Soo I wasted a bunch of time tonight making this spreadsheet. I will admit I stole the format from someone else doing a different airport. Everything should be the updated schedule for every airline, by day, starting Monday, August 21st. You can easily see how many flights are run a day/week by each...

Starting in November we'll have 8. Starting in March there will be 14.
There are also 19 a week to Toronto now. Plus Vacation express charters (not sure if those count though).
I would have liked to see the residential tower go up but there is a fair amount of residential going in (or just built) just to the north of this and easily walkable. Are there any plans for that grass lot just north of IKEA yet?
I think it would also be fair to assert that since STL currently lacks service to Europe (where there is high demand), I would say getting service to any Asian destination is as pertinent for the airport as landing service to Sioux Falls, SD.

I don't think we will ever see Asia flights unless something drastic changes. PIT is supposedly getting charters from Asia but it has already been pushed back and I really don't see how it is going to work. I really wish Southwest would find a codeshare partner for flights to Europe. That would help...
I thought real grass was a specific necessity to host a FIFA governed (men's) game? Surprising there are so many artificially turfed indoor stadiums on the list. I am guessing they will bring in grass for the WC. They did here for soccer before. Birmingham, Alabama? They have a 70K seat outdoor foo...
Random Observation. Southwest has a departure out of E29 today. It usually goes out of a different gate so I am assuming there was a delay that pushed it to an overflow gate. I just found it interesting they flew out of E29 instead of E36. They haven't seem to have used E36 yet (from what I can tell...
It's even further away from downtown Alton which is a shame Actually it's closer. 3.5 miles now. 2.9 at the new place. (I used Tony's on 3rd Street as downtown). Depending on where you want to go downtown that could change though. Plus, now it's set up at a transit station with the busses. The old ...
I also don't know how MidAmerica does their gates. I don't know if they are per turn or actually leased. I would expect per turn. If Spirit moved in they might have to have gates that board from ground level. All that said, I am sure the airport would find a way to make it work. They aren't really ...
Outside of Spirit, any chance of Volaris or WestJet? There's no passenger customs facility. So no. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Westjet wouldn't need one. All the major airports in Canada are pre cleared. That said they have a codeshare agreement with Delta so I would think they would go into...
Is it open yet?
I really doubt anyone else moves in there. Spirit is the only one I would give any kind of shot to but I think they will start at Lambert whenever they do start. If they do start at Lambert is will be interesting to we how that effects BLV. Would Spirit want to deal with the high landing fees and c...
My other half was at a luncheon on Friday for people in the area getting some kind of awards. Anyways, one of the ladies that got an award was introduced as having her new primary focus being to secure a flight to Europe within the next 12 months. Apparently, there was a large cheer when this was a...

I would say it probably isn't the best for Lambert that Allegiant is at BLV instead of STL but I think it is probably better for the region. Like someone else mentioned, since Allegiant is an ULCC I think that has stimulated flights that wouldn't be bought otherwise. You could argue that Frontier wo...
May numbers are out. Up 75% for May over last May. up 49.71% on the year. Already more than 2015 numbers. It has been impressive how much they have grown the last couple years. They have as shot at 250,000 for the year. Snapshot of things since Allegiant started their current service there. 2012.......
I assume this would be a relocation of their corporate headquarters from 135 N. Meramec in Clayton, which currently has about a quarter of its 80,000 sq. ft. listed for lease as class C office. Was there a rumor at one point about 135 N. Meramec either being reskinned or totally replaced? I vaguely...
As someone who drives, by it every day I think it is kind of blah. I don't dislike it but I also don't really like it. It is kind of just there. I wish there had been more glass, color, texture, shape, or something. I just feel like it is unfinished with the concrete look. Oh well.
FWIW: The Airport was able to deposit $7.7 mil into the Airport Development Fund. These funds may be used for various projects, including the Airline Incentive Program. City/Airport issued $58 million in bonds to finance airfield, terminal, parking projects. https://www.flystl.com/uploads/documents/...
Proximity to Chicago. Seriously... it would essentially be another overflow location for Chicago residents in the south burbs and would still draw from some of markets nearby like Cincinnati, Louisville, Dayton, etc and even some regional markets like Central Illinois (Champaign, Decatur, etc), Eva...
Not sure if this is in the right topic but I found it interesting. It talks about suburbs creating city like landscapes. I would imagine it is like a Streets of St. Charles kind of thing.

^ I meant the appeal of the shark bridge specifically, not the aquarium in general. those 2 million people aren't coming just for the shark bridge. also not saying a shark bridge is a bad idea, just that there must be a better way to design it so that there isn't 4 miles of rope obstructing the vie...
I follow Captain Dave Wallsworth, a pilot for BA, on Twitter (@DaveWallsworth). He tweeted that there is a new A380 route coming, but he is not able to say the route until next week. Lots of people guessing it will be BNA. Hard to believe they'd get an A380 right out of the gate. I can essentially ...
It looks like the parking garage has stairwells going in now or something similar. I didn't get a really good look at it.
Yes, it is frustrating but who knows, maybe they will announce 2 routes for next year. I think they have done it in the past with FLL and New Orleans. I wouldn't say I am holding my breath, especially with the comments of the mayor acting like it is another year away, but it will come. I just think ...
