I was wondering if you guys would wanna try to meet up at the airport like we did for Fevercon? The hotel we stay at might have a shuttle and we could travel together in a group. Whatcha think?

I'll probably be arriving on Saturday and I'll edit/add my info as soon as I book my flight :th_nod:

I don't have any flight info yet and we'll have to see about the hotel and what type of shuttle service, if any they have ...but it sounds like a good idea :D

Possibly ...but not definite yet.

I hate flying but I have no issues with navigating around airports and travelling ...so I'll meet up with anyone coming in around the same time if they want.

DH and I will be arriving Thursday, staying till Tuesday.

I would suggest booking your hotel rooms now. You can always cxl or change them at no cost, unlike plane tickets.

Make sure you check the hotel's cxlation policy first. Most are 72-24hrs before arrival.

DH has been to NOLA before, and he heavily suggests you take the shuttle booking option when booking your plane tickets. At the shuttle it's close to $20 one way. Cheaper on line when you book your tickets.

Roxy...I think a few ladies have already reserved rooms at some of the local hotels for employee discounts and things like that. We are still not sure what hotel Karen and Leiha has reserved yet. At least I think that's right. :smile:

Roxy
10-21-2010, 11:28 AM
ohh I see thank you!

I'm going to wait to see what Hotel Leiha and Karen reserved for us.

DH has been to NOLA before and highly suggests booking shuttle transportaion prior to arrival (for a cheaper rate).

This is the shuttle system he used. They take you straight to your hotel, and pick you up from your hotel to the airport.

http://www.airportshuttleneworleans.com/

A taxi one way is $33, and they tack on $14 per additional person riding with you.

Airport is roughly 45 min from French Quarter.

I finally had a chance to buy my ticket. I'm coming in Thur night! One thing I missed in ATL was having the time to party with everyone so I definitely want to party Fri night (ok maybe Thur too, LOL). I'm going to try and organize a place those of us who are in on Fri can meet up at.

There's actually a shuttle service at the airport. It's the one I always take when I'm there for K-Con. The price is about the same as a cab ride, they'll take you right to the front door of the hotel, and there's no charge for the first three bags. You just have to make a reservation at least a day in advance. http://www.airportshuttleneworleans.com/

The taxies are expensive. $44 one way, and they charge an extra $25 per person, and for extra luggage. There's a shuttle system that takes you from the airport to your hotel, and picks you up. They're around $36 one way, but includes 3 bags of luggage. Much better then being in a taxi. DH used them when he went to NOLA. I know I posted their link in the NOLA thread under groups...
Ah, Kat's posted them again.

Last time I went to New Orleans I took a taxi and it was fast. In previous cities I used the super shuttle and it took a little longer because of multiple stops, but not too much longer. I would just go with what is most affordable unless you can afford the taxi. :)

Arriving with another at 11 a.m. on Saturday. Who else out there doing the same? Perhaps we can hook up with a taxi.. thought that was the cheaper method? Quicker as well, I believe. anyone out there on this schedule?
