Yes I did it’s not very clear. It seems to indicate there is a tax free shop, but not a duty free shop.

Hence my post.

No duty free that I know of as we don't have very many direct international flights. There is a pop-up booze shop located in baggage claim, however.

Googling around, agree it is confusing. Maybe a previous UK visitor can clarify. There is a short blurb here stating that there is no Duty Free shops at the airport:

But, you can get a refund for any sales tax paid in Louisiana at several sites provided you have the proper paperwork. See:
