"very bad PR work"

(United States)

Unverified | I pulled up to pick up some passengers and did not know where to go. So I then asked security staff at the airport where I should go and the security guard started yelling at me to move the car. I asked him several times that I did not know where to go and he kept yelling at me to move my car. A Saint Louis police officer then approached and started yelling that I need to move or leave the airport. I asked the St Louis police if he could help me and show me where to park, he then yelled saying move your car or we will tow it. As I was leaving the area I noticed the security guard yelling at other people visiting the area. I will not return to this airport, very bad PR work for the Airport.

"time to update your fountains"

(United States)

Unverified | I travelled from STL at 4.45 on Thursday, 7/20 to DTW, Gate A2. Please note that the temperature outside when we arrived at the airport was 100+. I brought a bottle to refill with water. Both drinking fountains near the gate were inoperable. I walked further down the terminal and came to 4 other drinking fountains. Nothing but a dribble came out. It was hard enough to get a sip of water but was impossible to fill up a bottle. This is ridiculous and leads me to believe you are forcing me to spend $3 on a bottle of water. It is time to update your fountains, first with ones that work and secondly with the bottle fillers that are offered in most 21st century airports. Secondly, the men's room near gate A2 had 4 soap dispensers none of which had any soap. These issues don't reflect the airport or the city of St Louis in a very good light.

"food options are still lacking"

(United States)

St Louis has gotten better but food options are still lacking - especially for breakfast. Especially in terminal 2. Basically just dunkin doughnuts, pastries and burger king. There is a chili's if you like cafeteria quality. Starbucks line is usually over 40 people due to dearth of options. Parking is cheaper than average compared to many other airports but close to average. Security is average. Which is to say slow and inefficient. Bathrooms are a weak point at STL. Not enough facilities and typically have wait times at all men's bathrooms (if you travel during weekday mornings) Baggage claim is among slowest in the country. Facilities are fairly clean. Seating is almost adequate is call it average. Overall a little below average nationally in my opinion but better than any other airport in Missouri (admittedly a lie hurdle).

"plenty of dining and shopping"

(United States)

This review is for Terminal 2 at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. STL serves as a connecting center for Southwest Airlines, and serves a good number of local travelers as well. The security lines always seem long in the mornings but they do move fairly quickly, I was in line for about 15-20 minutes. No problems. The terminal post-security is decent sized although seating at some of the gates is on the light side so some people were standing. I managed to get a seat at one of the freestanding bar stool areas, but would have preferred a seat with a back. Plenty of dining and shopping options for those so inclined.

"personnel are friendly and helpful"

(United States)

Overall I like the Lambert-St. Louis airport. Before I begin I should mention that I generally fly Southwest so this may be more directed towards that terminal. First, the positives. I've never had an unreasonable flight problem/delay during an arrival or departure from this airport. So the air traffic seems to be very efficient. The airport personnel are friendly and helpful. The layout is nice and it's easy to get to restaurants, coffee shops, and rest rooms. Security seems on par with most other airport security so while nothing special, I've not experienced an unusual problem. Second, the negatives. The only real serious negative I've found is their WiFi is simply horrible. To start, it's Boingo which I've found below par at most airports that use this provider. At Lambert, it's so weak and spotty it's essentially non-existent. Why is it serious? Because I'm usually flying on a work-related trip and not having good airport WiFi is a problem. Sure, I can use data from my Verizon account. But I can also try to fly through airports that don't have WiFi problem that this serious. The only other more moderate negative is the lack of electrical outlets at the gate seating areas. So overall, if you're traveling for pleasure, or don't rely on WiFi while in a airport, Lambert Field in St. Louis is a nice airport to fly through. On the other hand, if you count on airport WiFi, I'd avoid this one if possible.

"allow 3 hours+ to check a bag"

(United States)

Allow 3 hours+ to check a bag and get through security. Arrived at 3.30am for a 5.55 flight. TSA did not open security till 4.30am and then it was only one line. Already 200 people in line waiting when they opened. Did not open 2nd line until 5.30am. People running through airport in their socks and holding up their pants carting their shoes and belts. Flight was 30 minutes late to take off because of TSA.

St Louis Airport customer review

(United States)

Of the Missouri airports, STL is superior to the rest! The airport has been recently renovated, and I think the improvements have definitely created an added value. Lots of good restaurants (both local places and national chains), and terminal has definitely benefited from the increased lighting. I think the airport still struggles with the American / TWA fiasco, but is working hard to be better.

St Louis Airport customer review

(United States)

Had a 1 hour layover in Terminal 2 here. You can tell there's been a lot of upgrades as it's a lot brighter and cleaner than it used to be. Plenty of restaurants options but surprisingly no fast food options which I would have needed for a shorter layover. A number of gates are unused since American pulled back. One thing I really liked was the number of power outlets available at gates. Every 4 seats there was a power station with 3 regular outlets and 2 USB outlets to charge phones computers tablets etc.

St Louis Airport customer review

(Australia)

When held in its proper context of a medium-sized Midwestern city airport Lambert meets or exceeds expectations. An F4 tornado struck the main terminal (now known as Terminal 1) two years ago and it has taken a while for the terminal to get back on its feet. The proof of the rebuilding and improvement efforts can be seen in Concourses A and C with sleek modern facilities. The TSA line moved quickly and was managed professionally. The public transportation system known as Metrolink is clean and inexpensive to use. On the whole I used St. Louis Lambert Field three times last month and have nothing bad to say at all. I highly recommend using it.

St Louis Airport customer review

(United States)

Lambert has seen better days. Since the "tornado" Concourse C is closed D is practically deserted with American flights. The airport is way out of date tired dirty crowded TSA is surly and "full of themselves" you can't imagine the arrogance. Prices are as high as LA but the restaurant service is a joke. I wish I could have seen Lambert back in the day now it is just dusty dirty and broken down. Very sad and frustrating place to visit.
