Why "MSY", you ask?
The official name is the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, so how did they get an airport code of MSY out of that?
Since this is a blog site chock full of valuable yet worthless trivia, I looked it up for you.
The original name of the airport was Moisant Field, named after some long-ago aviator named Moisant, and the airport was near stockyards.... So MSY stands for "Moisant Stock Yards"...
And we land there today. I just hope we don't run over any runaway cows.
