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

STL loses 5 flights with the new Southwest schedule, 1 each to Boston, New Orleans, Orlando, Panama City & San Diego.

Panama City's seasonal service ends for the year with this flight cut.

Re: St Louis City 2017 Mayor's Race

This map says Lyda won Tower Grove South? As a resident of TGS, I'm surprised Tishuara didn't win. Looks like she took our neighbors TGE and Shaw though. Wards 8 & 15 (very roughly Kingshighway on the west, Grand on the east, 44 on the north, Chippewa on the south) were Jones' 2 best wards with 46%...

The primaries are 8 days away. Anyone have the latest poll numbers if there are any
The Missouri Scout poll from last week had Krewson in the low 30s, followed by Reed, French & Jones each around 15.

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

First class is wasted on a flight 4 hours or less... so from STL that is anywhere domestic. Personally, the cost of first class is so ridiculous that, unless you are a rewards members using upgrades or working for a company that gets the upgrades... it is a joke.[\quote] You might want to double ch...

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

I cannot stand flying any other biz class on the "legacy" airlines. While I can understand how some people prefer Southwest over AA / UA / DL when flying in coach, I can't comprehend someone saying that they prefer Southwest to First Class / Business Class on a legacy airline. Even on domestic flig...

There was a ton of Delta talk. Some hub talk that obviously never happened. They were the official airline of the Rams/Cardinals and added destinations (DCA and Raleigh).

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

This is why my biggest wish for Lambert is to move the security checks for A B and C up to the top level. That would be a logisitical nightmare. The entire lower level cannot be made airside -- baggage claim, where passengers can access items legal in checked bags but not legal for carry on, would ...

Anyone have any idea how the City is looking for homicides this month? The winter has been fairly mild so far.
As of the weekly totals posted today, there have been 14 homicides through January 30th.

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

I want to say the heavies always used the gates at the end of C, and that's probably why there was a second customs area there. For the life of me I don't recall how they worked. The customs area was below the terminal level. Each of the customs accessible gates had two sets of doors. Coming off th...

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

If December has the same traffic as November, we'd be just over 4,000 passengers short of 14 million. Now the interesting thing is that STL is in a bit of a donut hole when it comes to airport rankings. As of 2015, we were the 32nd busiest airport at 6.239 million boardings -- 800,000 smaller than ...

Re: Crime Thread

Overall, the crime rate is about half of what it was in 1993.

I think they wrongly interpreted that to mean the homicide rate is half of what it was in 1993.

Dotson's comment was about overall crime rate.. not homicide rate.

Lambert has said 10% growth for most of the year so if you go off last years numbers. 12,752,331 + 1,275,233 (10%) 14,027,564 Obviously, this is a rough...
