Travel insight - St Louis Lambert

Anybody been through St Louis Lambert airport since the recent security scare? I’m in St Louis with my wife visiting our son. Travelling home on Monday.

If you have specifics for this airport (delay times, different procedures than previous, etc.) can you share details. Of course we know all the general guidelines - not much point in repeating them here…


Think randomness of procedures, absolute adherence to procedures, and l-o-ng waiting with lots of eyes watching as these are accomplished. Details change irregularly! Enjoy!

Being a STL native, Lambert is notorious for the long lines. Just get there with tons of time to spare and be prepared to wait. Unless you’re flying SW, and their terminal moves much more quickly than the main terminal, or is it Terminal 1 now. The airport changed the names of the terminals recently.

Good luck!
