I think they are coming May 22. At least that is what I read in the airport board release. Which is probably good because of what happened at BPV this past weekend. Wouldn't have been ideal time for them to be here.

My biggest problem with the whole bpv thing was that it made national headlines before the facts were made known so the nation saw that it was innocent bystanders shot, but then only the local news reported that is was part of a fight, and all the trolls started coming out saying they would never visit the "liberal shantytown of St. Louis anymore"

Those people weren't going to visit anyways or just are online to troll. No one pays attention except other trolls.

This is all I needed to read to not be all that concerned about it. The people they talked to hit the demos that I was most concerned would shy away (older, people in suburbs/out of towners). They still are there 2 days later. Just to watch the game at BPV, without tickets no less. I was down there last night and it was pretty full.

But anyways, I don't want to stray away from aviation on here too much so I'll leave my comments on it at that.

I know someone who swears they are on a "nonstop" flight from St. Louis to Italy (FCO maybe? Not sure where, doesn't matter) later in the year. As we all know, no such thing exists, at least when it comes to regularly scheduled commercial flights. Not worth arguing with them, I don't like them anyways, but just wondering what they could be talking about. Are charters a thing? Like if a travel agency has enough people to fill a plane to Rome, will they actually charter one? I check FlightAware regularly for interesting international arrivals and have never seen a commercial passenger jet arrive from Europe unless it's a rare diversion, it's always just business jets, so that would be a first.

Or I'm guessing it's a direct flight and they are confused. Something like STL-ORD-FCO all on the same flight number, but with a plane change in ORD. I know airlines love to pull crap like that.

I would assume your last comment is what it is. A direct (with a stop). Only charter I know that runs nonstop from STL is the state farm one every year. If they are on that then I guess they could be on a nonstop. I am guessing that isn't it though.

A few notes from the April commission meeting.

1. There followed a discussion regarding the financial impact of opening the remaining nine (9) gates in the D Concourse. The Chairperson advised that the cost is estimated at over $5 million, plus the additional costs of maintenance on the walkways and cleaning of the concourse, and that at the present time it would not be feasible without a commitment from an airline to utilize those remaining gates.

2. Due to the increase in passenger numbers, Southwest Airlines is exploring the expansion of the baggage claim area in Terminal

3. This three-year Lease covers 5,746 sq. ft. in the Airport Office Building to be used for an additional flight simulator. This leased space is adjacent to space currently leased by Boeing, which also contains a flight simulator. The Lease contains a 60-day no-fault cancellation provision. Revenue to the Airport will $63,493.30 annually, with payments to begin upon the completion of Boeing's renovations to the leased space.

4. Rents for signatory airlines decreased 7.7%. Rental fees are based on the landing fees and as those landing fees are reduced, the rental rates will also decrease. This will potentially attract additional airlines and other entities to the Airport.

Anyone on here going to be around to see the first WOW flight land? Or happen to be on the first outbound? Hoping to see some pics. I will unfortunately be out of the country so I will miss it and of course I return on one of the days they aren't flying in. Any pics of their desk or gate would be great also. I won't be using T2 until the end of June.

That Max Prosperi guy is going on the first flight so I'm assuming he will have a report on it on his blog. Unfortunately, I won't be able to see it either.

This is the type of thing I like about getting WW instead of FI

"A couple from St. Louis, on their way to Paris, who flew to Cleveland on Southwest to catch the inaugural Wow flight because it was cheaper than flying from Missouri."

"Among the inaugural passengers were Carol Mata and Matt Gordon, who drove to Cleveland from Cincinnati to catch the flight."

And yes, I am excited to finally have an international carrier here because judging from that picture, they actually have nice fa uniforms- for both men and women, unlike our drab American carriers.

I think WOW will capture travelers who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford to go to Europe. Personally, I would be more likely to fly FI because I like having in flight entertainment but I think WOW probably is less likely to impact other TATL service than FI, because I think for the most part it is a different customer base. If we got FI instead, I am not sure it would be much cheaper than flying a Legacy one stop, so I would probably just take the Legacy instead. For that reason, it probably was the better one of the two to have come. I am sure I will fly WOW at some point to Iceland or on maybe an extra trip to Europe for cheaper I wouldn't have taken otherwise.

I’ll be on the first flight out and will try to get pics.

I wonder what loads will be like on the inbound. Pretty light I’m sure, it seems demand between STL and Europe is mostly one way, doubt there are many Europeans heading to STL for tourism. I’m guessing loads on the first few KEF-STL flights will be light.

I’m more surprised by the 14% difference between MBJ-STL and STL-MBJ. Since it’s operated by a travel agency I’d expect them to be the same, doubt that many people are traveling one way between St. Louis and Jamaica.

The flight is only a few times a week, so if someone wanted to depart on another day, they would take AA with a layover there and fly direct back or vice versa

Updated my Load Factor Spread sheets.

2018
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

2017 (International thru October)
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

Didn't take much time to compare to last January except that WN LF on STL-PDX went from 71% to 88%. AS cut the route for January (it comes back March-May, then is cut for good) and WN obviously benefited.
Most WN routes were up except for some of them with increased capacity.

When I did a dummy booking, the flight was a lot cheaper with a hotel booking so I'm assuming there is some sort of kick involved.

I find it interesting Allegiant seems to have the route stopping for the winter the same day that Frontier starts theirs.

Apparently Southwest started STL-CHS early (May 7). I didn't do a frequency chart for May because the extension was for April and May then the next one was for June. I figured April and May was the same.

STL-CHS is running mon-thursday and Saturday. No Friday or Sunday until the June extension when it goes daily (and when I initially saw it starting). Not sure when the backfill happened.

I might do a May frequency just for Southwest since I have a little time on my hands today.

They had been replacing underground fuel pipes in C. Maybe they have moved to E? Although I figured E was newer so they wouldn't need to.

Appears CLE had same result --half full on 1st inbound, nearly full on outbound from Cleveland.com
"The inaugural flight to Cleveland from Reykjavik was about half full, according to the airport. Representatives from Destination Cleveland greeted arriving passengers with a goodie bag of items, including sunglasses, bottled water and a map."

February numbers are in for BLV

41,639 for the year. Still up 108%

It is a little crazy to see how fast Allegiant has grown over there. Already higher numbers than all of 2014. Probably will move ahead of 2015 after March. They might pass 2016 by mid year.

If Allegiant keeps growing, I should just cash all this in and open up a hot dog stand or something at the Mid America Airport.

On another note - is there still a car rental counter there or no...

Anyone on here going to be around to see the first WOW flight land? Or happen to be on the first outbound? Hoping to see some pics. I will unfortunately be out of the country so I will miss it and of course I return on one of the days they aren't flying in. Any pics of their desk or gate would be great also. I won't be using T2 until the end of June.


I’ll be on the first flight out and will try to get pics.

I wonder what loads will be like on the inbound. Pretty light I’m sure, it seems demand between STL and Europe is mostly one way, doubt there are many Europeans heading to STL for tourism. I’m guessing loads on the first few KEF-STL flights will be light.


Appears CLE had same result --half full on 1st inbound, nearly full on outbound from Cleveland.com
"The inaugural flight to Cleveland from Reykjavik was about half full, according to the airport. Representatives from Destination Cleveland greeted arriving passengers with a goodie bag of items, including sunglasses, bottled water and a map."


That's cute ... greet them on their arrival with a free bottle water after charging them $5 during the flight :)

I have seen pics of one in the past. I don't know the current status.

EDIT: Enterprise looks like it does.

That will complement the full-service bloody mary bar well! :checkmark:

February LFs are out and November Intl loads. I'll fill out my spreadsheet later but since it was the month for CUN on WN I thought I would post its numbers first.

STL-CUN 82.3%
CUN-STL 79.5%

For comparison sake BNA started the same time

BNA-CUN 55%
CUN-BNA 69%

Looks like E29 for WW. Assuming they won't have any branding here (besides the monitors) since this gate is used for other International arrivals.

It is their gate. They will have branding. At least that is what was announced a few months ago. They will be the only departure out of it (unless WN uses it once in awhile). Having arrivals at it won't matter for branding purposes. Those people won't come out far enough to see what is on the gate.

Allegiant extended their schedule into February. FLL and JAX look to be seasonal this year, stopping in August. Luckily Frontiers JAX route starts the same day that Allegiant stops theirs. They are running an extra VPS and SFB this winter though (at least through December).

WOW is flying to India and St. Louis will be one of the US cities it will be offered from (With a stop in Iceland, obviously). Long flight but $199 each way promotion.

https://www.benzinga.com/pressreleases/ ... ia-iceland


They also extended their schedule looks like it runs 3x over winter to Iceland. It also looks like they are changing the departure time to 4:10 pm which puts in you Iceland at 4:30 am.

Outbound M/W/F
Inbound Sun/Tues/Thurs

They must be overnighting the plane here during winter so they can use the same crew both ways.

Start a pool for actual arrival and departure time (in and off the gate)?

Looks like a 7 hr 15 min layover in KEF and then on to DEL. Almost 24 hours total travel.
The return has 3 hr 25 min layover in KEF.
