St. Louis of course but I was also thinking about Springfield and points south.
It's been a while since I've been in that area but IIRC Springfield was the midpoint between STL and PIA (about 75 miles to either if I remember the drive right). If G4 has seen a number of bookings at PIA from Springfield and other Southern Illinois towns they may also have identified a market that is choosing not to use STL for Vegas flights.

So can someone give me more info on this MidAmerica airport? Is it mostly a general aviation airport in St. Louis that, because of cost reasons, has attracted LCC, but beyond that, its basically pulling people from the same area as Lambert field is? sorry for the dumb questions.
