I think you are missing the point. If New Orleans was such a global draw you would have foreign carriers flying in from major foreign destinations.

What about San Diego? Lots of people around the world want to visit there. But the only overseas flights offered are to Japan and England. Of course, it is expanding, and I expect New Orleans' airport to do the same, but I disagree. Just because it doesn't offer many straight nonstop flights from other cities does not mean that people from around the world don't fly in with a stop to see it.

Well obviously there are some international visitors but using the term "Global" is extreme. A global city is how connected that city is to the rest of the world and I'm sorry but only having a flight to Toronto ends this debate. You'll find international visitors in most cities in the US of New Orleans size but I wouldn't go as far to call the locations "Global".

I think the better term is international recognition if that is what the OP is trying to debate.

I like Cincinnati and its architecture and hills and other scenery, but the last time I was there, the place seemed really dead.

That was over 6 years ago...

Why would Cincinnati be on high profile?

Right and Chiquita pulled up stakes and dumped Cincy for Charlotte for that very reason.

^ Not the whole story... Although CVG's downsizing was a factor in Chiquita's move to Charlotte, that was only part of the picture. First, Chiquita's top management (transplanted from NYC via a buyout by a Cincinnati financier) never wanted to be in the city to begin with; second, they wanted to be nearer their Latin-American vendors; and third, Charlotte bribed them handsomely to make their move, more so than Cincinnati was willing to bribe them to stay. Today, Chiquita's still experiencing major problems and its relationship with Charlotte isn't a comfortable one.

"How can New Orleans be more internationally recognized than ... Cincinnati?" "How can Charleston have more prestige than... Chattanooga?" "Why do people like Savannah more than... Fayetteville?" "Why do people want to visit New York more than... St. Louis?"

City Data has lots of threads like these. Some posters might want to remember that we do live on Earth. Remember Earth? The planet with an atmosphere and one moon? The one in which French fries are generally considered more fun than saltines? That Earth?

New Orleans: one of the prettiest and most historic cities in N. America, with perhaps the best food in the country (not just fancy restaurants where you pay $250 + wine and tip, but can shop in real food shops, bakeries, cafes, and get a nice po-boy on almost every block.

Cincinnati: a bland Middle American city on the border of the Middle West and South, with Midwestern charm and Southern social progress. You come to Cincinnati if you want to work for P&G and to contemplate the city's "enormous potential" over a plate of sausages or a tub of hot wings.

Come back to Earth, folks. Please.
