Taking Flight


Into the clouds.

New Orleans has a new airport.

It hasn’t moved. A new terminal and runway system opened about two weeks ago right across a couple of runways from the old one.

There were all sorts of complaints when the airport first opened. Curbside parking was a mess. There were very long lines to catch a taxi, Uber or Lyft. Most of the outbound baggage belts didn’t work. When they did work it was likely that your luggage went to Kansas City while you went to Los Angeles. Inbound was no better. The list was long.

However, every place that sold food worked. At least travelers could eat real New Orleans food from real New Orleans places run by real New Orleans people.

Overall, that sounds terrible.

Nope. By last night most of those issues were resolved. The only people still complaining about them are the people who always complain about everything. The only real long term issue is the direct ramp from the interstate to the airport. That was a mistake in planning and follow up. It should be finished in two years. By then nobody will care.

This picture has nothing to do with the new airport.  Sure, that’s where the jet departed from, but it’s a couple of thousand feet in the air. Because I’m driven towards art these days, there is a lot of post production going on. I’m not sure this one makes it.

Oh well.
