Re: St. Louis Lambert Int. Airport [airline/hub/operations/info]

Listening to KMOX this morning, they had a brief piece with an airline analyst on, who said it's only a matter of time until STL gets a flight to Europe. He specifically mentioned British Airways, Air France, and Lufthansa as potential carriers. Obviously not very specific, but he noted that reduce...

Re: St. Louis Lambert Int. Airport [airline/hub/operations/info]

Do they use their own iron? I've never noticed an Air Canada aircraft at the airport, so far as I can recall. I think I might have seen their ticket counter once . . . many many years ago, when I believe there was also a Lufthansa ticket counter . . . but never an aircraft. Could just be that I'm u...

Starting June 15, Air Canada is starting a 3rd daily flight to Toronto. I didn't really expect that but it is nice to see.

Re: St. Louis Lambert Int. Airport [airline/hub/operations/info]

I find it interesting which routes frequency increases they choose to announce and which ones they don't. They do for Southwest and apparently Frontier, but you don't see them do it for AA, United, Delta unless it is an entirely new route. For example, AA is adding a 3rd flight to Miami a day but th...

Re: 2020 Census

I still can't figure out how the city population keeps decreasing at the rate it is. Is it just South and North city emptying out? With the new residential areas downtown and through the central part I figured it was more than offsetting losses. I guess I was wrong.

How are the gates numbered? It goes from E24 to E29 E31 E33. Why are they skipping numbers?
One side is even, one side is odd. Since T2 only has one side they skip a number. Not sure why they aren't all even in T2 but I guess they decided to do odd for the connector between T2 and the old D.

Re: Lambert St. Louis Int. Airport [airline/hub/operations/info]

I thought B was permanently closed and has been repurposed as exhibition and event space. Isn't that what I said? I really hope that instead of privatizing the airport the City and County leaders realize the value of a joint Port Authority. Would probably have most of the same monetary benefits and...

Re: Lambert St. Louis Int. Airport [airline/hub/operations/info]

I also noticed in the bid out for the local restaurant in T2 it lists E34 and E38 as Southwest but not E36. That seems a little odd to skip one. I'm a little curious on the setup down there. Two gates could be pretty lonely.

There also is a bid out to put another Local Restaurant Concept in T2. It looks like it will be by gate E33. 1468 square feet with the option of 506 square feet of patio space. At the end of the pdf there is a layout for it. It wasn't where I expected but I think it will be good to have that down th...

Charleston is gone also. I am pretty sure all those are seasonal changes based on what was put out when they were added. Charleston hasn't even started. June it begins.
