^My issue with the Southwest concourse is there were basically no amenities so once you past security. We were a little early and wanted to get lunch and a beer at more of a normal sit down restaurant/bar and there weren't any. I think there was a Dunkin Donuts then just a bunch of kiosks if I reme...
Here is a rundown on the timetable for flights by Southwest from here next summer. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Nn_tw88EMAs0nYCc28rBlH498K5Ze_wIpOggAVp99bk/edit?usp=sharing There is also a tab to compare from last summer. This gives an idea as to the nature of their ops here and shows a c...
Too lazy/busy to look it up, how many gates does SW have in STL vs what's being planned in KC? What's the gate breakdown by concourse here? What's keeps STL c.p.e so damn high? How can we be more than a brand new airport in DEN?! What's going on in concourse b? Thank you for all the help! https://w...
^ That note that almost all growth i July was connecting was surprising. Since last year only around half was that. Then again. There wasn't much new this summer over previous summer, so it could be a reason. Would be interesting to see if the numbers of O&D demand lines up with that thought since t...
^ This also is based on if its done on time and on budget, which for terminals many times is not. Also the landing fees will be much higher than present there while by then it will be even lower than it is now here. Also as of right now it seems there the issue is more not losing service due to weak...
^ A little more help on the PR and public relations would help. If for no other reason than to clear up misconceptions a lot of locals have still. Then again, those who tend to still have those are the more provincial mindset people who tend to rarely if ever travel by air.
From last summer it seems like there is one more FLL this summer over last. This was one i suspected with what they have done there since this past summer and the possibility Spirit and/or JetBlue entering here and starting that. Of note with CHS is they announced it as daily at the start this time,...
Let's just indulge in this a little further... Lets say, Missouri gets it, builds it, and its running smoothly. What happens to the airports? STL, KCI, and Columbia. Does Missouri just invest in one mega, centrally located, airport (maybe Columbia) that would serve 5 million +? not sure why anythin...
It's a tough call. In my opinion, the only way it's going to happen is through a state-led vote. There is a lot of ignorant opposition to it locally. But I also don't believe Jefferson City should be deciding on any of the logistics or actualities if a merger happened. I think it's hypocritical to ...
That seems to be the likely play. Some of it depends on if they will focus efforts elsewhere on this one like more California related ones. That would make it less likely to add here since the previous release that featured California involves here. Sounds like their Hawaii aspect won't be in this o...
If i'm not mistaken, isn't AA putting a 737 maintenance base here? I would picture that would also impact scheduling to having a schedule that skews towards those so they can rotate them in and out for work. Also the drawing and mention of work starting past C24, guessing this is likely space needed...
One caveat in relation to this that could distort the number. Easter was March 27 last year and April 16 this year so that could have distorted some traffic patterns. Why i've seen a lot of times to combine March/April numbers together for year over year comparisons to not have the variable date of...
Looking at the drawing and placement, it wouldn't be too much design difficulty to do this. it would likely be placed on the deck carrying the westbound lanes due to the east bank only has trails north of 270. and the way things slope you can have easy grades getting down to either sides. Some other...
What is strange is this being an issue since it was designed for such things on other bridge projects recently in the area being built or retrofits to make it accessable. Just sounds like the hangup relates to the lack of trails on the Sunset Hills/Kirkwood site right at 270, though I think there ar...

The 141 bridge was actually built in 1986 or so and some rehab since then since it changed from a 4 to 6 lane bridge. One possibility is the railroad bridge just downstream if its ever replaced could be converted to connect to trails on both sides. That bridge is very old and only one track, so not ...
That hill Is the big issue in terms of needing to deal with steeper grade and other safety related issues. I did see one possible idea is have a bypass of Marshall road east of 270 by going north along 270 and through Dee Koestering Park. Is there plans to go along Geyer from the Community College s...
The lack of bike/ped access across the Meramec is a glaring hole in the overall system. Especially when there are segments already present across the river from each other. The only bridge i'm aware of that has such access is the Old 30 Bridge built a few years ago in Fenton, but there isn't much co...
Interesting is seeing Southwest make a few firsts out of here lately with that flight and this app they are working on. Guessing reasons they'd test it out here as well is due to having grabbing a higher amount of local business travelers than most places due to being the dominant carrier here and h...
One possibility on the transit is possibly a beginning stub of a future metrolink line going north. Since there are some right of ways from rail lines that could be used to go further north, convert the express lanes on 70 to a metrolink line, or even set it up to go that direction and see about inc...
^ Consider the estimate was that less than half of that was likely needed to get a nonstop to London, that much likely is for a couple routes. The real hangup right now on this seems to be no planes available until end of summer to do it. But with this incentive it seems to be more a when not if. In...
Guessing most likely time they formally start booking will be their next schedule extension. Interesting to see how its timed and how easy connections would be to/from here to these flights, or if any are same plane service. Wonder if them starting nonstop from here to Sacramento and San Jose next y...
September numbers would show the negative impacts from the hurricanes which could have an effect on local numbers to a lesser extent. And October on will have the effect of the big fleet retirement which will only recover late next spring. The fleet issue is likely why there isn't too much new fligh...
Wonder if there is a plan to address the congestion issues popping up with T2? Since it is only going to get worse over time.. Though to be honest these are the good sort of problems to have these days. Interesting looking at the PDEW numbers and note how much 1st quarter does drop off relative to r...
Just concerned that it would be an asset skimming mechanism that hurts things in the long run like what Ichan did with TWA and look what happened there. There is a part of me wondering if some of it is a way to force a hand and turn over management or even ownership of the airport to a regional port...
