  We always use Flightline First when flying into Lakefront, as they are simply the best. The FBO staff is top notch (HUGE shoutout to Wendy and Gabby for all they do for us!), and their professionalism and friendliness provides a breath of fresh air these days. Our clients, pilots, and flight department are always treated like family. The prices are reasonable, and they are always willing go to above and beyond. Flightline First is definitely one of the best FBO's!
 
From Lawrence Searcy on 15-Jan-2020

 
  Great experience for college playoff and every time I have flown to KNEW. Flightline does an excellent job and treats all the planes the same. Also a word of thanks to the controllers in the tower, on the ground, and at center who did a great job handling all of the traffic in less than easy weather conditions.
 
From B Jastram on 09-Dec-2019

 
  Flew in for Saints game in Single Engine Cessna. Was treated with the same courtesy as if I was in a Jet. Great facility and friendly staff. Reasonable fees with minimal fuel purchase. Will return. Thanks Flightline First!
 
From Jonathan Shorey, N560RK on 27-Feb-2019

 
  Flightline First gets 5 stars, if 6 were an option they would have got that! They treated us like part of the family. They are a great example of what old fashion FBO service is like. Thank you and see you next time around.
 
From Russell Austin on 22-Jan-2019

 
  Had an awesome visit to Flightline First this past weekend for the Saints' playoff game. Line service was prompt and accurate, CSRs were on point. Plenty of hot coffee, candy, and cookies to keep the crews happy. They even had us online right up front on this extremely busy day. We implore you to experience Flightline First for yourself.
 
From Wolfgang Weimer on 11-Jan-2019

 
  Good FBO.
 
From Zac Diamond on 15-Dec-2018

 
  I cannot speak highly enough about the FBO staff and how helpful they were during my alternator failure while flying across the country. After helping diagnose and get me jumped with a GPU they put me in touch with Hammond's Aircraft Maintenance at KHUM. Hammonds Air Service was exceptional and went above and beyond in helping me with my issue. If you're in the NoLA area, tie with Flightline First.
 
From Jeffrey Mirsepasy on 25-Oct-2018

 
  Flew Mooney in from Seattle... Flightline First is one of the best in the nation in terms of trained staff, amenities (food, drinks, pilot needs, bathrooms, etc.). Right up there with Flightcraft at PDX back in the day. This place is what FBO managers should aspire to.
 
From Jere Fountain on 10-Oct-2018

 
  Highly recommended, Thanks to Wendy for getting hotel reservations at a significant discount, upon arrival on 5 October 2018 she had the confirmation information all printed out. My FBO of choice for New Orleans
 
From Bryan Bogle on 04-Sep-2018

 
  Very nice facility and welcoming linemen and staff. My first and only choice whenever I come to New Orleans!
 
From Richard Traunero on 13-Aug-2018

 
  Fantastic facility, very friendly people, excellent service. Definitely recommend.
 
From David McCartney on 14-Jun-2018

 
  I have been into and out of Flightline First numerous times. I feel more at home at this FBO then my own base. Wendy and her team do an amazing job coordinating anything and everything that we need in a timely and professional manner. The Line Staff is always very quick to respond to any needs and I'm never stuck waiting for them to marshal me in to parking or have my airplane ready to go. They do an amazing job! Can't say enough great things about this place!
 
From Bill Gardner on 16-Mar-2018

 
  Beautiful facility with friendly and quality line service guys on our Bonanza flight from Las Vegas both arriving and departing. ATC in and out was terrific. Fuel prices beat the competition. Uber guys found us pretty quickly and ride to the French Quarter hotel was $28 down, and $20 back a few days later. Called and asked for our airplane to be brought out front for our IFR departure about thirty minutes before arriving at the FBO...It wasn't done. Was not the friendliest FBO I've been to, but all in all, we'd return.
 
From Stephen Southworth on 11-Mar-2018

 
  Flightline YES! Enterprise car rental H@// NO. Very good experience at Flightline with ground crew and desk personnel. Very nice FBO. And I try to support local FBOs when I visit a new locale. The only problem was the local Enterprise rental agency. By way of full disclosure, I had requested Enterprise (never again). When we acquired our car the rental contract was blank regarding costs (really?) and the price was suddenly different than that quoted on the phone. It put the FBO personnel in a bad position (not their fault). So definitely solicit Flightline, but avoid the jerks at the local Enterprise agency.
 
From Steve Urban on 01-Mar-2018

 
  So close to the city and so easy to get in and out of. Flightline was great to us from arrival to departure. They gave us Restaurant recommendations, which was fantastic. Fuel was reasonable for a beautiful FBO. Thanks for the Great service.
 
From Stephen Bell on 02-Feb-2018

 
  We have stopped here several times for layovers on long flights. We always received great hospitality and service and excellent rental car arrangements. Be back soon.
 
From Sam Snow on 14-Jul-2017

 
  Friendly staff, very nice facility. Easy airport to get in and out of. If I'm back in New Orleans, I will have no hesitation to come back to Flightline First! PS... Facility charge was waived with fuel and overnight fee was reasonable.
 
From Carl Braddock on 09-Jun-2017

 
  I can't say enough good things about Alexis and her crew! We go to KNEW frequently for business and often these are pop up flights with no advance warning to Alexis. Every time we show up no matter what time day or night these guys are on their game! Great fuel prices, great service and always a pleasure to interact with. I can highly recommend this FBO. 5 stars for sure.
 
From David Higgins on 31-May-2017

 
  Rude, and demanded a $30 ramp fee for stopping on their ramp to drop a PAX, without shutting down the engine. Avoid, them go to the FBO at the other end of the ramp.

Response from Brayton Matthews, General Manager, Flightline First
Mr. Higgins, your passenger enjoyed our facility & free refreshments for at least 15 mins before taking it on himself to exit directly on an active ramp without an escort or permission, despite two jets present with engines running. He then walked across our ramp westward to the terminal area, where he met you. You both returned to the FBO and again exited directly on to the ramp and entered your plane. You took off & returned some 20 mins or so later, at which time you dropped him off and parked your plane in front of our facility and entered. Thereafter followed our brief interaction, which culminated in your angrily throwing $40 on the counter and refusing to take any fuel. I'd been happy to charge you for only as much fuel as you could hold in lieu of the standard $30 ramp fee. I realize that you might not have realized that these actions by your passenger took place. Come visit us again sometime, and let's see if we can't provide a much better experience for you and us both.


 
From Joe Leydon on 31-Jan-2017

 
  Love this FBO everyone is friendly and accommodating we always use Flightline when going into Lakefront.
 
From Scott Taylor on 30-Oct-2016

 
  Flew in on October 25 for a couple days in my T182T. Called ahead and they were waiting to help me. Got UBER to French Quarter $14-15. They had me rental car waiting they next day, as I requested. They had me fueled up when I returned. Facilities are very nice and the hospitality was great as well.
 
From Abe Harper on 21-Oct-2016

 
  This experience and review has come as the result of several dozen visits to Flightline First over the last 6 years. Their attention to the needs and desires of owners, pilots, and travelers is absolutely second to none. I have witnessed and received their excellent service and their desire to go above and beyond the lines of simply attending an FBO. Their professionalism, backed by hospitality, is what keeps us going back, time after time. The interesting thing is that I've noticed they treat pilots in experimentalís the same as a pilot in a Gulfstream 550. If you haven't visited here, and you're going to New Orleans, I highly recommend them. You are certainly missing out if you are landing at KNEW and going somewhere else.
 
From Ed Sanders on 26-Sep-2016

 
  Great service. They had our transportation ready when we landed. Very friendly staff. I would definitely come here again.
 
From Bradley Pierce on 03-Jun-2016

 
  I've visited this FBO more than 100 times over the years and always have fast and friendly service. A top notch group of people - from the line guys to the front desk they're true professionals and treat each visitor as a valued guest. They're also great with quick turns, you can be back in the air 10 mins after touchdown if needed. Highly recommend!
