Re: St. Louis Aviation Thread - 2020

Speaking of the wiki could someone add GRR, CLT, ORF, and PVD for Southwest under seasonal? I know they're only running till August 10, but they're running right now nonetheless.

Yep its Blissfield101 ... I used to update the map as well and that got taken away. Then I got scolded for adding COVID resumption dates on the destinations. So I just stopped updating STL's page and stick with helping out MSY and some Florida airports. Since I still wanted to keep track of all the ...

It appears like MSY's Long Term & Surface Lot's parking space count is now online. Short Term has been online for a month. A couple things I noticed.

1). The last update "Date" reads: Dec 12 2019

2). Does anyone know if the Economy Lot will also get individual space count?
