I have reason to believe we could see a large SW expansion out of STL on the 22nd.

My picks: Indianapolis, Sacramento, and Charlotte. Maybe even Jacksonville.
None of these are showing up on the Southwest route map as of this morning.
I'm interested to see how this plays out with Southwest and if they would be interested in becoming a self operator of Terminal II just for the fact that POTUS admin has made it clear that the Feds wants others to fund infrastructure but will take credit for it while pushing privatization hard. Thi...
The Hawaii and Anchorage comments were interesting but I don't think the MAX planes have the range to make it there from here do they? The 737 MAX variant that SWA is ordering has a maximum range 3500 miles -- which is no where near the range needed for HNL (over 4100). Interestingly ANC is under 3...
Something might be up with Frontier and their service to STL. In an OAG (airline schedule) filing, they are dropping STL-DEN from 2x daily to 1x daily in mid-August and then dropping service altogether in November. All service out of STL? All service to DEN, which is their main hub. I have a hard t...
Due to today's storms, I saw a that a flight aborted a landing and then diverted to Mid-America, then made a quick trip back to Lambert a short while later. Anybody have any idea how often diversions to Mid-America occur? Back in the TWA days, there was at least one flight which diverted to St. Lou...

Speaking of the old ambassadors club in C and the reactivation of C29 and C30, that got me wondering... how likely is it that Delta would move to C in order to open a sky club in the old ambassador's club space? Not likely at all. In 2011ish, Delta was looking at setting up a "SkyClub Lite" on the ...
Europe Flight: The news of the incentives is huge. I want to see if they also have revenue guarantees in place. Also, I believe they are pitching the route as a regional alternative to ORD or DFW. I would really not be surprised if there is some type of KC - STL joint pitch going on. The reason I s...
Speaking of the third floor, what is up there? I remember it vaguely as a kid but I think access is blocked off to it at the moment, right? Anyone have any pics? It's an old TWA Ambassadors Club. Before the club just after security was built, TWA operated two Ambassadors Clubs -- the one upstairs n...
Those comments make sense if the old customs is still usable. Lambert has specifically stated that T2 is our international arrivals area. I sincerely believe they will not reopen the C concourse FIS -- it is small, cramped and requires all passengers to go through TSA screening after customs & immi...
Oh my but that is exciting stuff! That doesn't leave very much closed in C. Just the four gates at the bitter end, which were always a bit quieter anyway as I recall. (The spacings are pretty darn tight.) Actually, there would be 7 more gates if C29 & C30 are reopened - C31. C33 & C35 on the south ...
Thanks Greg. That is what I thought but I wasn't sure. With them being used more I thought maybe they moved the wall beyond them. Have you been back there recently? Is it rough looking? It looks exactly like it did when TWA was here. It's a vast difference from the renovated parts of the concourse.
A couple questions for those of you that fly through C. I haven't been in it in years. How far is it opened to at the moment? I see gates 23/24 are occupied by Frontier/American. I gate map says 27/28 are usable but vacant. I am guessing they are used for overflow once in awhile, but are they open ...
I'd be curious to to see how the current origination numbers compare to Lambert at its peak (or at least pre-9/11 and/or pre- de-hubbing). During the Carl Icahn era (1986-1993), Lambert remained steady at 19-20 million passengers / year. Once Icahn left, TWA ramped up STL and Lambert passenger traf...
Also, our departure out of STL last night (around 9:50 PM CT) was incredibly steep. Also, there were only 35 people on my flight from St Louis to Omaha. I think your second sentence answers the question in the first sentence. Aircraft with limited payload on short flights can take off much faster /...

Just heard that the landlord won't be renewing the leases for CVS or Breve in a month or so. I don't know if CVS planned to stay, but word is that Breve wanted to.
I imagine this is being done so they can mothball the building without requiring on-site security, etc.

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.

So a lot of folks in the area are cashing in big on the Panera purchase. Any chance the CEO, Ron Shaich, who made $390 million might shave off a lousy $4 million per year for the stadium?
Doubtful. He lives in Boston.
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.

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.
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...
