WN @ STL Concourse A Today?

Mon May 09, 2016 5:50 pm

I was driving by STL today and saw a WN tail parked at Concourse A between to DL birds about 11:45 am. Anyone have any info on this?

Are you sure it wasn't a charter at Concourse B?

Yes, Concourse B is closed. This was parked at A between 2 DL's.

Concourse B is closed off from the public and is not in use. Since he mentioned the DL birds, it is definitely Concourse A.

Wild guess would be a baseball charter.

Thought that was D?

Does WN do any MLB charters?

Both B and D are closed off.

Both B and D are both closed off. The entrance for B now goes directly to the control tower.

As stated, Concourse B is closed off to normal airport activities. The apron appears to be used for Delta RON storage, but the concourse was transformed into a meeting space and can be rented:

http://flystl.com/AirportGuide/Services/LambertRentalSpaces.aspx

Casino Charters (xtra airways, shuttle america charters) seem to use A15. Recently A17 is sometimes used by United for overflow. If A15 was inop, and United had A17 in use (which would mean all other United gates going to be occupied as well), a charter might've borrowed a Delta gate. Other threads report normal WN gate activities in terminal 2 is usually at a premium for scheduled service, even with their expansion into the E-gate international area.

Lastly, Dallas Stars played game 6 in St. Louis last night. Could WN been used for the family/friends/fan charter?

Do you recall what side of the concourse it was on?

I'm having a zippy senior moment. Did our flights WN/FL go out of B concourse between 2011 and 2013? That's where I'd connect when going to and from DAL. Wright Ammendmant still in place.

FL used the "C" concourse until the tornado caused millions of dollars of improvements in 2011. I am not sure what gates they were using during the repairs.

WN has operated out of E for at least back until 90's

They would not use an extra charter aircraft unless it was a cup final game. The Blues use Swift Air and the Stars have their own 767-200 operated by Atlas Air.

Thanks for the info. I remember flying from ATL to STL on FL in 2011, then home to BWI on WN. In 2013 connected through STL on way home from conversion training from DAL on WN. It was the same terminal and same gates.

Fan charters for sports related events do not necessarily have to be limited to just the usual team operations.

Happened to come across this post. I saw a WN plane parked at a concourse C gate on Christmas Eve. Maybe if all their gates are full they just pull up to a different one for the night and haven't moved yet. This would have been around 9:40 am. An A gate seems really random though.
