I thought they lost money because of issues with the company who was operating the services on their behalf?

Years ago (1971), I was late to a flight. I arrived at the airport 4 minutes before the flight time, checked in, ran to the gate, and they reopened the door of the plane for me to get on. The seats on the plane were spacious, the plane was only partially full. What's more, they gave me an actual meal. Of course, it cost quite a bit for the plane ticket.

Times have changed. Now, you arrive at a crowded parking garage or pull up in a taxi or drive share to a crowded entry. You wait in line to check in, wait in line to pass security, wait at the gate, and wait for someone to take five minutes trying to cram a steamer trunk into an overhead. At the destination, you wait in line at the car rental counter or wait for your ride from a rude Uber driver.

Long story short, if the destination is within 200 - 300 miles, I can pack my car, drive there, have my car with me, pay less, arrive at the destination in the same time, and have one tenth the hassle of flying.

I imagine that's why many major airports, not just NO, don't have many short haul carriers anymore.

I really like the pictures of the new airport. Of course, I was around when the old building was built, and at that time, I loved it, too. It seemed to be the most modern looking place I could imagine -- kind of seeing what the future looked like. Go ahead and laugh.

2600/2602 Banks Street

Does anyone know what's going to be at 2600/2602 Banks St, a block from the hospital? It's at the corner where Pharmacy and Agave House are, so I am fairly certain this will also be commercial/eating establishment.

Btw its getting remarkably simple to make this assumption but it works:

Pretty much anything that nola, austin or nashville gets on their own the orher two cities get ... those three cities are on a very similar trajectory

I thought I was the only one that noticed that about New Orleans, Austin and Nashville. I’m wondering what’s going to be the next big tech announcement for New Orleans since Austin got Apple and Nashville was chosen for one of Amazon’s tech offices of 5,000 jobs.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.the...30a4b.amp.html

Idk if anyone posted this but I ran across this article last night that was published in November 2018 and it mentioned a water park for the old sixflags site In the East, that the council member was focusing on to bring there. Anyone hear anything about a company wanting to develop a water park or theme park at the site?

Glad to see we're finally starting to add some color to our bike lanes. Green has become the nationwide standard over the years for pieces of bike lanes that cross vehicle lanes, so if they did it there I doubt they'd ever pick another color, but it would be nice to see it around Canal for sure.

Been noticing the same thing. We landed DXC and Accruent in the past year, so the track record is there.

I never understood why the Six Flags people never added a waterpark there when they took over Jazzland. It would be really popular. Blue Bayou can be a pain to get to from the Northshore.

New Orleans East has always been such a conundrum when it comes to retail.. they have more people than Lake Charles and basically same per capita income yet have very little retail compared to Lake Charles and unlike the rest of the city where the main issues is land availability, theres no such problem over there. Ikea could possible work there since it would be easy access for north shore and gulf coast and still would get Baton Rouge folks although I still think Kenner is better location over all this could work too

What I'd love is for someone like Cedar Point to take over the Six Flags site. Even though their park is relatively isolated, it's like a pilgrimage for theme park enthusiasts. The one in Ohio can't operate in the colder months, but one here could operate year-round. They'd have to build it up larger than the park as it is now and add a large resort hotel.

Adding a water park makes sense too, but again it needs the scale and name recognition to convince people to spend extra time visiting it or to come back to New Orleans.

Essentially we need to be thinking about Orlando and Vegas level offerings. Those areas are bursting at the seems over the summer and New Orleans has plenty of capacity that time of year.

As for IKEA, I think the East makes a lot of sense if only because that offers the most space. It would be hard to find a space large enough in Jefferson Parish, short of taking over a mall site. I12 is just too far from the bulk of the population in the region, but I could see it going along I10 in Gonzales maybe.
