I agree, but I think it's also evidence that in the eyes of the rest of the country, St. Louis is pretty much dismissed as a real contender (the recent Inc. and NYTimes editorials not withstanding, obviously). I've seen the Explore St. Louis video from last year circulating around social media late...
Over the last couple years I've noticed that the LED lights they installed during the renovations are rarely on whenever I fly. Am I just really unlucky or have they stopped using them?
^ ??? i think the proposals that are currently being put together by the STL Eco Devo partnership are a whole lot better than nothing. i think they're actually going to be pretty damn good. not sure why/how you think a random group of urbanstl readers are going to put together something realistic/p...
A couple ideas I had..... 1. A amzn2STL grassroots demonstration/event. Maybe a couple food trucks, some music, and some speeches by our biggest city boosters. Even if it only draws a couple hundred people it would be good publicity as something home grown and authentic. 2. An UrbanSTL alternative p...
Not STL related, but I had the opportunity to fly Spirit today ORD-LGA. That airline is trash. They can stay FAR away from St. Louis.

Summary of what they said?
2026 WC announced 49 venues across US/Canada/Mexico. Out of the 37 venues in USA, STL is snubbed. Really pathetic how badly our civic leadership has failed. The fact that KC, Cinci, Denver, Cleveland, Indy, even Green Bay making the initial list over Saint Louis is absolutely embarrassing. http://sb...
Outside of Spirit, any chance of Volaris or WestJet?
This may be a dumb question: Is St. Louis having two airports a good thing? Let's say Mid-America reaches 500,000 passengers a year with an additional carrier (maybe Spirit or Frontier) joining Allegiant and some permanence and stability as an airport. Safe to say that's a net positive for the regi...
May numbers are out. Up 75% for May over last May. up 49.71% on the year. Already more than 2015 numbers. It has been impressive how much they have grown the last couple years. They have as shot at 250,000 for the year. Snapshot of things since Allegiant started their current service there. 2012......
Does anyone know where I might find historical Saint Louis soccer photos? Thanks for any help
So I just compared Southwest at STL/MDW/BNA. Nashville has 2 destinations not found at Lambert: Charlotte and Jacksonville. Midway has another 25: Albany, Albuquerque, Birmingham (AL), Buffalo, Cincinnati, Flint, Grand Rapids, Hartford, Indianapolis, Louisville, Manchester (NH), Memphis, Montego Ba...
STL is up to 114. I see on Southwest's website they list their top 10 cities by departure. Atlanta is number 10 with 125. Are we number 11? Are there many cities between us and Atlanta? At the time they made that list March 2017. Oakland was at 120. Nashville was at 95. We were at 104. San Diego wa...
114 daily in March. https://www.flystl.com/newsroom/stl-news/2017/southwest-expanding-service-to-cancun-and-other-destinations-next-spring Southwest Airlines has released its spring 2018 schedule which includes a major boost in flights for St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL). The schedule...
Does anyone know what Washu uses this property for? I see the parking lot full at times.
Numbers for MidAmerica are up 40% through April. They should get over 200,000 this year. They should have passed their entire 2015 numbers in May. Impressive. I am glad to see it doing better. 2011 0 2012 3,830 2013 25,550 567.10% 2014 31,340 18.47% 2015 62,730 100.16% 2016 157,000 151.77% 2017 51,...
How much would it cost to extend Metrolink from Shiloh-Scott to MidAmerica? A lot more than the passenger traffic from this flight schedule would justify: ALLEGIANT AIRLINES OFFERS NON-STOP FLIGHTS FROM MIDAMERICA ST. LOUIS AIRPORT TO SANFORD/ORLANDO (SFB) - THURSDAYS & SUNDAYS TAMPA BAY/ST. PETE (...
How much would it cost to extend Metrolink from Shiloh-Scott to MidAmerica?
Sacramento, CA 83
Jacksonville, FL 66
Hartford, CT 64
Norfolk, VA (Metropolitan Area) 60
Richmond 45
How high do those numbers need to be for a non-stop? Most of those airports have a pretty big Southwest presence, have they run these routes before?

JetBlue to JFK, Icelandair to Reykjavik, British Airways to London

Why would you want JetBlue to JFK instead of Delta? Delta has far more connecting flights out of JFK and far more robust code share alliance. Seriously curious
Just for fun, I wondered if you could add any 3 routes from the airport what would the city/airline be? It can be a city there is already service to on an airline that doesn't fly it. It doesn't have to be viable but in theory would have to be possible. For example, Southwest or Cape Air to Sydney ...
If one were to build an MLS stadium outside the city, what are the best sites? I looked at Google maps and keyed on the large parking lot on the South side of Galleria at 64 and 170. Galleria could construct another parking structure on the North or East side to make up for the lost parking. That l...
I actually don't hate that the Imo's sticks out a bit from it's neighbors. For 750k they probably should just build a whole new structure. However I think they could do something way cooler for cheaper: Reminds me of Dat Dog down in New Orleans, the Freret area reminds me a bit of MorganFord even. T...
