This sure is surprising the heck out of me. LH executives were once again spotted at STL. I have hard time believing they want to start service to STL with it being an AA hub and the O & D here is okay at best. Someone said they were seen here before, I guess this means they are seriously considering STL

This message is too short. It is Probably not any value to the topic at hand. I should think long and hard before I ask who a two letter initial is when referring to an airline.
Do you detect the sarcasm 'cause i'm laying it on pretty thick.
Heed our warnings or your future will be underpant free!

I have one word for this...shocking. Many of you know my level of love for the city of St. Louis (none). This is just suprising. Although, a flight to FRA would provide so many connecting opportunities with Star Alliance carriers. The more I think about it though the more it kind of makes sense. Currently, the only flight to Europe is to LGW on AA, BA does not serve many cities out of LGW, instead its European operations are focused at LHR. Starting STL-FRA service would open up many new single-connection city pairs...Could be interesting...

A passing similarity to the situation at PHX, whereby BA flew to LGW, and LH started FRA flights. I would think STL might have more business/industrial connections than PHX, although ORD is still mighty close.
