Hi has anyone done early walk off on cruise(with your luggage) and made a early flight? I know its a 20 minute ride to the airport from port. Im considering booking a 10:30 flight. thanks

Since procedures vary by cruise line I would ask about this on the cruise line board for the cruise ship you are sailing.

If you dock on time it should be ok- MSY is a teeny tiny airport compared to most big cities and you’ll be headed away from any rush hour traffic at 8am or so. It works on paper but only if the ship is on time.

Don’t do it (my opinion of course). While MSY is a smaller airport, TSA lines can be horrible. My last two time through, once security was 45 minutes+, and the other the Southwest ticket counter had an hour+ wait to check bags. New Orleans is a BIG convention city and that can really impact traffic to the airport and then at the airport.

I wouldn't chance it. Last year in Galveston we had a customs delay and everyone was late getting off the ship. The last person was supposed to be off by 9:30 and I know I didn't get off until 11.

Just took an Uber to MSY (not from a cruise). Line at Southwest was about 200 people deep to check a bag. Uber driver said it had been like that all day, and it was his third run from downtown to the airport.

 

In my mind, I would go later. Better safe than sorry.

Now this post has me questioning a 12:30 pm flight.

 

 

 

12:30 should be fine. It is after the recommended time. Just don’t try and do something else before you go to the airport.

A good rule of thumb is not to post after heavy alcohol consumption.

I think you will be cutting it close, but more doable IMHO than the OP.
