It seemed to me, a person who has never set foot on BCC grounds and watched a good portion of the tournament on TV, that there wasn't a ton of open space. So even thought it seemed crowded, was it more a case of high density in certain places and very low density in other places? Felt like there we...
13 minute interview with Rhonda. CPE now under $10 (which is what you want to be under) to $9.90 and should continue to drop. Lots of other financial talk. Talked about how they weren't getting the outside money for incentives like other airports for TATL flights. Within the last year the Economic D...

St. Louis airport's growth fuels upgrade

I can't read this because I don't subscribe. Does it say anything different than the post right before yours?
So the former Sheraton City Center hotel (Edison Bros warehouse building) is now the Red Lion Hotel? Looks like it has lousy reviews on TripAdvisor, Google, etc. Has anybody been inside lately? There are some luxury condos on the top floors, right? I can’t imagine an off-brand hotel can be good for...
^I am pretty sure it said seasonal on there when I saw it originally. Not that it really matters at this point either way, haha.
Again I hate to be a downer, I’m trying to be real here but the local population in STL with the financial means to support such service is generally content going to Naples, FL and Lake of the Ozarks not London and Santorini. And the few people that have both the means and desire to travel abroad ...
I was in CWE yesterday and all the scooters were in the street with the bikes. But it probably is easier on side roads to be in the street since cars aren't going as fast.
^I am pretty sure it is a given any announcement would include incentives. No one is arguing that. Every TATL announcement to a mid sized/marginal market does. That is what makes them happen (ie PIT giving 3 million for BA, Nashville giving 1.5-2 mil to BA, and IND giving 5 mil to Delta). If STL pon...
Man, PIT is getting everything these days, it seems. China Eastern just announced seasonal charters between PIT and Shanghai, with the hope of turning those flights into a year-round route. Also of interest: Aer Lingus is supposedly narrowing down their next NA destinations list to two or three can...
Saw this in an article and wanted to post it. Only three players in the field for the PGA Championship were at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis when it last hosted the PGA in 1992. And only 13 players were at Bellerive when it had the BMW Championship in 2008. So it will be a new experience for m...
The airport twitter tweeted out photos of a Qatar A340 on the ground here. I can't find any record of it on flightaware. Anyone know why it is here?
I'll be curious to see what they keep here and move out. I figure they will still base 145s here, which means we will see plenty of those. If they for some reason move everything out then maybe we will see less of those, which wouldn't hurt my feelings any. I also find it interesting Republic who ju...
Per biz journal - Lion's choice is opening in the old Tim Hortons.
https://www.traveldailynews.com/post/trans-states-airlines-announces-additional-flying-for-united I had noticed some of their planes in storage disappearing so this explains it. Trans states is going to do more United flying. Good for Trans States... but I really hope that doesn't mean more 145s for...
I think this is mostly lip service but I wanted to make a note. http://www.espn.com/soccer/columbus-crew-sc/story/3579596/mls-in-ongoing-talks-over-columbus-plans-should-crew-move-to-austin-don-garber?platform=amp&__twitter_impression=true Garber was then asked about St. Louis' prospects, and he not...
Is there a link to this?

On the topic of making a KCRAG account.... everyone who creates an account has to email the admins to get your account approved. So I found this after digging. They should have it easier to find but here for all of you that have been trying to register. So, here's the deal. If you want to join the ...
Please feel free to go to NextKC or KCRAG and post your info,thoughts,opinions. I’d love to see your outsider input. I REALLY don't want to make this a STL vs KC thing because it is gets old and I have no clue why either cares about the other so much, but I have one comment. I and others on here ha...
^ 1.5 million a year for incentives for 2 years. Coming from the State instead of the airport authority (who subsidized their other TATL flights)

Traffic up 7.6% in June
