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

A question for airline enthusiasts. A quick google search says the local Bosnian population to be around 70k. What would that need to be/what would need to happen for a STL to Sarejevo direct? Seeing Sarejevo doesn't have a direct flight to anywhere in the Americas I would assume it would have to b...

I also think overall, EWR is the preferred NY area airport for STL travelers.
Have you ever been to Newark?!?
Connecting from Europe this summer, hands down worst airport experience I've ever had. Soooooo many pigeons in the tiny, gross concourses.

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 ...

With D I wonder if all the gates would be reused anyway due to either need for shops and restaurants where there isn't space otherwise or gates that can't accommodate 737 sized aircraft. The two I would like to see JetBlue add are Boston (because Southwest's prices are crazy) and JFK because we don...

Re: Changing Policy to Prevent Real Estate Speculation

The worst of speculation has been done through public policy/double standards: Mckee, LRA, and SLU. Less rules not more are the answer. Give everyone the same chance. Keep everyone accountable, not just the little guys.

Exciting news! I always thought it foolish to tear down for a parking structure.

All this Lambert history has me wondering, did the airport ever have an observation deck?

Re: Old Schnucks - Clayton Rd. at Hanley

Good urbanism, terrible architecture. Something in this location deserves much more creativity and style! A 20-25 story signature tower on the corner would be ideal, at least as "daring" as Park East. Clayton's high standard of architectural design is quickly slipping.

I'd disagree. I bet there are more people crossing NW corner to SW corner than NE to SW. And it's not a true underpass, at least not an efficient one.

Re: Forest Park Parkway - Ideas/Updates

I've always thought an underpass at Skinker and FPP makes a ton of sense. I know the Metro station acts as a defacto underpass from the NE corner to the SW corner but a true underpass connecting all 4 corners would greatly improve the intersection for both pedestrians and motorists. Does anyone know...

Timely article from London.
