“According to the other site...” huh? This vagueness obviously doing no one any favors. I assumed he was referring to Flyertalk. Sure enough this thread has more information and some screenshots of the UX portal. https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/southwest-airlines-rapid-rewards/1930684-free-messagin...Jump to post
One thing that will help answer this is in the article below. The lucrative cargo business which the 763 and 772 are perfect for on many routes from MIA to South/Central America.
[threeid][/threeid] Yeah that looks to be part of the marketing incentives promised to WOW. There was even a nice full-page ad about STL a few months back, if I can find it. I like the travel blogs. Neat idea. As others state, we “don’t have tourism” yet we have a ton to do here. I know we aren’t Ch...Jump to post
Meh, I wouldn't look into it too much at the moment; I would imagine there's a bit more flux with charters. Besides, even if Apple stops it, WN will still have service (and have it when it's used most often). I emailed he airport about it recently. Got this response. Montego Bay has not been added ...Jump to post

Probably true (and I never really thought it would be us) but nothing in the thread is concrete except for one guy who might not even have read the route map correctly and announced there is a press conference when there hasn't been a confirmation of such.

And aer lingus would be on a narrow body and would end up just being a connection point like KEF When WOW announced their STL service quite a few people at my company asked me about them as I am "The Travel Guy" at least when it comes to flying. Interestingly enough, it wasn't London, Par...Jump to post
I'm just glad I'm thought so highly of over here. LOL!! There's one thing BNA has that STL doesn't, tourism. That alone fills up any seats that aren't gobbled up by business traffic. Their LF through the summer for BNA was at 95% so in reality, it doesn't get much better than that. I think that spe...Jump to post
Not to get too far off track from aviation but imo the metro issues are a little overblown. Are there security issues, of course, but I have seen stats that you are more likely to be injured/die riding in a car from the airport than on the metro. I've seen my share of shady situations on it but I n...Jump to post

An aircraft with what 70 seats has two air marshals? That was the first thing that jumped out at me as well! Maybe there's some sort of risk-assessment algorithm determining how, where, when, and the number of these guys get onto planes, right? I mean "random" doesn't really make much sen...Jump to post
Very nice video. Great production quality! Their name and logo are a big confusing. It doesn't exactly say "BAHAMAS!". It reminds me of something that should be based in the Western USA.

I'm really liking all this new service on LCCs like F9, G4 and SY to Florida from STL over the past 2 years or so. The prices are set much lower than the big Florida carriers like WN, AA (who are, btw, lowering their prices) and the variety of destinations is vast. They are really breaking the &quo...Jump to post
Who else thinks this is a complete joke? Look at the "salaries" and rates that are going to be paid to people and the hourly rates for lawyers! Unreal.
All it will take is someone whose psychotic break leads them to fly the plane into a stadium or a building instead of taking a joy ride and crashing into a forest, and all this will change. What if a pilot decides to do this? How would you want to prevent that? With a security code? If you really w...Jump to post
To the post above about blaming ATC for apparently not dispatching authorities to stop the aircraft on the ground before it even took off..... I get what you’re saying, but we have no idea what was going on. There is a very good chance they DID dispatch authorities as soon as they noticed something...Jump to post
I would even argue the business claim. That is a large segment of BNA traffic. STL isn’t that big of a market for DL so just forget that. If a TATL launches from STL to Europe (WOW notwithstanding) there will be incentives involved. That’s a fact. It’s not about being a “fanboy”. It’s about wanting...Jump to post
I never heard anything about it coming this week. I would be a little surprised if it is. PGA is taking all the news cycle and the airport is even using ther stage all week for performances.

Are u sure it was this week? If you are, then the only news is that it is not aer lingus. So I am doing the math on this. If and I mean BIG IF, EI decides to do DUB-STL, the 321 NEO will be right at the edge of performance. STL-DUB is 3,921 miles. Airbus says the 321 NEO range is 4,000. I can't see...Jump to post
