What Does LH Want To Do With Stl?

Mon Sep 23, 2002 9:39 am

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 Confused

Who's LH?

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.

Lear,

LH is Lufthansa. Whats wrong with using airline codes? Just because his post is short doesn't mean it has no value Insane

Ren41,

He's being sarcastic.

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...

Did Lufthansa used to fly into STL a long time ago? I know it's off topic but I was just curious. I remember a lady living across the street from me a long time ago who worked for Lufthansa I think.

Shortly before the AA/TW merger, TW was getting ready to start service to FRA out of STL using 762. TW served FRA from STL in the early 90s for a short time.

No prob Ren and AA-STL. My rant was because of the "your post is too short and therefore not relevant" bs i got when all I wanted to know is who LH was. I was indeed being a smartass (typical me  Nuts).

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.

if Lh desides to go ahead with this route would it be with an a340? i personally cant see this being very profitable, ord is somewhat close, then there is always dfw..

Huh? DFW is at least 8 or 9 hours away from STL in a car.

yeah i know, i drove it twice... but im saying it isnt exactly a huge haul by plane, so maybe they would focus on dfw or ord instead of stl.... they have much bigger markets...
