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...

Its more about other companies, especially the Amazon HQ2 decision which this political issue may very well be a factor in location. Also at this point since the 2010 article Southwest has in all but name hubbed here based on what is served, their obvious hub bank system here, and overall market sha...
I'm curious on that 277% number. Mainly how does it all break down when you compare actual demand from people starting or ending flights here. Is that increasing or will increase by a notable number and to which areas.
New Southwest extension Hartford, CT 1x daily added. This seems like a very logical add for being one of the largest unserved markets based on demand. Also seems well timed for flyers there heading west as an alternate connecting point relieving Midway. (also Midway is much more prone to delays in ...
The December numbers are have been posted. Up 3% for the month https://www.flystl.com/uploads/documents/public-notices-and-reports/2017DecRptPubRel.pdf Sidenote: If we are up 4.4% next year we will have our highest level since 2003 (which was right before a big pulldown in 2004) I know I'm being su...

Looks like for last year about 90 percent of the growth was due to connections due to how much of the increase of total emplanements was due to connecting enplanements. Not sure how to read that in terms of local demand since it looks like by crunching numbers total O&D increase is only .6% YOY. Thi...
Considering it would end up being even faster than air travel due to no dealing with TSA which killed short haul air travel since its made driving a faster option further out than before (also higher speed limits contributed) Though a system like this would work well to be connected to airports due ...
With all of the development and tax incentives going on, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Zoo Expansion happen this year considering... I was driving by this weekend, and it was packed to the gills - would be a good time for companies/businesses/people to throw some of that extra money toward it....
http://i63.tinypic.com/2zzuww4.jpg Crews are from Roberts Environmental Drilling and Shifrin & Associates Engineering I have used Roberts in my job for installing monitoring wells for environmental sampling. That looks like what they are doing there. There could be an environmental assessment going...
At some point, however, there's going to have to be some push turning to shove in order to reduce the number of municipalities and the pointless duplication of many services. Some (many) likely won't like it, but it's gotta happen someday. I think we might be surprised at how many sh*thole (pardon ...
Interesting to see if the other routes to the US they are adding is also increasing frequency. Also curious if this is related to the possibly seat makeup change as well. This does seem to indicate the flight doing well even with it being four months before starting.
