I'm posting this reminder here because, since DL has a hub at MSP, a bunch of us in this forum have MSP as our home airport. We know this airport, so we aren't likely to routinely check the MSP area on MP. I think it's happening a little earlier than usual this year, but the parking ramps at MSP are starting to be full at times when you would otherwise expect availability. I had to use valet parking (at $40 per day plus tips) because going to Humphrey and taking the light rail would have definitely made me miss the plane. So, but sure to monitor the MSP parking real time website as your travel approaches, check as close as possible to the time you will attempt to enter the parking ramp, and allow lots of extra time. Consider using the light rail line, but remember that it's a long hike from the light rail station to check in counters, elite security or even the skyway security (if no checked luggage). The airport itself didn't seem to be particularly crowded. I love the way the elite security is now exclusively for elites with no more merging with a nonelite line 1-1 at the document checker. There's also some new guaranteed availability plan that's being promoted on the website, but it's expensive and the reserved spaces are not where I prefer to park. OTOH, maybe I should reconsider My theory is that the problem is caused by kettles taking cheap spring break flights who then decide that they can spend the savings on long-duration airport parking. It's frustrating for those who prefer to drive to the airport for short trips and/or travel at unusual times, or who need to stop at the office on the way to/from the airport.
