Re: St. Louis Aviation Thread - 2021

Also, if STL has space that is “built and cheap” for WN, why haven’t they expanded anymore into D? They’ve had plenty of opportunities to do so and they haven’t. They have been pretty methodical about growing here. There is no reason to open D all up just to do it until they need to. They just open...

Right now the airport is in a huge debate about staying a public entity, being leased out, or privatized.

You make valid points, but isn't the runway close to being paid off? Yes, the renovations have been nice, but they are only a temporary band aid. STL in the long term doesn't need two terminals, and D doesn't really have the proper hold room size to handle WN 800s/MAX 8's (yes it can work, but not ...
