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

There also is a bid out to put another Local Restaurant Concept in T2. It looks like it will be by gate E33. 1468 square feet with the option of 506 square feet of patio space. At the end of the pdf there is a layout for it. It wasn't where I expected but I think it will be good to have that down t...

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

My idealistic thought is one day Concourse A & C become linear with a new single security access point/new immigration & customs space where B stands now. Just to add to it- a hotel tower. I think based off of Lambert's construction this is physically impossible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

^well, except that criminals (especially of the juvenile variety) aren't going to be using credit cards. and if the gates are turn styles, they'll just jump them. the system just needs better surveillance and a greater police presence. since Metro isn't allowed to hire its own police force, the PD'...

Re: Crime Thread

Wow, love seeing an out of town visitor put on Facebook that she "watched a murder happen from her hotel room" at the Westin. She had business meetings here and she's cancelled them and was on the first flight to Atlanta this morning. This has to stop.

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

Not sure if we've done it for the airport yet, but I'll put out my 2017 predictions/hopes for the airport, with these either happening or being announced by years end: 1. The airport will break 14.5 million passengers, could even approach 15 if we continue to see record growth. 2. Southwest will onl...

^ also helps is that they are in 757 range lowering risk and any hubs not in the NE corridor is a backtrack.

That's a vey interesting proposition regarding American. I'm interested to see if there have been any discussion about this on their end. If I'm not mistaken, we do know for fact that the airport has spoken with Lufthansa, BA, and Condor. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the airport had the mo...

Also, not sure if there is any truth to this, but a friend of mine who lives in Shiloh works part time at MidAmerica and says that Allegiant is allegedly in talks to relocate its flights to Lambert in the next few years.

IMO, STL already has sufficient service to the Bay. I would only see an SJC route getting the axe after a few short weeks.

Not quite, unfortunately: St. Louis is currently ranked a Gamma+ city (KC is Gamma-). I was thinking we were a B -. Can't find statistics earlier than 2015, by which time it seems GaWC had already dropped us to G+. Assuming we were ever B- inside GaWC's existence. On the other hand, they rate Londo...

I also think overall, EWR is the preferred NY area airport for STL travelers. Have you ever been to Newark?!? I have and in fact it's currently my primary Airport. I should clarify, by preference I mean that fares/frequency out of EWR are overall better than LGA. As bad as EWR is, LGA is FAR worse,...

All of STL's social media has changed to St Louis Lambert International Airport, as well as a new logo.
