Lafayette Regional Airport (KLFT) appears to be understaffed

8:11 p.m. CDT June 30, 2014

Arriving home from a recent trip, I had a chance to see how the Lafayette airport operates.

We arrived with a drizzle in the air. Our plane pulled up to the terminal and did not park at one of the jetways. I assumed they were all full with other flights and we were let out on the tarmac.

My friend, who has some walking issues, had to depart on very steep stairs and then again walk up stairs back into the terminal. Looking over at the other gates there was not another plane in sight.

I was told that there was no operator to run the jetways available; therefore, the gates that Lafayette has are not even being used. Why do we need more gates if we don't have personnel to man the ones we do have?

Also, it took 30 minutes for baggage claim. Is anyone working at the airport that we do have?
