It is sad how it has went down, but it all started with TWA, and I can't help but think of the contrast between them and a company like Southwest. Just a simple thing like landing. I can remember hanging out over Illinois for what seemed like forever on a straight in final. That was long enough, but then to land halfway down the runway and dawdle back to the gate, Sothwest would have turned an aircraft in all that extra time. Herb figured out years ago that utilization meant profit. The evidence speaks for itself.
hard to believe that lambert got hi that bad as it was once a real nice airport. maybe this storm will make the people realize that they need to upgrade and start gettings airlines back there to bring everything back to its glory days
I was on flight 699 at C12 when the storm hit. A wild ride for about 15 seconds...glad it hit the concourse harder than us
I was there two weeks ago, and it is sad what has become of Lambert, and just as sad to see the abandoned McDonnell-Douglas buildings across the field.
With the loss of the American hub, Southwest (which is probably unaffected way down in Terminal E) is now the largest airline presence there.
