Ralph, Lois, Bonnie and Don pass time away playing cards during lunch at Burger King in T2 while they wait to board their flight to Fort Lauderdale.
It’s always nice to have good friends as traveling buddies. Ralph, Lois, Bonnie and Don have been friends for more than 15 years. They said they have been traveling buddies every since they met. The couples used their time wisely while waiting for their Southwest Airlines flight to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, by playing cards. Ralph and Don chuckled when asked the name of the card game they were playing. Ralph looked up and said, "You won’t believe it. We’re playing Mindless Progression!" All four of them laughed on cue. They were heading to Fort Lauderdale where they will board a ship for a nine day Caribbean cruise!

Whether your coming or going, a lot of folks are passing through the newly completed enclosed walkways connecting Arrivals Drive and Bag Claim in Terminal 1. The overhead structure was completely rebuilt at exits 12 and 17 with all glass ceilings and walls. This allows more light to fill the major pathways that lead people to and from shuttles and other vehicles. The glass features high tech layers from offering improved safety, security and UV protections. A decorative window film gives the walkways a distinct and modern look. The Airport just completed the final phase of the project. New tile was installed on the ramps and stairways improving safety and adding a finishing touch to these major entrances and exit points.

Whelan Security Guard Scott Sparks takes a moment to pose for St. Louis Convention and Tourism’s Paulette Koons during a photo shoot.
Whelan Security Guard Scott Sparks was elated to be named a Hospitality Super Hero by the St. Louis Convention and Tourism Commission (SLCVC). As a Super Hero, Scott had to reenact the life saving efforts he performed on a visitor at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. Scott was called upon by a female visitor as he worked the taxi starter stand. The woman’s husband had fallen ill in the Terminal 1 garage. Scott quickly closed up the stand and followed the woman to her husband’s location. He found her husband face down on the concrete. Scott rolled him over to find he was purple. He remained calm and quickly called paramedics. After checking the man’s pulse he performed CPR and administered an automatic external defibrillator before paramedics arrived. Sparks will be honored at the SLCVC Annunal Meeting and Hospitality Heroes Luncheon for his heroic actions.
