Being that is a consumer blog, I decided to add in a new twist to it: Review of the major airports I travel in and out of. Denver’s review is coming soon. We recently travelled back from New Orleans and I gotta say, while the airport has been renovated many many times since Katrina and before, it is still a dump. The facilities are not that great but the eating places are even worse! PJs coffee is yummy but why is it that every person behind a register at New Orleans International Airport is completely rude? I am not sure- maybe it’s the oil and water they’ve had in the past few years but come on!
The ACME Oyster House – forget about it! If you want something vegetarian, order a bun – wait! You may have to pay $5 for it OR leave there without it because they cannot figure out how to give you plain bread. It is a tough airport and the services are not plentiful. There is a beignet stop inside the airport in case you missed your fix and it looked reasonable. I did not get to try it because we were running behind. As airports go, New Orleans is not the best one for long layovers- get your food on the outside, and definitely leave yourself plenty of time to get through rental car returns and check-in.
