My guess is someone else charted the plane. Can’t see the city paying someone to fly in private to answer questions. I don't think someone else is going to charter Spanos' G-V. He is in town for one reason or another (overnight) so who knows. We can guess. It makes it more mysterious! BRING OUR CHh...Jump to post
Anyone able to explain this? https://twitter.com/tpc_stl/status/1271795062712696833 Its the LA Chargers owners private jet at Downtown Airport. Seems to have been sitting there overnight judging by the photos also. A long way for some maintenance work on a small private aircraft surely? I would gam...Jump to post
I like some of the ideas behind it but if any organization really says " Lambert only survives under city ownership and operationship with tax increases which will burden lower income residents, whom in St. Louis, are predominantly african-american." Then that is an outright lie to try to...Jump to post
NAACP believes Lambert only survives under city ownership and operationship with tax increases which will burden lower income residents, whom in St. Louis, are predominantly african-american. That is 100% untrue. An airport has to be self sustaining. That’s why the fees were so high on airlines aft...Jump to post
Draw a straight line along the angle of attack at the area suspected of being the engine striking the runway. The fuselage would have struck the ground just aft of the wing. Not to mention the nacelle would probably been ripped off. Fishy.Jump to post

I think it will be a long time..if ever..when DL comes back. Most of the suspended airports are near way-bigger airports (OAK, MDW etc.)
These outposts will be the last to get reestablished, particularly if things come back slowly.
I have another theory. I strongly believe all of the US3 will remove baggage fees and change fees permanently to get passengers back in the air and to stimulate demand . No change fees and/or fully refundable/changeable tickets should have been a requirement of any U.S. airline taking a bailout. Yo...Jump to post

With amazon now here it should be a easier choice for privatization. The cargo city idea would work out well. Fedex, UPS, and Amazon could all move over there and make a pretty big and nice area for it. Maybe even utilize the shoddy runway that shouldn't have been built. The shoddy runway was 12 ye...Jump to post

Sometime back there was a discussion on how to duplicate Pan Am Blue. Well, I came across this graphics guide in the digital collection of Pan Am at the Univ. of Miami.

Bottom line: If these Multi Billion dollar companies thought the service was valuable and would use it to such a degree an airline could make a decent amount of money you would have the service. It appears STL business is not motivated enough to do that. I suspect-- that in the end--they believe a o...Jump to post
We have a huge office in London and our world HQ is here in STL. We travel to London frequently and co-workers from the UK fly here.

Sad to see it go. Used T2 almost weekly flying TW PHXSTL on the L1011. Flew United Express to SJC and SFO many times. Even used T1 a couple of times on WN before it went down. I always thought T2 represented what everyone thought an airline terminal should feel and look like in the wild west. It was...Jump to post
AA experienced a similar issue. What’s in uniforms that causes the problems that is not in the clothes purchased in retail chains that the average Joe wears? 1) You only wear a typical outfit maybe once per week. This is 40-60 hours per week in it. 2) You only buy stuff that is comfortable to YOU. ...Jump to post

The 737 MAX will not be rebranded. David Calhoun believes the brand name is still strong. And so the clowns continue to run the circus. Skulls thicker than a 737 fuselage.

Smart move. He will be a lobbyist. And when he swaggers into an airport commission meeting where AA is wanting better/more facilities AA will have a better chance to get what they want. Probably without paying for it. The McCain name still has major clout in the west and Hawaii. Again, smart.Jump to post

I look at the total picture, options pre-security and options post-security. STL comes up short in both categories, but particularly pre-security. I've been in airports everywhere. STL could do so much better, but the natives think it is "good enough" apparently. At least it is not MCI. Bu...Jump to post
