According to the Charleston Airport twitter feed STL-CHS has already been upgraded to daily nonstop for the summer. It was just supposed to be Sat/Sun.

The article they put out about March passenger numbers said it was daily but I thought it was a typo since it hadn't been announced as daily yet.
They did just update their Facebook profile picture on Wednesday. So they at least seem to be semi active. Hopefully the operating party is announced soon.
I find this quote from Slay as Biz Journals article stating that city could gain millions more is laughable considering that any private operate is going to seek a decent return on investment. The current director has done a pretty good job of cutting/controlling costs after Lambert was dehubbed an...
The U.S. Transportation Department said on Monday it has granted preliminary approval to St. Louis to explore putting its city-owned airport under private management.

As much as I would love to see more Delta here, I don't think we will. I really don't see them adding anymore routes to/from STL, as they really never took hold of #2 here for very long after American dehubbed, while in Kansas City they are a strong #2. Any hope for additional BOS service will prob...
Also, I found a thread on airliners.net (http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1356667&p=19385121&hilit=Kansas+City+Airport#p19385121) that talks about the "innapropriate" use of RJ's on lengthy routes. Pretty much all UAL routes from STL except ORD get the bashing. They even say St Lo...
Delta is adding a handful of new non stops from Boston. Kansas City is getting one but not us...
JAX/BUF/AUS are some others. Nashville is getting a 2nd daily.

One of these days we will get it (or someone else besides Southwest)... hopefully...
Here is an interesting picture of the aviation and road noise for the area from the US Dept of Transportation. At this link, you can put in an exact address to get a zoomed in reading on the noise at your house. https://maps.bts.dot.gov/MapGallery/map.html?webmap=27e3d934d04b4a699c07afd08fc7f3f9 ht...
I am not sure how they would fit a stadium in by westport or the galleria, there isn't enough room in my opinion. You could MAYBE fit it in by the Galleria but I think there is no way it would actually ever happen. It already is a mess with traffic in Brentwood so I can't see any way a stadium would...
The airport might start charging for parking. I think $3 a day isn't crazy and worth trying out.

UAL has resumed their mainline service from STL to EWR. The rotation is on 738s and A320s. I believe they stay around until early September.
I think they run mainline to Denver and Chicago in the winter and switch them to SFO and EWR in the summer.
Looks like Frontier is adding a 2nd daily flight to Orlando starting in mid October.
Looking at this upcoming Monday.

There are 9 flights that leave around 1:30

10 that leave around 3:30.

I don't know if those continue in your data for summer though.

Those aren't full but a pretty good number, for the gates they have now.

I was under the impression that had 6 banks going.
I can see this being the case. I actually made a spreadsheet showing the Southwest Departures and Arrivals to illustrate patterns. Unfortunately I don't see any way to upload it here since it does show that as much as Southwest says they don't do banked hub operations, they definitely operate a hub...
Not sure if this is where this should go. But tweet about an article in the Tampa Bay paper about our transit system. It might be a letter to the editor/sound off section but I thought it was interesting.

I think they were at 100 during the summer last year. This year they are at 109. So it is plus 9. Still, 4 gates seems like overkill though. The only thing I can think of is they have a couple banks they want to load up on flights, instead of spreading them out over the day.
So what's the deal with gate E2? The wiki page says it hasn't been used since December. Is this due to the relative inconvenience of its location on the terminal or just lack of need? I don't even think it exists anymore. I think it was too hard to get back into it with E4 in use. Especially, with ...

17 gates will put us in the top 10 Southwest markets will it not? The number of gates is never reliably used as a measure of an airline's size. This lists the top 10 markets in 2016 and gates they used. So Greg is correct. We will be at 109 and 17 gates in summer but Dallas for example was 18 gates...
No; the 757 needs a Code D gate, the 787 needs a Code E gate. Thanks for the info! In other news, I was looking through the March Airport Commission meeting. http://www.flystl.com/uploads/documents/public-notices-and-reports/2017-March-Minutes.pdf It says Southwest will be using 17 gates. That mean...
^oh yes. I have seen those on flightaware. duh. Thanks for the reminder. Can a gate that can handle a 757, handle a 787? I am not sure on height differences off the ground,etc.

I guess they could add jetway that fits anywhere though.
Gate E29 is temporarily being used by SWA for outbound flights. The gate does not has permanent boarding number towers at it (only temporary ones) and according to SWA - they will lose this gate when they move into the new gates on the old (now new) E concourse. E31 is permanent for them. E29 is fo...
^if BA started here would they just use the AA Lounge, since they are partners?
