My vote would be B6 I would think Frontier would use the D concourse if they are expanding. Airtran would already have service to STL if the Midwest merger goes through. Is this a press conference or just an announcement?

As for FL if they want a decent operation there, they have to worry about having the Midwest folx at MCI feeling threatened. It would be interesting though if one of the routes they start is MKE-STL since there is no current low-fare competition.
I could see something like this if they wanted to go all out....
1-3x other FLA
Plus anything westbound
Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

Quoting CentPIT (Reply 22): I wish the best of luck to FL in STL, and maybe they will push AA around a bit!
That's what I'm worried about. Contrary to popular belief in St. Louis, American really does a lot to keep Lambert anything other than a sleepy little airport. I don't want anyone to give AA a good reason to leave, we need them.
IF they really are "going after" AA, it would be interesting to see what they do. Nobody has ever really stepped on AA's toes in St. Louis, AA and WN kind of work their way around each other. I guess we'll see if St. Louis is worth defending.
Let me guess, Concourse B, Gate 6? JetBlue?
Actually, i don't think it is JetBlue. I'm assuming your big announcement is the confirmed AirTran flights - probably means that B6 will add STL in about three months, if their recent route planning history is anything to go by.
None shall pass!!!!
: I think we have already seen the beginning of how AA will react. They have added mainline to SAT, AUS, RDU and 5x to LAX, they have removed mainline
: Agreed. MCI will be seeing alot of FL traffic, however, if the FL/YX deal goes through.
: Joe Leonard was with EA and probably had his fill of MCI and the challenges of trying to hub at that airport.
: I agree but, I also think as much as people may not like forklift Joe. He is still a hell of a business man. Just like the moron Trump says. "busines
: They are in a mandatory quiet period. They Will make their decision public on thursday.
: I believe Airtran has said...in one of their press tours of MKE...they are not all that interested in the MCI component of YX.
: It's not just MCI.. AirTran doesn't give much attention to a lot of their "older" stations.. RDU has service to ATL and that's it. Is there potential

: Wll, since there are other sources that have published the info, I don't see why I couldn't confirm it..... Indeed, Air Tran will start service at STL
: Is there room enough O/D traffic to these markets currently served by AA and WN, and DL (in the case of ATL) for FL to make money and expand, and not

: A little extra info somewhat related.... Some of you may be wondering, "what about Regions Air?". I hear through the grape vine that they are on the b
: That is great news. Are they putting back in an airbirdge over there? I take it it's just one gate to start? Is AA/connection going to move out of B

: Yea, I just don't know when or exactly which gate. I'll do some fishing on that.
: It's about time. While I love Delta, they have owned this market for some time from ATL. Last year at one point I had to pay around $850.00 r/t for AT
: My guess as far as the frequencies: 3x ATL 1x RSW 1x MCO Bout time though, how long has little Bloomington, Illinois had FL service? Three years? Four
: STL can get back some of those TWA 717s...
: Sounds like another airport I know quite well. However, as far as STL goes, I am not quite sure FL will be able to handle the heat that WN might thro
: I think it's 7. I don't remember exactly when they started there, but I wanna say sometime in and around 2000.
: Drat... I was hoping for FWA. After all, we were in the top 5 cities (in terms of votes) in FL's poll, ranking up there with PHX. Maybe we'll be next
: And if they enter Florida markets direct from STL, then they might be gunning for Southwest too. The question is, where would they expand to (route w
: perhaps their headed West? STL has a nice location to do that from most of FL's east coast cities... Maybe we'll find out tommarrow!
: Come on STL-TPA with AA cutting it to 1 daily, I need that one!
: Does anyone know the top o/d cities to/from STL? I would guess LGA, ORD or DFW.
