Hi we have chosen to just pay for a taxi as I have read that the shuttles can wait for a few plane arrivals before heading to the hotels. Plus there is hardly any difference in the cost. Would rather spend the extra hours enjoying our 6 day visit from the UK.

A taxicab will be much quicker than the Airport Shuttle, and unless you are traveling alone will also be less expensive. The fixed taxicab fare from Airport to French Quarter/Central Business District is $33 for 1 or 2 passengers in a cab, $14 per person for more than 2 passengers in a cab.

Even if you're travelling alone, take the cab, it's well worth it to get there in a timely manner.

Thanks folks. Those were quick replies. I will look into cancelling shuttle. Is it easy to get a cab or long queues? Also are prices fixed well more or less.

The airport has taxi queues. Don't get discouraged if the line seems long, it moves quite quickly.

It's a flat rate like Loopwhole described above. No extra charge for luggage. Walk outside from bag claim and join the "queue" ("line" in the US). I've rarely waited more than a couple minutes.

A tip is expected in addition to the fares listed above; many of us hand over $40 and tell the driver to keep the change.
