Largest Commercial Aircraft From STL?

Sat Jul 10, 2004 12:18 pm

The thread about the 777 in STL sparked my interest. What is the largest scheduled commercial jet that STL gets? In the past year I've flown out of STL to school in Tempe (PHX) and really never see anything exciting at Lambert.

When I was in there in October, AA had a 762 there.

No more 762 or 763 at STL. AA's mainline schedule at STL is now roughly 90% M80 (pardon me, "Super 80"), 10% 757.

So...the 757 is the winner, unless there are some seasonal scheduled charters I don't know about.

Passenger - B757
Cargo - DC-10

The biggest Ive seen now days is 757s for passengers.

FedEx usually has two DC-10s at the cargo ramp every day.

I think the smallest would be CorpEx J31s and the Skyway B190s (to MKE).

Wrong Antonovman, if you read the post correctly, the question asks....

What is the largest scheduled commercial jet that STL gets?

My answer is correct.
