I have skimmed through the past 5 or so pages and don't see anything listed to date. Back in the original pages, there were claims that the flight crew reported unreliable airspeed. According to avherald.com, it is now said "there had been no indication of unreliable airspeed by the flight crew...Jump to post
Would also love to see WestJet enter the market with flights to YYC. I doubt it'd happen considering they already fly to Nashville from there (and I don't know the O&D for the STL-YYC pair), but you never know. Wishful thinking on my end. Have to think our best bet on any *real* Mexico service ...Jump to post

When am I going to see the Spirit adds STL thread? NK adding service out of STL will probably happen in the near future since NK has recently added service to other former FL destinations such as AVL, CLT, CMH, IND, JAX, RIC, and RDU. I think it is a good possibility for them to grab some business ...Jump to post
Am I the only one that noticed SUS flights on Concur? Contour?

Is anyone able to view and select a roundtrip ticket on SW from STL - HNL? I've checked several times and it appears you can view the outbound leg, however all i can see on the return side in unavailable. Flights leave OAK/SJC too early for there to be connections to come back. Probably will have t...Jump to post
I will miss the MD80/88/90 for two main reasons: they are really quiet near the front, and I’m a big fan of the 2x seating on one side. 3x3 seating is no fun when just the two of us travel together. Also always enjoyed the seemingly steeper than normal climb at take off. Could just be my imaginatio...Jump to post
Looks like Sun Country has officially moved over to C28 now. The airport also lists Volaris at C28, but it might just be temporary while they replace the A15 jetway. Got a reply back and Volaris at C28 is permanent. So that means A15 is open for someone *cough* DL *cough*. So now the airport site l...Jump to post
Swift plus Eastern can also use their 767s. The problem is finding 767s not claimed by a freight forwarder. As for 737s, what about 737-900ERs coming off lease that can be configured with 200 seats? Swift could do a lease to own. Those 767s have not been used in a while. I know we saw them subbed f...Jump to post
I know this really hasn’t been talked about much, mainly because of lack of info, but what it everyone’s take on privatization?

Is runway 29 used for landings? Is runway 11 used for takeoffs? Looking at a google image, there's no black exhaust on one end, so I'm suspecting NO on both questions. 29 is used for a limited number of arrivals. 11 was not used for departures in 2018.

Updated my Load Factor Spreadsheet for November. Everything looked pretty good. AS/UA/G4 all over 80% F9 is all over 80% except PBI but it was its first month. All west coast flights are strong (80s and 90s). SMF hasn't been under 90% yet in any month. Sun Country is off to a rough start 66% but I ...Jump to post

I’m also surprised NK and/or B6 haven’t shown any interest in STL. WN make take that as a good sign. Speaking of B6 (which I don't see STL on their radar) I DO see "Moxy" coming here (STL or BLV) whenever they launch.

Any timeline on when they want them open? I would guess summer 2020? Hopefully they use some of the vacant storage or whatever it is space to put in some sort of food. The problem with D is that it's not very wide. I flew out of there a few times when AA was there after the tornado. My recollection...Jump to post
So well that Venezuela may never see it back. Russia has invested billions in Venezuela over the last decade and they are not just about to lose it all.

While SAV is already served nonstop from many of the major Midwestern markets such as ORD, CVG, CLE, LCK, DTW, IND, and MSP, there is currently no nonstop service to SAV from either STL or BLV. G4 could add BLV-SAV nonstop service since (a) the STL/BLV market is currently the largest market in the ...Jump to post

I would personally love for them to add St. Kitts, which they seem to be fond of currently with these last few adds.

If it stays at 6% for the year the final number would be 16.615 mil. Highest since 2003, not bad.
Looks like this is the MD-83 from the video. This is an interesting idea, just wonder how successful it will be.

Maintenance test flight. Next. And to claim this is “over the Pacific” is laughable. More like off the coast of California. Which ocean is off the coast of CA? The Pacific.

As a side note, when booking STL-Europe on AA, I mostly get connections through CLT or PHL, with some places (like CDG, LHR, or BCN) going through ORD. I prefer ORD when I can because I can take a 787 over an A330. Curious why you like the 787 over the A330. Are you usually traveling alone or with ...Jump to post

Just saw this posted on Twitter. Swift runs tons of pro and college sports charters as well as as vacation charters. Swift acquired EA part 2. I guess this just gives them some more cash? Thoughts?
I am SHOCKED there is no SFO-SGN. I would think that could EASILY be done 5x weekly. I just HATE the super long connections to get there. Takes FOR-E-V-E-R!Jump to post
