partner lounges like The Club.

Also correct on the signage. From what I've heard signage will be installed shortly before the opening and covered in bags. The bags will be removed the night of the terminal opening.

DL Skyclub will be 4,600 sq feet on level 3 near the entrance to Concourse C.

United Club will be 6,000 sq feet on level 1 between gates C3 and C5.

The Club MSY will be on level 3 between Concourse A and B.

Was hoping The Club would be open by June when we fly with BA, but not totally shocked since the bid was only awarded last Fall. Good to hear the DL and UA lounges will be ready to go. At least The Club will be ready to go if/when BA goes daily.

Temporarily perhaps, but the current plan is to raze the three older concourses, and some airport offices are expected to be set up in the non-rotunda areas of Concourse D, which recurrent filming would likely disturb.

It was a YYZ-CUN flight, diverted here due to engine problems. Another Eastern 763 came in last night to bring the 200+ passengers to CUN.

So it baffles me that BA went daily to BNA with numbers like they are getting. MSY had 2,000+ pax for two less days of service. I don't get it.

Don't worry, daily service will be forthcoming. Especially with continued announcements like this of new UK-based companies setting up shop in New Orleans. In fact these guys specifically mentioned the direct London flight.

BA will be daily at BNA during the summer months, a time BNA carries more passengers than MSY.

How many are being moved from south side ?

Also does anyone know what lost baggage claim will do at the current terminal? Will those items be moved to the north side after transition date?

Also im flying out on the 11th and back on the 15th... some people traveling with were curious how to park... id say the best thing for them would be to uber lyft or get dropped off but a few still want to drive ... im assuming the north terminal parking wont be open until the 15th? Basically seems like they would rather have car at the new garage for when they land but doubt thats possible .just curious if anyone knows otherwise

6 gates in total are being moved. C6, C10, and D12, jetways have been moved over to A. I think B15 is scheduled to go next according to airport insiders. Not sure where the other two are coming from.

Any unclaimed/lost bags that are in the current terminal will be moved to the new terminal overnight between the last flight on 5/14 and the first flight on 5/15.

Everyone will be shuttled over to the existing lots if they parked before 5/15. The new lots will open the same day as the terminal. I would definitely recommend Uber/Lyft/Taxi if you want to avoid the shuttle trip.

No answer for that one. Probably up to the individual retailer.

Has there been any official corroboration that their daily service is summer-only?

From what I gather, that's just a general assumption based on BA having not yet released their fall/winter schedules....

That’s what I’ve come across as well. BNA didn’t say anything about seasonal daily service. It’s advertised as year round, daily.

I came to the conclusion by comparing a random week in June (daily service) with a random week in November (less than daily) on BA's website.

Ah, well, that explains it.

As stated, the actual schedule for that month hasn't been released yet. What's on the site is a place-holder and subject to change.

Glad we agree that it explains it, but I'm not sure why you would state the schedule for the month hasn't been released yet when it has been released, published, and is bookable. Of course it is subject to change; that is true of any schedule at any airline at any time.

Just FYI, using your time table MSY is not daily in the winter. Weird.

BA’s Fall/Winter schedule starting in November is open for booking but it hasn’t been finalized yet. It’s just a dummy schedule. That’s why BNA still shows a 4X weekly 788 in the GDS.

Sometime in April or May the schedule will be finalized.

Msyflyer, MSY going daily is still just rumors, albeit strong ones, until it happens.

Daily service at MSY has not been announced.

"Dummy schedule", "Place holder schedule", it can be called whatever anyone wants it to be called but that does not change the fact that it is the published schedule as of now. The issue is will BNA be daily year round? The media reports I've seen specifically state "next summer"; I haven't seen anything that states year round.

"British Airways will increase flights from Nashville next summer, offering daily service from Nashville International Airport to London Heathrow."

Exactly - who said it wasn’t published and open for booking?

Interesting regarding BNA if that’s the truth.

Well it was stated that the schedule "wasn't released". Regardless, as stated it is always subject to change.

I do hope BNA does indeed go daily year round - it bodes well for the other newer markets.

No joke, but I think this is fastest I've seen roadwork get completed in metro New Orleans. T-42 days until opening.

The mural is going up on the elevators.

Also, here is a shot of the jetways on A.

I agree regarding BNA. I was just there last week and the city is going gamgbusters. Great place, happy for them.

Incidentally I’m really happy for PIT as well, and daily service within a year wouldn’t surprise me. Exciting to see BA return to former markets and add new ones.

You're welcome to engage in semantics as much as you'd like, but fact remains that the schedule currently shown is not meant as an accurate reflection of the schedule nor fleet type that the airline plans to operate.

Hell, same with the other intercon carrier in the MSY market: DE, which until updating its summer schedule recently, had 30seat hi-J as their displayed and bookable fleet choice for the market, just as it did last year, despite no announced intention of increasing premium capacity.

A couple of things caught my eye:
They mentioned having the public involved in a test run prior to opening. That had been a question for me and something that would be fun to do.

One of the captions said DL, UA, and NK on concourse C. Previous plans also had B6 on C. I wonder if that was a mistake or if NK or others needed more room and B6 got booted to another concourse.

The airport director spoke briefly at a recent tourism forum. It mostly consisted of bickering over hotel taxes, but a couple of notable points:
He sees opportunities to improve collaboration with the port, particularly to benefit fly-in cruise passengers and southside redevelopment.
Emphasis on improving relationships with Jefferson and St. Charles parishes and Kenner.
Strong support for rail service to Baton Rouge with a stop at the airport and eastward along the gulf coast, noting that it would boost passenger draw geographically.

Would also love to participate in the test runs if I'm not working that day.

I know NK is going to 4 gates in C, so B6 is probably over in B now.

Latest aerial of the new terminal.

The RON spots are marked out south of A and east of C. The ramp area is effectively ready to go based on this. Also great to see the jetways on concourse A. New parking garage is progressing along nicely.

Been screaming THAT for years... would be great to finally see it happen, especially for int'l flights.

Would love to see it, but not holding my breath. Legacy of Jindal still lives on, in the area's general aversion to that. :(

How many average daily departures (current+planned) are they up to now?
