Also there is two other things that has to be noted going on that leads to something. Upcoming renovations and reopening of more C gates including one widebody capable one. Proposal bids for doing work on international arrivals and expansion of facilities on that end. They would not be doing this wi...
Also, KC does not have as a competition for air demand people who drive to Chicago unlike here. Since here I know more than a few people who drive to O'Hare to catch long haul flights and therefore won't count for demand from here. KC is too far a drive for that. Also in demand from Europe, it could...
April numbers are out. Up 5.5% for the month. 4.6% for the year. https://www.flystl.com/uploads/documents/public-notices-and-reports/2018AprRptPubRel.pdf Also, Southwest currently has 80 employees in town from their revenue management and network planning team, touring the area. They are visiting e...
Has Southwest ever had a nonstop between STL and JAX? I always thought it was American that had one that wasn't every day of the week and they got rid of it like 5 or 6 years ago. The two times I've gone to Jacksonville, I've flown to MCO and driven up. Not that I am aware of, but I haven't been ke...
So I was going through my frequency database for June and updating it. Southwest made a few changes from their original schedule release. Added an extra flight to Orlando every day but Friday. (to 5x m-th, 4x on fri, 6x sat/sun) Added an extra flight to New Orleans on Friday only (to 3x). Added an ...
DL has served ATL-ATH and ATL-TLV in the past. Both went away circa 2010/11. There are a few other marginal seasonal points like CPH, EDI, and GLA that are only served from JFK but not ATL. With the amount of O&D the NY market provides, it wouldn’t be viable to operate those from ATL requiring sign...
March Numbers are out. 1.32 Mil for the month. Up 4.4% Up 4.2% for the year. https://www.flystl.com/uploads/documents/public-notices-and-reports/2018MarAATSPubRel.pdf That is some nice growth considering brutal March in the northeast and this whole quarter still dealing with the mass plane retireme...
Security personnel with wands not machines Would be perfectly appropriate for the big event that draws 400 people. That makes sense as well those are more portable since fixed assets are more expensive and less flexible. Question though is why was there oversights and things slip through? Also wond...
While I think this highlights the need for metal detectors at BPV,I think people need to take a deep breath on this one. This did not happen after a baseball game, with your run of the mill pre or post-game crowd. This was a private event with up to 400 people crammed into the place. We do not know...
^ That and the fake news of the bikes dumped in the river. I'd go beyond CVB and toss out most of the officials in the area. Is there anyone with authority doing at least a competent job? Then again the problem is this is exactly what the voters want. Why I see the only way regional fragmentation is...
^ I think this issue is a reason why Cardinals attendance this year has dropped off noticeably, even considering weather and not making playoffs last 2 years
After tonights incident at BPV, I really think Lyda, Jimmie, Chief Hayden, and Cardinals upper management should have a press conference tomorrow reassuring the public that they are committed to keeping the city safe. This has set the city back extensively, IMO. BPV will likely see a substantial hi...
Not to be an alarmist, but I have always noted the extensive lack of security measures at major St Louis events and venues. Busch Stadium's security is mandated by the MLB. I really do think BPV should have metal detectors on game days, and anti-truck barriers should be placed on Clark if they aren...
WOW starting a "business class" I put it in quotes for a reason. I would compare it more to a domestic first class product seat wise, still no wifi/entertainment. But it is cheaper than legacy airline business class and better than their economy so it will be interesting to see how it does. https:/...
One thought i had what could be the areas greatest villains is not a person but the mindset. That is as much as anything and is the root of most of the problems around here. I've seen in many since 2014 either a harder push to defeat the local mindsets noting how much of a problem it is in many aspe...
Here's an typical bit of us on an odd bit of media: https://i.imgur.com/D625JQN.jpg I call it "Arch of the Palms." It's from the trailer for a game called "Cities: Skylines." Looks to me like 55 and Memorial have been completely overgrown in the most lovely way. (And sure, the buildings are wrong, ...
Reading through the March minutes from the airport commission meeting: Wingtips meeting expectations so far. Sidenote: I watched KC's latest airport update. Southwest had a representative there that mentioned "gate constraints at Midway and even St. Louis". I found that curious since I feel like we...
When i went through a few days ago I could clearly look down D. Seems to be in a similar state as C27/28 in how its likely only used to deal with overflow related to diversions. All there is blocking D is a sign saying "authorized personnel only". Also seems they use that space as to store equipment...
Just got back from Charlotte and there was a consolidated facility across from terminal. Also they explicitly have the parking at that area as an hourly lot so there isn't the issue as there is here. One observation i did notice leaving the airport was there is the space next to lot A where the fuel...
The T2 parking garage issue is something that is only going to get worse. Can imagine this will get much worse with WOW starting next month with international arrivals coming from there as well. Since you will have more people to pick up after clearing customs so making it with parking rates that sl...
Good to see in yesterday's South County Times that Kirkwood, Sunset Hills, and Fenton are all really trying to work with GRG and MODOT to get the pedestrian/greenway aspect of the new I-44 bridge built. This is in terms of a trail network an important link due to existing trails exist at or near th...
Not sure how many of you have flown AA long haul recently, but in their boarding sequence on the in-flight monitors on the 777-300 they display a series of global cities and skylines. Yesterday flew LHR-JFK and they displayed St. Louis in the sequence. Also, in the in-flight display, they have a vi...
January numbers are out. Actually better than I thought they would be. Passengers up 4.4% Departures up 7% https://www.flystl.com/uploads/documents/public-notices-and-reports/2018JanAATSPubRel.pdf That's really good when you consider this is during the Southwest plane shortage which will continue f...
As someone who is familiar with underground storage tanks those definitely need replacing due to age. Also it looks like the current facility is next to lot A? I'm guessing maybe after its replaced they could free up the space to expand lot A. The new location is better to allow more capacity and th...
There is a lot of pressure for Amazon to pick places that pick certain political profiles which will eliminate most of the finalists due to the state legislators. That would likely make it only DC, NYC, Boston, and Toronto at that point. At one point—and I forget where I read this, maybe here—it wa...
