SWA is developing a new app call 'heartbeat." It's purpose is to streamline wait times for passengers from terminal arrival to the gate. They are conducting the beta testing for the app in StL because Lambert is one of the few airports where SWA has their own terminal. Wow that is cool. Is there an...
I know we are trying to keep this as just STL but because this probably had a direct impact on us and is airport related, I am going to post it in here. Too bad they didn't stop him sooner. Maybe we would have gotten the flight instead. Nashville Airport CEO fired. - The board’s complaints about Wig...
I get there about an hour before my flight and rarely have issues. I am tsa pre but normally the normal security line isn't bad either. I don't travel in the morning often though. That is when I would guess it is the worst. I got back tonight at 6 and the concourse was pretty full. I didn't check se...
Also saw in checking up possible flights on Southwest for travel noticed they show on map nonstop from here to Orange County again. had to look and it seems they are running it for Thanksgiving time. I know the reason it ended was a slot issue there, but wonder how they juggled that for that week. ...
Quite frankly, I think you are going to see both BA and Lufthansa entering the market fairly soon. Demand for London and Frankfurt is ascending with recent STL companies being acquired. I think it will be Condor before Lufthansa. That seems to be they way things go. BA and Condor follow each other ...
Guessing most likely time they formally start booking will be their next schedule extension. Interesting to see how its timed and how easy connections would be to/from here to these flights, or if any are same plane service. Wonder if them starting nonstop from here to Sacramento and San Jose next ...
Have they announced which airports in Hawaii they'll be serving? Los Angeles Times is stating that service will be to Honolulu, Kona and Kauai. At Beat of Hawaii, we continue to expect services to start with San Diego, Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento and San Jose. http://beatofhawaii.com/southwest...
I'd think the next place they'd open a Shake Shack would be far West County. Chesterfield Valley seems like the most logical candidate. I don't know. His whole thing is that it's not fast food, but fine casual where you have to get out of the car and interact with people to get it. That description...
^ the baggage claim area and pre security downstairs in T1 could use a face lift. It just seems kind of dreary. Not really sure how to fix it though. It is too bad there aren't really any windows to brighten it up. The baggage claim areas and the pre-security areas in T1 *WERE* updated in the renov...
September numbers would show the negative impacts from the hurricanes which could have an effect on local numbers to a lesser extent. And October on will have the effect of the big fleet retirement which will only recover late next spring. The fleet issue is likely why there isn't too much new flig...
I heard rumor from someone that they are also putting one (or thinking of putting one) in the new ballpark village. Not sure how much truth there is to it though. I am curious if anyone else has heard this.
August numbers finally out.

Up 7.7% for the month
Up 6.4% for the year.

Aircraft departures up 10.8% for the month.

Almost to 10 mil for the year already.

Wonder if there is a plan to address the congestion issues popping up with T2? Since it is only going to get worse over time.. Though to be honest these are the good sort of problems to have these days. Interesting looking at the PDEW numbers and note how much 1st quarter does drop off relative to ...
T2 baggage claim was an absolute zoo yesterday. They need to expand the baggage claim area with at least one more carousel but preferably two. Agreed. Maybe they could expand it as well with a larger international arrivals area? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I arrived around 8:30pm last night ...
I flew SW Airlines from Chicago into gate E38 pretty far down the old D Concourse. It was far enough that we used the East/West people mover before the first turn. I looked West and saw no gates at all. Can one now walk all the way down to Terminal 1 Concourse C from Terminal 2? I am pretty sure it...
According to the website https://www.zza-pizza.com is going to be going into this building.
I really think it’s between St Louis and Detroit. Except STL IMO has much more to offer. Again, I think One ATT Center is what sets St Louis apart. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk BUT... our bid won't include the AT&T Center if the report from yesterday is true. The KMOX article (I posted earlie...

I added the numbers for the last 4 quarters on this so you can see what the last year has looked like.
A quote from a different message board. --- Nope haha, I have no affiliation with Spirit. All I know was that the new hire class at Spirit was told the LAX base will be announced this coming Tuesday, and another person mentioned that IND, STL, and UIO routes are supposed to begin next year. Keep in ...
A good summery of things so far. Talks about them picking both sides of the river for the bid

----EDIT---- I originally used the wrong one. It has been updated. New PDEW data is out. I made a chart. This is only for Jan-March 2017 so keep the months in mind when looking at it. The PBI makes a lot more sense after looking at this. I will add in the previous quarters later. I just don't have t...
As money isn't produced out of thin air - what are the downsides to privatization? All I hear is that privatization would generate a huge chunk of cash for the city, that the new owner will plow in lots of money to improve the airport, and presumable the new owner will make money on top of that in ...

Update from KMOX.

Headline is pretty misleading. They talk to Joe Buck in the audio clip. Also some other general updates.
