I'm out here for business and they were moving gate seating to those gates. Basically taking the better of the seating sets from C-26 to and moving them around the people movers to C-25,27.

gus.

What does that mean for the brewhouse bar in B? That's the best one in the place, IMO.

Corporate will still operate out of B concourse. (they fly the Jetstream 32's) Everything from Trans States goes to C. Thank God, they have been a pain in the a$$ to us in operations for the longest time.

I am flying out of STL tomorrow, will have to swing by and check it out.

As for Corporate it is now RegionsAir  Wink

It is good to see them moving around and using more gates.

Isn't Corporate planning to move to the C Concourse as well sometime this year? (I thought I had heard by October). I thought the plan was to have all AA and AA Connection/Eagle flights operate out of the C Concourse. When I was there earlier this month it looked like some remodeling work was just starting down at the end. Also, any rumors on if more stores or restaurants will be added to the far end of C now that more flights will be there? I would love to see a McDonalds down there, it would be much better than the crappy Burger King they have at the food court  Smile

I really like the AA hub at STL, very convenient to fly through!

Quoting CIDflyer (Reply 5):

We knew Trans States was moving, but we had heard that was going to happen in October, so this was a surprise for us. I have heard nothing about Regions status on "B", but have heard nothing of if/when they will move.

Self speculation here, but I think the move was "moved up" to make renovations for someone else to move into "B" because there was a lot of activity within the gate areas that were vacated. Again, pure speculation on my part.

Slowly but surely, renovations are continuing on the "C" concourse. I personally wouldn't look to see any McDonald's here in STL. I think Burger King has an "exclusivity" agreement with HMS Host here.

JetBlue always comes up, but whoever it is, if anyone, I'll believe it when the aircraft is at the gate. Not until then.

Now that I think about it, it could be as simple as relocating one of the "A" concourse people that have been inconvenienced by the construction that is going on at the end of "A".

Time will tell.

So where exactly are the renovations taking place on "B"

Nothing like that. Some of the gate podiums were being removed and some detail work on the flight info displays at the end.

Minor cosmetic work, I think you may be right about someone from "A" moving over that way. When I was thru STL back in June, it looked like the south and west areas of the concourse were seeing some work being done...

very true, especially when the beginning of C looks rather nice with the new stores, restaurants and carpeting

Bummer! I'd even settle for a full service BK, the one at the food court has a limited menu and not the best of service


Anyone know if the new gate monitors for AA are in service yet?

The one on the upper level west end of the lobby is much more full service that the one at the food court. Reverse side of the coin there is it is outside of security. (bummer)

I don't know of, and have not observed any gate monitors working as of yet. A few "general" monitors are, and have been working for a few weeks now.

Two gates in C are currently configured for turboprops. Walked through today, saw the COU flight out of C was delayed, the other gate was not being used. Four flights were scheduled late this afternoon out of B. The end of C is coned off to people.

All right Boeing, now is not the time to start getting all cryptic on us. What possibly could new jetways on C-2 and C-8 possibly have to do with potential goings on in "B"?  pessimist

I have no idea. Seeing the new ones was a bit of a shocker.

I would have to agree about the jetways, as most of those on C are still using the old 70's era fixed type. Do these new ones look like they are more accomodating for the ERJ's?

IMO, they are a carbon copy of the ones on the south side servicing the ERJ's.

I saw that they are reconfiguring the security check point at the A Concourse. They had a sign post by the security check point saying "coming soon" with a picture of what it is going to look like. To me it looks like they are going to have security lines for each airline. Maybe Boeing Nut could tell us more... Also, I was just in the A concourse and they really need to spruce that place up (not that I'm saying anything new) and the new plasma screens are still not in operation. I thought they were going to have those on by now. Also, I saw today the stairs they had leading to the planes from gates C25 and C27. Are they going to put in new jetways so they don't have to use the stairs to get to the planes?

They must have posted this picture after I was thru there in early June, either that or I just did not notice it. But regardless I don't know how they will reconfigure that narrow area, it is an absolute mess.

I did notice quite a bit of minor remodeling going on in A, did not notice any plasma screens.

Maybe once some of this A to B gate shifting occurs, Dolliole and Co. can finally get A up to snuff. It is an embarrassment...

The A checkpoint is being totally redone. The Accounting department was behind the walls to your right as you go down the hall towards the checkpoint. Accounting has been relocated to a different area in the terminal. Eventually, the walls will come down and the checkpoint widened. As far as anyone going from A to B, I have no idea. That was just pure speculation on my part.

As far as the plasma screens go, I have no clue why they are not operating. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me because they have been up for months now.

Not that I know of. That was/is Trans States way of doing things when they were on B, I see no reason why they will change their ways. At least as long as they still have their Jetstream 41s.
