There are venues both pre- and post-security, so even the general public can come and enjoy the shows. Performances are held throughout the week, so, whether your flight is on a Tuesday or a Thursday, you can expect to be greeted by a bit of jazz that would make Louis Armstrong himself proud.
  • Travelers should also note that, even though the streetcars don’t connect to the airport, they remain a great and historic way to go from downtown to other areas of New Orleans. Additionally, the street cars are an affordable and efficient means of transport, so what better way could there be to explore New Orleans?

Pros: "Everything is perfect"

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."

Cons: "Going to Delta today to see if they can help me...we'll see!"

Pros: "Early boarding for Seniors"
Cons: "Limited food"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."

Pros: "We finally got home"

Cons: "Due to waiting so long on the tarmac, I almost missed my ground connection. Also, two persons with impaired mobility were deplaned while nearly all the remaining passengers waited. It has been my experience in the past that those with impaired mobility are assisted in deplaning AFTER the other passengers have deplaned. This only makes sense. Also, baggage handling was slow compared with my previous experiences. Seemed to be a hard landing."

Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."

Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"

Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."

Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"

Pros: "The flight was convertible and pilot kept updating why the ride was rough, which I appreciated."

Pros: "I liked everything from boarding to landing in Richmond ."

Pros: "Confort"

Pros: "It did not crash"
Cons: "Delays, baggage loss, how the Airline dealt with both."

Cons: "Bumpy landing in Charlotte. But it was windy and raining."

Cons: "Never got a complimentary beverage. The cart only delivered to some of the rows"

Cons: "I was trying to check two bags, and I get three free bags. My one bag was my wife's bike in a case and it as 60 pounds and the other was a suitcase that was only 20. They made us take stuff out of the bike case and move it to the suitcase to get it below 50 pounds. Ridiculously nitpicky. It's the same overall weight..."

Cons: "Free WiFi kn the plane was hardly working even over US mainland, before it list connection with outside internet over ocean. But it is something I do not care much about."

Cons: "It sucked in many ways. But that wasn't united's fault. The weather was threatening lightning in Denver and of course because of that the world stops turning."

Pros: "One attendant did it all. And very well. Impressive."
Cons: "More snack options."

Pros: "I liked the tv and movie options on the United app but thought the movie selection could have been better."

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "Not here as long as the last place but was still teribly confusing. The airport is not very new user friendly. I had to ask ppl multiple times where gates were and issues with time changes etc. Was pretty nerve wracking for a first time traveller to the states."

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "the plane's seating"

Pros: "Everything from ticketing to deplaning was smooth and professional."

Cons: "I was informed at check in that I could not bring a carry on bag. Therefore, I had to pay to check my bag. However, all other passengers on the plane brought carry on bags. Then, upon arrival in New Orleans, my bag failed to arrive. My bag was still in Chicago."

Pros: "Wish all the major airlines would have more flight options from ORD and MSY, but all went well"
Cons: "Fast and painless"

Pros: "Ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The child behind me kicking me"

Pros: "The gate at the Chicago airport was well designed. There was a line for each boarding group, and you could line up early. This is particularly effective for some Asian flights, which can sometimes be chaotic with many different nationalities all lining up."

Cons: "I have arthritis (walk with a cane) and didn't have enough leg room....hated being in a middle seat....and due to that could not stand in flight to stretch legs. Also the crew on the way to New York made sure I had a wheelchair to cross the airport in Chicago and not so in New Orleans...had to make a visit to the emergency room after getting home and be off work for 5 days due to the condition of my leg after the walk across the airport."

Pros: "United payed for the room and 20 bucks for food."
Cons: "Late. Missed the connection to Gillette and had to stay overnight."

Pros: "Very smooth flight and good seat"

Cons: "I had to be in New Orleans at 12:00am so I could arrive home for an important interview on Monday morning.. My trip was cancelled and I had no knowledge of this until my arrival to the airport.. I had to pay an additional 75.00 to go back to Racine then another 75.00 to head back the next morning. When i arrived to New Orleans I was charged an additional 30.00 dollars for parking!"

Pros: "Glad you didn't give priority to those with other designations like priority plus etc"

Cons: "Plane late leaving Chicago due to no pilot."

Pros: "Crew was polite and responsive."
Cons: "Flight was extremely delayed because of missing flight crew and/or pilot. Boarding announcements were very hard to follow because of overlapping PA systems at the gate. We sat at the gate for a long time before take off, which was uncomfortable because the seats are cramped for anyone above average height and I could not put my seat back or put my headrest up."

Pros: "Free snacks and we arrived 30 mind early"

Pros: "The flight attendants."

Pros: "Great"

Cons: "Lost my luggage"

Cons: "There is delay in both airport for security check ! No more people to do it ! 1 hour waiting in line was very dissappointed"

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "Every one was friendly. The plane was clean"

Cons: "They didn't have wifi"

Pros: "Was never in Chicago."
Cons: "Was never in Chicago but my stuff was."

Pros: "Perfect, but I did upgrade to United's business plus."

Pros: "Aisle seat."
Cons: "They made my dad check his bag even though there was space."

Cons: "I was informed today that one of my checked bags was picked up by another customer who eventually realized it was not her bag. She brought it back to the airport and refused to turn over the bag until the airport compensated her. (How this happened I have no idea because I stood right by the entrance of the baggage claim and never saw the bag come out). The customer refused to return the bag until the police became involved at which point she agreed to write a note confirmed she did not steal anything. The bag then needs to be sent to me in 2 days and I'll have to verify myself that indeed nothing was taken from the bag. I'm very concerned how this individual came to be in possession of my bag considering, again, I stood right at the entrance of the baggage claim conveyor belt from the time it started to when it ended. As a result, this experience really made me feel frustrated and violated."

Pros: "The boarding process and on time service"
Cons: "Terrible landing and crew in first class wasn't proactive. Pain more attention to his jump seat colleague"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Head rests"

Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight was on time"
Cons: "Drunken birthday party on board was never asked to stop whooping and hollering and was actually encouraged by the flight attendant who asked passengers to cheer and yell multiple times. Additionally, when they did not stop drinking their own alcohol after the flight attendants asked all passengers to refrain from doing so due to FAA regulations, nobody asked them specifically to stop. Gate change was not well-communicated, and no audible boarding announcements were made. The gate attendants failed to put any information about the flight or boarding on the gate screen intended for this purpose."

Cons: "The plan was dirty. They need to make sure they wipe down everything. It gross"

Pros: "No in flight issues. Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "The exorbitant charge for a carry-on of practically any size. Multiple delays and poor communication. Gate changes four times then an engine issue."

Cons: "The air plane was late by three hours and nobody including the crew or the pilot seem to know why the aircraft was late."

Pros: "Boarding on time and relatively quick"
Cons: "With all the separate charges for seats, carry ons, etc. it’s really not a savings. Also, not even being offered a glass of water? That’s carrying bare bones too far."

Cons: "They charge for water. The seats don’t recline."

Pros: "Spirit website is like a child built it and maintains it. Grammar errors and hard to get a humanity can understand if you call"

Cons: "OTHER AIRLINES HAVE A 50# LIMIT. OUR BAG COST US ABOUT $30 TO BEGIN WITH. THEN THE COUNTER AGENT SAID OUR BAG WEIGHED 48#, WHICH COST US ANOTHER $38. THAT WAS AFTER I STUPIDLY SUBSCRIBED T THE $9 CLUB. KEEP THE MONEY. I WILL NEVER DARKEN YOUR GATE AGAIN."

Pros: "Change of gate wasn't fun but it was handled professional."

Pros: "Was a little anxious earlier in the week after hearing about all of the flight cancellations with Spirit, but it worked out well for my husband and I."
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "CANCELLED. NO Assistance with rebook. Refund and you are on your own. Found out later they were have a pilot strike. They didn't disclose that and should have, in my opinion. I had the same exact thing happen on my return flight. Cancelled. No assistance with rebook. Had they been honest and straight forward I could have made proper accomdations for my return flight home. Instead a got the screw job TWICE. I understand that it is not in their control of the pilot strike. But good service would disclose that information as to not cause additional problems. Spirit sucks. Everyone knows that. But they don't have to screw people over and more then already do"

Cons: "An hour late, only food had to be purchased, uncomfortable non reclining seats."

Pros: "Took off on time, no issues. Flight was good - take offs and landings were great. There was lots of room for our carry ons and personal items because they charge for luggage!"
Cons: "I was worried about the baggage. We each took a backpack and then we checked some bags. We had no issues. I did not see anyone stopped for their "personal Item" being too large."

Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "Gate changed with no announcement. Also plane over 1/2 hour late with no announcement from staff."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The airplane was dirty. And, a woman next to me asked for some water and the flight attendant says, "$3 for a bottle." This is very disrespectful and classist. Not everyone has $3, and I could tell that she didn't. Also, the plane made a terribly loud noise. I feared for my life! The flight was delayed but the crew did not give us updates.... We simply waited. And waited."

Pros: "Horrible. They charged me twice. Never again."

Pros: "The price was great-- keep these great prices at around $120 for round trip, and I will use you All THE TIME!!"

Pros: "The staff and passengers were laid back and pleasant."
Cons: "They also were a bit loud. "Guess you can't have everything. I paid baggage fee but saw passengers on the plane with "carry-ons" that were the same size as my checked bag."

Pros: "Nothing seems nice I was supposed to be on the same flight the day before and it was the airline's fault for not managing their staffing schedule! Completely incompetent for them not to have a pilot scheduled!"

Pros: "You get what you pay for. But $290 for two people round trip from New Orleans to Chicago with one checked bag is unbeatable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. I hate spirit. Never again."

Pros: "The flight was inexpensive, on time, and pleasant."
Cons: "The baggage fees."

Cons: "Lost my luggage. Very little room and seats did not recline."

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "I liked the fact that the aircraft was new. I liked how cheap the fare was. I liked how prompt they were in boarding."
Cons: "You have to pay for EVERYTHING! !!"

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Expensive bag check fees of $52 across the board, even though signs listed a variable scale based on weight that would have been cheaper. Apparently that's only available if you check in early and weigh your bags yourself or something, IDK..."

Cons: "head rest added on seat very uncomfortable + seat itself is uncomfortable; other passengers allowed to sit in 1st row without paying for it."

Pros: "Staff on the plane was fine. Nice people."
Cons: "The staff responsible for getting the plane boarded were some of the rudest people I have ever encountered. Yelling at customers, threatening to delay the boarding process, and threatening to not board the plane all because the terminal is the worst built terminal I've ever been in. The customers were being patient, and the Spirit employees just kept yelling at us. One of the worst flying experiences I have ever had. Never ever will I choose Spirit in the interest of saving a couple of bucks. Not. Worth. It."

Pros: "They play good 'on hold' songs."
Cons: "Spirit cancelled my flight to New Orleans without informing me until I got to the self check in. My two options according to the baggage claim workers and customer service on the phone were to get my money back or take their Thursday flight. I was supposed to fly home from New Orleans on Wednesday. From there, they narrowed my two choices down to just one, get my money back. As a result, I had to spend an extra $300 to get to New Orleans that day through another airline. According to Spirit, there was bad weather which is why the flight must be cancelled, funny, I made it to New Orleans that day with American Airlines. They never offered to compensate me, help me find tickets through another airline, or even an apology. I will never fly Spirit again in my life."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight canceled the day off for no reason had to spend 399 to catch s fought home"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were not assigned a seat and had to wait at the gate until everybody got in the plane and they gave us the last seats and were seated separately, although there were 2 seats available next to my friend i was traveling with, but we were told it was a full flight. The flight attendant told us we could switch after the seat belt sign came off, but after that we were told no and one of them was not very polite. Terrible. Hope not to fly with spirit airlines ever again!! I dont want to talk about the baggage also, those people only know how to be rude and don't explain anything!"

Pros: "Had issues with online check in. Had to call customer service. On hold 45 mins. Agent refused to take my info for return trip. Got to airport - no record of my paying for seat or carry-on. Agent rude. Informed me I had purchased seat/carry on for RETURN but not for first leg. Boarding nightmare. Plane smelled of old beer and vomit. Ppl in aisles with seat assignments for Row 31. Plane only had 30 rows. Return flight: got to airport - no record of my return flight. Had to be stand by for an oversold fight. There were at least 8 of us in exactly same situation. Gate crew was wonderful but frustrated - says it happens ALL the time. Will never fly Spirit again..."
Cons: "Paying for seat and carry-on. Once those fees were added to original cost of tickets, there was no savings. This, combined with above issues, clinched it for me, and I will use major carriers for all future flights."

Cons: "Too many hidden fees! I didn't know I had to pay for my carry-on. The flight was at 6:20am, so I had to pay for a Super Shuttle, since the Metro wasn't open yet. I should have just flown the slightly more expensive United flight, since they ended up costing the same in the end. Then, the flight attendants were unfriendly, like old school principals. My seat didn't recline AND was tiny. NO entertainment whatsoever - not even a magazine. And while I didn't mind (so much) the lack of in-flight beverage service, the fact that Spirit sells Oodles of Noodes - that's right, OODLES OF NOODLES - on the flight (and for $3.50!) was simply too much. I'll never fly Spirit again. Never."

Pros: "Landing was smoothe"
Cons: "They say they have low fares but that is because you have to pay for literally everything!!!!"

Cons: "2 hrs delay and poor food selection"

Pros: "It was a smooth flight and everything was on time. My seat was not uncomfortable."

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The flight was on-time"
Cons: "Arrived at airport over 2 hours early. Did pre-check in for flight and luggage. Had to wait in line almost an hour to tag luggage. (Many people were frantic in line re: not getting to flight on time) TSA line was all the way down airport. Knew I would not make flight. NO agent to help me while I waited. Tried calling Spirit no-one could help. Got to counter with less than 15 minutes to boarding time. Supervisor was extremely rude and said there was nothing she could do re: TSA line. Said that if I didn't make flight I could get a later flight or pay extra for something different. Went to TSA line and no-one could help. Saw another Spirit rep, while in TSA line. she rudely said "no-way!" and walked away.. Finally, I "seriously" begged and cut in TSA line. Ran. Made it to gate for final boarding call!!!"

Pros: "The flight wasn't full"
Cons: "Security line at ohare was extremely long"

Pros: "Excellent flight!"

Pros: "The flight was good. I wish there had been a little more room but I will definitely fuse Spirit again if the flight is the right price"

Pros: "I appreciate that they do not want to add cost to all by providing "extras'...."
Cons: "But, that said, a little drink and snack could hardly cost that much more. The cost of this flight was not so cheap to support the "no frills" business model. Cost of baggage was unreasonably high and paying for seats is not exactly customer friendly. Maybe that just offsets the cost of those who get the $49 fares??"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "The service was absolutely horrible. For a cheap flight I guess u get cheap service."

Pros: "Make sure if you use a secondary ticketing company that you look into all the the details on the actual site for the airline your ticket comes from since i bought a flight and was not informed it did not include baggage until checking in. They charged me an outrageous amt for a bag with barely 20 lbs in it."
Cons: "Not knowing that baggage was not included until getting to the checkin counter and thn being charged a price that was twice the ticket for the under weight bag. The csr And crew were wondeful. Also the flight was more the thirty minutes late."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Staff were efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Not enough room and seats don't lay back at all. The cushions were so minimal that my tail end got sore sitting in the same spot for hours. Terrible. I won't fly Spirit again."

Cons: "I don't like Spirit's luggage policy. It looks like Airline pushes you to fly with empty hands"

Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived earlier than scheduled. would definitely fly Spirit again!"

Pros: "On the way to mke they charged us 200$ for carry ons. On the way back, they cancelled our flight and refused to put us on another until 3 days later. They refunded us $350 and we had to pay another $500 to book another flight home. Horrible customer service. Kayak shoukd not work with them."
