    Waiver found here.

    • Travel to/from STL from 4/22-4/27 is eligible
    • Can begin travel as late as 5/1
    • Original inventory NOT required
    • Ticket reissuing fees are waved
    For those who are interested in the story/damage to STL and the AA concourse, see CNN video and story here. Also a twitter picture from inside the terminal here.

    The airport is closed indefinitely. Many windows were broken in both terminals and the airport is currently using emergency generators for electrical power.

    No serious injuries have been reported at the airport. People were evacuated from aircraft on the ground.

    More generally, emergency warning sirens apparently worked and gas leaks were dealt with quickly. No fatalities were reported in the area, but the pictures show a wide area of extreme devastation.

    Buildings are being evaluated for structural damage this morning. The airport will be closed at least for today. There is a lot of debris to clean up, but I suspect that can be done today. If there is no structural damage to the buildings, the airport might be open on at least a limited basis tomorrow.

    Posted in another thread but wanted to share here, too. For those familiar with STL or who just want to see the power of the nature moving through it....


    Security camera video from inside the terminals were released and posted on Youtube. Some scary/amazing stuff here:

    C Concourse - This one is the most compelling/dynamic. Wow.

    TSA Check point - See the ticket machine being pushed around like it weighs nothing.

    Lambert 1 - Not much here.
