I tend to agree. I always felt that a residential tower here wouldn't work. Is the office tower still a go?

That's an awesome idea. I would relay that to the airport.

There's no passenger customs facility. So no.

The article in the BJ says she was on the board of the Port Authority for 22 yrs and current CEO of the STL Economic Partnership. She was a leader in founding 39North, the Ag Tech park, Centene Expansion, and Pfizer. No mention of a Europe flight but she does serve on the board of the Midwest Cargo...
My other half was at a luncheon on Friday for people in the area getting some kind of awards.

Wouldn't it suck to be Memphis?

I've actually known people to drive from KC or Nashville to fly out of St. Louis, if you can believe it. While I'm sure there are a *few* people who would do something like this, there will in no way be enough people to do so which would justify starting a new route. The "hassle" of making a connec...
Makes sense.

Edit: I would imagine given this, the Airport will literally give them an offer they can't refuse for next year.
Proximity to Chicago. Seriously... it would essentially be another overflow location for Chicago residents in the south burbs and would still draw from some of markets nearby like Cincinnati, Louisville, Dayton, etc and even some regional markets like Central Illinois (Champaign, Decatur, etc), Eva...
It looks good. I think it will age very well also.

I know I've said it for the last few years, but if BA is going to expand again here in the US, it will be STL.

The only two cities left vying for BA service is STL and IND. Does anyone have any real, logical, possible argument (outside of incentives) that an airline would select IND over us?

^ Unless the one going to Rio gets swapped up when the 789 arrives a few months later, since fall is better to start or add things to southern hemisphere for their spring. Also i think they aren't retiring planes so this is growth, unlike most of the last few years where there was little growth and...
My downtown can beat up your downtown. It is no secret to any of us that central KC is much more healthy than STL. However, STL does face a lot more complex issues than KC ever has or will. Given those setbacks, I think STL is doing quite well. Also of note, STL city's "urban fabric" is much more e...
^Greater Downtown is from River to 31st, State Line to about Hwy71. Central Downtown is generally considered River Market, CBD and Xroads. Most of the population increase has been River Market to Xroads and up Gilham to 31st but there have a been a few projects on E/W sides of Greater Downtown. Ohh...
Three Light is supposed to begin soon then May not break ground until next year according to this but others think it may happen when crane for Two Light isn't needed anymore. https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2017/08/04/two-light-going-up-and-leasing-up-fast.html And also... “Since the O...
I follow Captain Dave Wallsworth, a pilot for BA, on Twitter (@DaveWallsworth). He tweeted that there is a new A380 route coming, but he is not able to say the route until next week. Lots of people guessing it will be BNA. Hard to believe they'd get an A380 right out of the gate. I can essentially ...
Hello everyone, I was thinking today when walking around downtown, about what the Convention Center could be if it was renovated and made better. Some ideas I have that would fall under the category of "hopes" are as follows... 1. The Dome is Demolished 2. The Large lot there becomes a Convention c...
The Grove sign was destroyed a few hours ago by a garbage truck. KMOX reporting it may not be replaceable.

---I posted this before I read back and saw the Nashville news--- They have to have something they are using now. AA/DL run Cancun flights and Vacation Express runs charters to the Caribbean. I would imagine it isn't the greatest and doing one of those routes is different than a widebody jet but th...
---I posted this before I read back and saw the Nashville news--- Again, I am puzzled by this given that BNA does not have a functioning customs facility and will not have one for at least the next few years.

The posters on the Nashville thread on A.Net seem fairly adamant they can have a temporary one up by spring, and are prioritizing the permanent facility since they're also trying to get a Narita route as well. BA seems to still have 4 788's on order; I would imagine they're going to use those all f...
