In comparing to STL keep in mind that while growth is much stronger in KC, St Louis is still a bigger city overall. Also, STL terminal for WN is much more conducive to connections than MCI which helps drive some of the additional flying.
Yeah, KC vs STL is interesting...Kansas City is the largest city in Missouri, but the St. Louis metro area (MO/IL) is bigger than the KC metro area (MO/KS).
But which metro generates more business travel and/or has not only more warm bodies, but more people who can afford to fly for leisure?
