New Terminal update. No completion timeline anymore. Waiting on airlines and environmental impact still.

About a month ago or so they had departures off 24 also, I saw the Alaska San Diego flight take off from it, others did also. It was the first time I have seen it. I see landings on 24 more often (still not a lot obviously)
^^ not arguing for or against this, but would it make sense to consolidate government in Clayton rather than downtown given that Clayton is more central to the merged region? People in West County now think downtown is all of the sudden safe, if they currently don't think it is? People in Denver no...
Someone else mentioned that perception doesn’t fix anything. It fixes a lot. It’s half the work. And the other half can be done by having more resources that this will give us If this plan is adopted what perception changes? People in West County now think downtown is all of the sudden safe, if the...
No matter what our city size ranking is, it doesn't change anything. So we wake up in a few years and live in the 9th biggest city in the country. What does it matter? It doesn't change anything. I couldn't name the 9th biggest city now in the country. New York, LA, Chicago, Houston? after that no c...
EAS service to TBN (Fort Leonard Wood) is changing from Cape Air to Contour and going to be on a E135 starting Feb 12. Quite a change. Press Conference on January 8th. https://www.sustainableozarks.org/news/2018/12/22/media-advisory-contour-airlines-to-announce-jet-service-from-waynesville-st.-rober...
I still think re-entry is the most likely. Then the earnings tax doesn't get as complicated, as well as other things. That said, with the Louisville model the current county pretty much could run the current city however it wanted. Which might tip the scales a bit if that is how the county wants it....
^Framer's a good guy and none of us are born knowing this stuff. Kind of surprising to find the "American dream" can be a carefully engineered nightmare for some. Takes a minute to adjust. But this kind of thing can hurt everybody who's below the local median household income, no matter what color ...
Earth observation company Planet plans to acquire Boundless Spatial Inc., a geospatial software specialist, “to accelerate the adoption by government and enterprise customers of commercial geospatial information services,” said Robbie Schingler, Planet co-founder and chief strategy officer. The term...
Now we know where the new food location will be in T2. They are replacing the chapel with it. https://www.kmov.com/news/airport-chapel-to-relocate-at-lambert-as-officials-look-to/article_ba416f8e-fda0-11e8-ab80-6360a53c4fa6.html Also, it looks like ride share pickups in T2 are moving to over in fron...
CityScene STL is reporting on Twitter, an interesting tidbit regarding the possible resurrection of 300 S. Broadway. This could be big for 2019! CityScene STL‏ @CitySceneSTL ·1 year ago today, I posted this, the Preliminary Preservation Board document that started a debate about new towers and hist...
Also saw that the airport's most recent ASQ (satisfaction ranking) score was at 4.19/5, which is the highest it's ever been, so that's good to see. The discussion about it during the meeting was exhausting. They mulled over wifi for a big chunk of it. It was really weird that they talked about it s...
Watching the meeting from yesterday. More opening T2 to T1 talk. Sounds like it still would take Southwest opening more gates but if they do it would open all the way so you could clear security from T1 if your flight was out of one of the old D gates and cut down on your walk. They are adding a fas...
Anyone know what the anticipated attendance will be? I would guess 20-30K. That means the Dome will be half full. I wonder if the Dome would consider covering the upper deck seating. The place will look very empty otherwise, unless they only sell the lower bowl. The LA team is playing where the Cha...
Sun Country is going from 2x a week to 4x a week to Fort Myers from mid Feb-early May.

Nice to see them expanding already. Spring break shouldn't be too tough to fill seats.
[ CHICAGO MIDWAY: 22 Gates in use ST. LOUIS INTERNATIONAL: 17 Gates in use NASHVILLE INTERNATIONAL: 9 Gates in use I truly believe the airport will not open until mid/end of 2022 if they begin now (which is not going to happen). This is 4 years from now, that is a long time away in the airline indus...
I don't see it lasting more than a few years, but I will enjoy it while it lasts. It gives me and others something to do for a few days a year. As long as it last until the MLS gets here it will be a nice bridge.
Thanks for the info, major for me would be anything above Iceland I suppose. Going off the business community comment, what are the chances that with Bayer purchasing Monsanto a direct to Germany could find it's way back to St. Louis? I also heard an interesting tidbit of information from a longtim...
Anyway lol, let's get back on topic here. Somewhat in line with the 2019 Projections thread, what's the over under on a major transatlantic announcement in 2019 for Lambert? Any chance Southwest further extends into the D Concourse? I think we could see an announcement next year. Major depends on w...
Something I thought about today. The E&A has to approve the privatization plan. Which pretty much means if someone beats out Reed for the BOA Pres they can kill it. That adds another wrinkle to things.
^ If aldermen are so concerned about how a yes vote looks in terms of their reelection then why did 26 of them vote yes the other day? Even the two that voted no offered praise for the plan. SLPS is even on board, and they're the ones losing out on the property taxes. Also, how is this just a "show...
More issues with the new MCI airport. Now all the airlines aren't happy about costs and want another evaluation of them. Southwest even called the mayor about things. The mayor denied they talked which seems weird but it isn't like everyone has been truthful about the issues all along. https://www.k...
all this is just a show- the real votes are next year and i highly doubt that the 14 even ward aldermen will want to touch this before their March 5th re-election, so this will be decided by a different Board of Aldermen and a different President of the Board of Aldermen. I think the final stuff ge...
BLV is looking to expand. 2 new gates. $30 million dollars. Start next Fall and it would take 3 years. Most interesting part to me is the expansion looks to include INTL baggage claim. So it makes me wonder if they have had talks to add a flight to Mexico or the Caribbean. Personally, I want the air...
A significant number of the job cuts, about 10 percent of Bayer’s 118,200 positions worldwide, would be in Germany, officials said.
