Yeah, just flip it around and I don't see any issues. Plenty of room for parking behind. This should be an easy fix. Mosque's are built to face Mecca correct? Seems like that's the problem - the building can't be flipped. A synagogue or church could certainly be updated to fit onto Jefferson. The b...
I went through not too long ago. About to go through again at the end of the month. They made me open every single kinder surprise eggs I bought for my niece at Cancun airport and take out all the little toys. Luckily I was able to put them all together once I passed the check. Maybe they were look...
I added March to my Departures by Month Spreadsheet. (Airline/City) Notes: I added plane type to all routes. (737 is just 737, I didn't break it out by -700,-800 etc) One thing to realize is that some airlines (I know American does for sure) load a "base schedule" 330 days in advance but don't load...
Cessna 402 Utiliner - That's a tiny plane. Is that private flights (which I thought mostly went out of Spirit of St. Louis or Downtown St. Louis airports) or is that a work-horse for Cape Air? Also, was there a point when Delta briefly surpassed AA? For some reason I thought they had. You remember ...

Gosh, Iceland loves Missouri it seems.

MCI --> @Icelandair
STL --> @wow_air
Not as much as DFW, Wow, Icelandair and American have all launched DFW-KEF flights for next summer.
Per the STL Business Journal, the Wingtips lounge in T2 opens this week.

As of now, the Wingtips lounge does not show up as a Priority Pass lounge.. although I suspect it will be eventually.

Heck, experienced fliers can't tell a 321 from a 737 without looking at the safety card.
Speak for yourself!
The East Fox Homes project is complete.

I've also wondered what the situation is to use them?
Strong SSW or NNE winds is the only reason 6/24 would be used. We have enough capacity in the typical wind directions that 6/24 would not be needed even if a runway was out of service.

I typically fly United, but I DESPISE the ERJ 145, so I am looking at other airlines from STL to the NYC airports.
In terms of 50 seat jets, the ERJ145 is VASTLY superior to the CRJ-200.
As best as I can count, AA has 14 RON (remain overnight) aircraft on a typical weekday in STL - 3xM80, 3x738, 3x319, 2xE75, 2xER4, 1xCR9. Each destination has at least 1 RON -- ORD has 3, DFW & CLT each have 2. The former USAirways management that took over following the merger instituted more early...
Looking at the photos available on the PD website, the firetruck that was part of the collapse is Engine 14. I believe this is a 2000 Spartan / Smeal apparatus so it's already 17 years old. That's not exactly outdated when it comes to fire apparatus, but yeah... it would probably be nice if they ca...

If we did that, would it make sense to then connect E to C and tear down D? How many gates do you guys expect we'd lose?
Doing so would make the south side of C unusable.

The problem is that Southwest probably needs to move to C and American to E.
Never going to happen. AA is not going to give up the Admirals Club when there is no possibility of an equivalent in T2.
I also saw this today. The 2 pasta houses in the airport are now Priority Pass Restaurants. "Well, Priority Pass has just announced their newest location in the US. Specifically. St. Louis Airport is getting two Priority Pass restaurants — The Pasta House in Terminal 1, and The Pasta House and Schl...
I have been wondering what deadheading means! Thanks. Would an airline take into account where someone lives vs their base. Lets say someone lives in Austin and are based in Dallas. They need to deadhead someone in Austin, would they try to make it be a person living in Austin or do they not really...
No, probably not. There are many flight attendants and pilots who live in St Louis that work for other airlines and commute. From my impressions, commuting is not a daunting task and most are paid to do it. Pilots and flight attendants are NOT paid to commute from where they live to their base city...

Really makes one miss the days of flying non-stop to Hawaii.
But wasn't that for just a while during the TWA days?
TWA started STL-HNL in 1987. With a few exceptions, the service continued until AA dismantled the STL hub.

Southwest officially announced the addition of Hawaii flights today. They have not, however, identified where they'll be flying from.
They said that flights would be from California only, to start.
^ 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...
This caught me off guard. I would think they would want to stay in A with United. I wonder if this means they will be adding destinations? I figured they would just add A17 but it already has a loading bridge. Unless it needs a new bridge for some reason. Gate A9 is stripped on the tarmac, but lack...

Looks like Alaska now has cut PDX from STL/MCI/OMA from December to mid March. It had just been cut for December. I also noticed Skywest is flying it again now. Things with Horizon must be bad. Hopefully they get it straightened out soon.
Horizon is dealing with significant pilot shortages.

I will continue taking my LCC business to Southwest.
Southwest is no longer a low-cost carrier... either in terms of their fares (which they have done a great job of making people think their fares are lower than other airlines, but that's not true) or their costs.
Southwest just returned 2 pairs of MEX slots to the Department of Transportation. I'd say if they can't get MEX to work from Houston, it's not going to happen from STL.
