As far as aircraft maintenance goes usually only three numbers are tracked. - Calendar days: Exactly as the name suggests. Calendar due dates are common for corrosion checks and that sort of thing. An example might be a scheduled task to check underneath the galleys and lavatories for corrosion eve...Jump to post

Air Force One will be in town Wednesday for those of you who like plane spotting. Doing a speech at Boeing. Ugh, what time? I have to pick someone up in the afternoon, I hope he’s not delayed because of that dickhead. You stay classy Saint Louis. I’m sorry, I’ll try to class up the joint by having ...Jump to post
Captain Joe on YouTube did a video about this a few months ago. Pretty enlightening... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lw6mjVIdbbc Mythbusters did it too, they were able to land a plane in a simulator being talked down over the radio. That being said, I think if I ever found myself in a situation w...Jump to post
On the subject of the glory days of STL, can someone help me out with something? Where was the exit from the US Customs and Border Patrol for international arrivals into the C gates back in the TWA days? The area where people picking up passengers off international flights would meet them I guess. ...Jump to post

Has there been any serious talk about a whole new replacement Terminal for STL? I would have to think that there's a lot of aging, expensive infrastructure at Terminal 1, and STL is no longer an ORD rival. Something like a 55 gate replacement better designed for the post 9/11 security era. Perhaps ...Jump to post
given the number of unused gates and considerable runway capacity (3 parallel) is it safe to say STL is the most underutilized major airport in the country? Probably but when it was a hub it was bursting at the seams. If we had the $$$ (or the motivation) we could "right-size" the concour...Jump to post
Cardinals fly a Delta 757 and land at CPS, so it’s not them. Blues fly a Miami Air 737 and land at STL, so it’s not them. I think most other MLB and NHL teams use narrow bodies.
No scheduled widebodies, so they’re either one-off equipment swaps, charters or diversions.
Do the European and Canadian leisure airlines provide anything that their respective country's flag carriers don't? Thomas Cook and TUI fly London-Cancun, but so does BA. Condor flies Frankfurt-Cancun, but so does Lufthansa. Ditto for XL and Air France. Are the holiday airlines cheaper, or do they p...Jump to post
Living paycheck to paycheck also means there is the option of saying we just can’t affird to take this trip.

Queen Elizabeth II is the only person in the UK who does not need a passport. All passports are issued in her name as head of state, so she does not have one. However, she still has to comply with regulations by providing her full name, age, address, nationality, gender and place of birth to securi...Jump to post

I fly between STL and DTW fairly frequently and the low LF surprises me. Often the flight is 100% full, every seat taken. Every now and then, I get lucky and it's only 90% full and I have an empty middle next to me. If Southwest ever axes STL-DTW, or drops the Sunday night outbound, Wednesday night ...Jump to post

Okay, so both pilots of an A320 ate the fish. Lets assume autoland isn't working for one reason or another, the plane has to be flown manually. The only person on board who can fly a plane and didn't have fish for dinner is a 737 pilot who has never been at the controls of an Airbus. How screwed is ...Jump to post

Speaking of United and waiting for a gate, earlier in the year I had a fairly tight connection in ORD. Our inbound aircraft arrived on time, scheduled to depart from A18. However, the plane currently at A18 was late taking off I believe due to MX, we were already past its scheduled departure time wh...Jump to post
